    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Così full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A handful of coworkers, otherwise nothing.

    Cons

    Very low pay for the amount of work you are expected. Also worked some pretty ridiculous 10+ hour shifts.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Così full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I had some of the best employees ever at one of the stores I worked at. Benefits and paid vacation for full time employees is pretty good. No drug testing.

    Cons

    Corporate does not care about its salaried employees. Be prepared to be overworked and extremely underpaid and get no thanks for it. Worked 60 to 70 hour weeks when one manager got "too stressed out" and had to take time off. I would not recommend this job to my worst enemy. Wouldn't let me make the overall rating zero stars so just pretend that one star isn't there. If you are willing to take a promotion just know that...

    Advice to Management

    Didn't have any issues with management other than one store. Just don't be lazy and expect your other managers to do all the work.

    Cons

    - You have to negotiate a good salary from day one. Salary increases after hire are very low 1 - 1.5% annually - Over the last two - three years the company as undergone some major restructuring issues and still face many up hill battles. There has been two CEO's in the last two years, recent released there VP, and let go a host of regional and store managers. - Lack of self-identity, Cosi struggles to fine their...

    Advice to Management

    Training, Training, Training and more Training. Don't let our MIT's go into a store unprepared. Everyone is overwhelmed; from the TGM's down to Shift leaders. We need to get our Identity back! We need to be Cosi again, not a giant yellow box that tries to compete with Panera & Corner Bakery. RETHINK our menu options... and stop putting out LTO's without all the proper training and media!!!! Seriously.
