    Pros

    Ok hours, people are kinda cool

    Cons

    Typical too much management, head stuck in their laptops doing nothing then over explaining or crying about nothing - the amount of nepotism would make the Romans blush.

    Advice to Management

    Yeah, no.

    Pros

    You are able to be creative and voice your opinion about most things freely

    Cons

    Pay raises are very small.
    Way to many managers to employees.
    They like to give you the run around when asking for something like raises or time off. No real advancement opportunities.
    Low starting wages

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a better pay rate starting and larger pay increases.

    Pros

    Interacting with the students was fun, unemployment during mid breaks.

    Cons

    Grossly underpaid job, backstabbing and no disciplinary action taken for known repeaters and an old crone who slings insults and curses. Mgt doesnt conduct proper investigations into matters of he said she said, just fires on hearsay. Mgt couldnt care less about their workers, and it shows in their paychecks. Dont reccommend this place unless youre retired and want something to do. Dead end job.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the hourly wage and you may get better committed employees. Care about your employees and reward great work because as of now you show no gratitude.

    Pros

    Great benefits. M-F hours with holidays off. Support farm to fork programs. Allow chefs the opportunity to create their own menu and specials.

    Cons

    Management needs to be supportive of staff. False promises of growth opportunities within the company. Biased yearly reviews

    Advice to Management

    Support, be objective, proper follow through, promote within, fire when needed, pay better

    Pros

    Learned high volume scaling.
    Close to my home.
    Free meal per shift.
    Lots of co-workers.

    Cons

    Management is only out for themselves and does very little to help employees.
    HR is a joke and does NOT care about the workers well being as they insist on.
    I was injured on the job and no one asked how I was or inquired about the braces I started wearing to work, when ironically every 10 at 10am meeting ends with how important our health and safety are to BM.
    This is not a assistant position as stated, it is a cookie bake off for catering position and should be listed as such. All I did was bake off 15 items in 90 mins every morning with no help or prep help and bake cookies. That's it. Of course trash and cleaning, but NO TYPE OF PASTRY ASSISTANCE to the Pastry chef at all.
    HR advised me wrong and took $500 out of my paycheck 2 weeks before Christmas.

    I really wish the CEO would look at this location.

    Advice to Management

    Follow what you preach at the 10 at 10.

    Pros

    Good food and benefits that's all really. Always finding new recipes to learn and work with.

    Cons

    Management isn't fair. Having a lot of experienced background and wanting to challenge myself is not an option here. Always made excuses as to why I needed to stay low.

    Advice to Management

    Better training amongst management and hire managers who actually care about their employees.

    Pros

    Money and Insurance that's it. Maybe schedules will fit for college students. I don't have any pros to think of

    Cons

    Company which doesn't even have any profit sharing, stock, and so on that based on stupid management.
    Experienced one managers who doesn't know how to control himself towards every single girls like desperate animal. So many discriminations every where with running their mouth without filtering in their head. Maybe they don't have any brains to think of before they act.

    Advice to Management

    What can I say? It's just messed up.
    They don't even deserve one. I wish I could put 0 out of 5.

    Pros

    I love being able to write my own menus and do what I love. Compensated lunch is a plus.

    Cons

    Lack of disrespect from management to employees, and between employees. A highly negative, draining workplace from clocking in to the end of shift.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate and respect your staff, ditch your negativity, step in and help us when you clearly know we're behind the 8 ball. I've been in the work force for 15 years and have never had a management team so willing to sit by the wayside when their staff needs support, in my entire career.
