I have been working at Dean & DeLuca as an intern

Pros

Working for a company with a strong brand like D&D is a pro, and for food lovers it is a great environment.

Cons

Low morale among some employees, most workers didn't actually seem very passionate about the company or even the food. Was hoping to see others with strong interest in specialty foods, as I had, but it didn't seem to be the case.

    I have been working at Dean & DeLuca full-time

    Pros

    There are a some really good people working for the company. Some really amazing chefs. You get the opportunity to see a lot of new food trends and interesting artisan food products from around the world. There is large growth potential due to new ownership pushing for aggressive expansion.

    Cons

    Recent changes in management have created an overall negative company culture, confusing and unstructured and poor communication. Expansion plans are unorganized and last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a healthy culture and live it top to bottom. Develop training/initiation procedures that ensure the consistency of brand integrity. Clearly communicate business goals and vision on a regular basis.

    Pros

    It had flexible working hours, which is great for students. The team was also very helpful and patient with new hires.

    Cons

    The wages are minimum wage, and the work is not easy. They are strict with what type of black shoes to wear.
