    I worked at Corner Bakery Cafe part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The job itself was easy, I could have 4 hour shifts on days that I had school, coworkers were nice and friendly

    Cons

    Found upper management to be condescending, lazy

    Advice to Management

    If you see employees struggling on the floor during a rush, jump in and assist. Hiding in the office during lunch rush is a huge slap in the face to us.

    50% off all food items. Everyone has a good time talking to each other and laughing. There are many chains as well.

    Weekends are crazy, which can affect everyone's moods, especially management. If management is stressed, they may direct a lot of animosity towards you .

    I worked at Corner Bakery Cafe part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People you work with are generally good people (although I hated my manager),

    Cons

    Cooks are worked very hard compared to the other positions but are paid the same salary and do not make tips like servers, my manager would not let me cut hours during finals week even when I asked politely.

    Advice to Management

    If your employee is a student, prioritize his/her education.

    I worked at Corner Bakery Cafe full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot talent is at the office and in ops. If they want to keep these people, the company needs to clean the decks and start over with some of the upper management who are crashing the place. Casual work environment. Good coffee. Good size work stations. Nice office in general.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, direction, communication and decision making. Small office but big egos, CEO doesn't even remotely make an effort to speak to people that are not at a director level or above. It's arrogant. This company really needs to get it together for their sake. I would not recommend this as a place to be employed. Does not have a 401k match program.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your people or your customers will never care about you. Act like you give a damn. It's starts from the inside out. Your never going to get the sales you want with what/ how you are running things.
