    I worked at Bon Appétit Management part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    All of my exposure to management gave me lots of experience learning to improve my food knowledge, and gave me the opportunity to help develop other staff members. The company is clearly committed to buying local products and supporting the community they serve. The quality of the food is outstanding. I worked in a variety of capacities for Bon Appetit, and while catering or serving or prepping food itself is not fabulous, the positions are paid well for the area, and it is stable work as long as you work hard! I could always work if I wanted to (as a part-time employee, I could pick up extra shifts, or help in another department).

    Cons

    Many supervisor changes in my years there. Long hours- but that comes with catering jobs! Food service is sometimes repetitive, but again- that's the job.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for them is that you could get a job anywhere in the USA or plan to move somewhere you always have desired to live in.

    Cons

    One of the downside is that they don't increase your salary that much often even if you requested they still linger around to not increase it.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to keep the best management giving better incentives for those who go beyond their capacities to keep the company in good track with the clients

    Pros

    It was great to work there because of the different cultures your exposed to. Working at a Ivy League University; I was able to develop my communication skills better in a business environment. Along with helping management stock the store before and after working hours

    Cons

    From the time I was there, management was great. However in the year 2014; the branch I worked in started a Union force and killed the old way employees where treated.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the union that is in place (if still exists) and continue with the old habits of management; prior 2014. The employees there are really unhappy about it.
