    I worked at Bon Appétit Management full-time

    Pros

    Great corporate mission and values. Unique in that Chefs are allowed to do fine dining level food in a corporate/educational setting.

    Cons

    Preferred vendors and limits on what the Chefs can order due to company initiatives and volume pricing at corporate level can be a hindrance. Human Resources stretched extremely thin and as such issues are handled poorly. Sometimes company gets too caught up in its vision and loses sight of cooking good food. Increasing involvement by Compass Group takes some of the fun away.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the HR situation, some of the gaffes I have seen (and experience) should be embarrassing for a company the size of Bon App. Protect the brand better.
