Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Panera Bread full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Very flexible with schedule, free meals, great fun people to work with.

Cons

Very hard to move up past shift supervisor, they hire upper management from outside of company and do not promote within company. Very high stress environment for low pay. Communication between corporate and management is very poor, no one ever knows what's going on with new changes. Very bad technological advances. Computer system is always crashing during high volume times and angry customers.

Advice to Management

Take care of your people instead of always worrying about numbers.
