    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Boston Market full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There should be something said about having the the top tiered management feel they can rely upon the lowest ranking management. From the General Manager to the Assistant Manager, there has always been a sense of an open environment where seemingly all management have the same responsibility and a responsibility to one another.

    Cons

    The responsibility put upon the hourly management is not taken lightly, however eventually there becomes an obvious dependency on lower management and subsequently leading to a very frequent sense of being over worked; additionally, there is a lack of acknowledgement for the work done from upper management, the rate of pay-increase does not equal the work and extra duties assigned, and finally, there is a constant

    Pros

    great training and generally a very very thought out concept.
    among the best QSR food around

    Cons

    bonus plan was profit-over-expense and store assignments greatly affected income potential. Every GM does the same work but one gets 'lucky' with a big store and another gets a low-volume bonus may be non-existent. Other brands unify bonus potential as % of salary id #s are made.

    Advice to Management

    reconsider bonus structure and manager schedules
