Pros

Pasta Pomodoro is a dynamic place to work; always changing and evolving. The food is great and most of the people are pleasant to work with. Anyone working in the corporate office has a chance to try new initiatives and ways of working, assuming the idea is logical. The owner is generous with free food and espresso for employees and he throws a generous holiday party for all restaurant and office staff. The owner is a generous with his time and works harder than anyone.

Cons

2008 meant hard times for the restaurant because of the economy, so there was a lot of negativity at the corporate office and at some of the restaurants. It may be the same in 2009, but time will only tell. Anyone who is not Italian and working in the corporate office will have a little culture shock. The Italian guys running Pasta Pomodoro don't bother with niceties or deference. Most of the time their rude, but you get used to it. And it is just the way they are. They're not actually trying to be mean. After most conversations with them though, you'll feel insulted and demoralized, but you toughen up.

Advice to Management

Trust who you hire.

    I worked at Pasta Pomodoro part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A great GM/RM makes the biggest difference in terms of work quality and satisfaction. I was lucky enough to have both, resulting in efficient shifts, a great team, and overall enjoyment during work.

    Cons

    The company has undergone many changes throughout the years. It now has more of a corporate outlook that focuses on profit and product; which is understandable considering it is a restaurant chain.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better understanding of how hard employees work and provide better communication in regards to company changes.

    Pros

    As an employee I made good money and further improved relationships with guest, surrounding companies and other employees.

    Cons

    They closed all their restaurants on the 26th of December in 2016. Disappointed and upset to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    Management was underpaid for the most part but still attempted to do their best to keep things moving.
