    I have been working at Panera Bread part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice and friendly management. However, they did not inform/ train the employees with proper facts then crammed us with information before Auditor's visits.

    Cons

    Does not care about the hourly associates. There will be no raise. Friends who got promoted as Shift Managers still got paid their original wage, 7.85, which was less than what I made.

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

    Pros

    Generally you come for the paycheck, but stay for the people. The management and associates are generally a good mix and easy enough to get along with.
    They work well with school schedules, and there are almost always hours to be found if you want them.

    Cons

    They don't pay well, and expect a lot from their employees. The company's rhetorical culture speaks of great things, but the actual employees are omitted from the positive points within the company.

    It's just disheartening to put so much care and effort into a business to ultimately realize that they don't care much for any of their people.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management - this is a multi million dollar company that customers and employees alike want to be goodwill ambassadors. Change your labor standards to take care of both. If the employees get overworked, they quit. If the customers aren't satisfied, then they go somewhere else too. To avoid this, you could just put one more person on the clock to help out.
