    I have been working at Nando's UK full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment with high quality colleagues. Free food and payed breaks. Managers are normally easy going people.

    Cons

    Shift ours are not well organised, even with a low hour week. Low numbers of staffs in busy days and not well organised break distribution.

    Advice to Management

    General view in busy days, stress is like a chain and envolves all people, so if you give the right amount of care for each person of the chain, all will feel busy but will also feel that someone are looking after them, just that is enough keep everybody satisfied in busy day.
