    I have been working at Papa John's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for growth for self-starters. I've been with Papa John's for approximately 3 years.I have seen first hand how many employees have started out in the restaurant and have been promoted throughout the organization. Very fun and diverse atmosphere that promotes creativity. I have worked in IS for other large organizations within the Louisville over the past 20 years and am glad I found my way into the Papa John's Family!

    Cons

    Under-estimation of project scope and planning is lacking sometimes. Rate of growth vs. growth of resources.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the vision gets blurred by the rate of change. Spend more time thinking through the ramifications of major changes and how to "Manage the change" instead of "Break/Fix" after the change.
