I worked at Einstein Bros. Bagels full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Work/Life balance is nice. Benefits are decent with the exception of 401k which they dont match at all.

Cons

Everything from top to bottom is micro managed to the 10th degree. There is no future for anyone except officer level employees. The keep cutting labor in the stores and asking everyone to do more. Very mixed ideologies.

Advice to Management

If you want the company to truly be successful then you have to invest in its people. Currently your employees talent level is at the bottom of the totem pole because you don't pay for success. Training, Marketing, and Acquisition departments need a lot of work! Good luck getting where you want to go without changing the plan of attack!

    Pros

    Sometimes it can be a fun work environment. If you're not a manager. They have been able to work around schedule to make it easy.

    Cons

    As a manager you don't get paid enough. It can be extremely stressful. And the demand for bagels is slowing down so sales are not as good for those company's that are not located in a city.

    Advice to Management

    I wish you would take a day or two to see what it is like for some of your lower selling stores. Some of the things you guys take away from the menu are the best selling. And some of the new innovated ideas you come up with really aren't that good. And quit changing the prices so much.
