    Communication from upper Management

    Money not good

    Advice to Management

    Promote within
    Pay what your staff is worth
    Don't make polices that are vague or management does not have control over like missing paper work from an a office space that is in middle of kitchen with no door and place to lock up.

    Cons

    By far the worst management of any company I've worked for. Being a large corporation, Einsteins really could not care less about its employees. The only clear goal for the company is cost cutting. Qualiy continues to plummet as executives race to find the cheapest alternatives. Management is cycled through quickly and in 3 years I've had 4 different assistant managers and 4 different general managers, all of which were terminated. Regional corporate hot shots travel store to store preaching the upcoming corporate audits to vastly underpaid staffs. After 4 years I've received a total of $0.75 cents in raises, 25 of which were mandatory due to new minimum wage laws. In the same amount of time a close friend worked at a local grocery store and received a total of $3.75 in raises. Bottomline you do NOT want to work here. You'll be vastly underpaid and overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like corporate slaves. Give your employees their rightfully deserved raises and reimplement the tip policy. Your employees deal with rude customers on a regular basis yet receive no compensation for any of their extra efforts. No other company I've worked for dehumanizes their staff more. Start from scratch and build the future on quality, quality employee treatment and quality food product as well. It costs $0.17 for a bagel, trim the profit margin slightly and invest in quality. Happy employees work better and harder so make them happy.
