    I worked at Noon Mediterranean full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The restaurant is a great concept and has so much potential, but unfortunately it is being run into the ground by the founders.

    Cons

    There are a lot of eloquently-written reviews on here already that address working on the corporate side of VERTS, and all of them are spot-on, so I'll keep this short and sweet: Don't believe all of the beautifully-spun lies that they'll tell you in your interview. It's all nonsense. The company isn't growing. There is no real cooperation within the company and everyone seems to have their own competing visions.... The founders are aloof and delusional. There is no direction. The founders hired a lot of really talented, experienced people last year and didn't listen to any of them. Then, they laid off half the company six months later. They fly by the seat of their pants and don't really think through any of the decisions that they're making. Save yourself the trouble and don't work here.

    Advice to Management

    Accept that you don't know everything and that you aren't always the smartest people in the room. If you're going to hire people, you need to be open to their ideas and you need to accept that your ideas might not always be best. If you want to run this company by yourselves, then do it, and save everyone else the trouble of working towards an impossible goal.

    I worked at Noon Mediterranean for less than a year

    Pros

    I'd say the main pro is the concept. VERTS had every opportunity to be a game changing concept in the fast-casual space. The food was very tasty, but this is a fluctuating factor and not something that can consistently be counted on. The owners have been changing too much on the menu that the restaurant crew can't keep up with quality and quantity because they aren't given the resources to do so. It's a terrible... shame because they have some great leadership in place on the culinary/operational side. But these great leaders are not properly utilized and are unable to do their jobs to the best of their ability.

    Cons

    I'd say the main con is that the founders are not fit to be the leadership of an organization that is growing at the rate they are pushing for. They are both smart and capable, but they are grossly inexperienced as leaders. VERTS has no brand, no culture, and no definitive destination in which they are traveling. It's all fluff. The company is operating quarter to quarter, firing and rehiring positions as needed.... VERTS is a fluke. Everything about it is a fluke. VERTS is currently a shell of what it could have been waiting to shatter and cave into itself. It really is a shame.

    Advice to Management

    Stop globe trotting and blowing the millions and millions you brag (/lie) about taking in and realize your company is dying at the hands of yourselves. If you want VERTS to remain alive, bring in an experienced CEO to bring the concept, brand, and culture in the direction it needs to survive. In today's world of vast competition in the fast-casual space, foods that's tasty (sometimes) isn't going to cut it. CAVA... already has better food.... and actually has a brand and culture.
