    I have been working at Chef Works full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good product with fun customers

    Cons

    Management has no regard for their inside sales staff. Their decisions on when an account is "corporate" is arbitrary. If it is convenient for management or makes their outside team happy, they deem it a "corporate account" and strip you of it, with no compensation. Their decisions are inconsistent. If you get your hands on an account with potential, your own manager will try and take the account from you and hand it over to someone else, without any reward. Everyone in upper management is related to one another and their decisions benefit "the family" and not their employees.

    I worked at Chef Works full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and decent benefits

    Cons

    They don't treat people equally. If you are on the 'friends & family plan', you'll be fine. They don't enforce policies. They grow 20-30% most years, but don't hire staff to accomodate the growth, so it's a big disorganized, insanely busy place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Start enforcing policies on the people who don't follow them. Be honest and do what's RIGHT, not what will make you look good to other people.

    I worked at Chef Works full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good for someone right out of university with little to no work experience. The management will hold your hand and will control every project you work on.

    Cons

    This is not a good company for someone who can self manage and is forward thinking.
    The job is sold as customer service, but it is primarily data processing and answering phone calls.
    The management speaks inappropriately about employees to other staff members when that employee is not present.
    There is little to no communication from management to staff members through anything but email unless the employee initiates it.
    Disapproval is handled by ignoring the employee rather than addressing the problem to resolve any issues.
    A very unpleasant working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Create a management plan that encourages creativity and taking initiative rather than condemning employees who implement organization and new revenue streams.
