    I worked at Papa John's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Almost unlimited room for advancement, franchise opportunities and corporate controls to assure quality across the world.

    Seems to have slipped into a state of disconnect. Hard to get in touch with upper management

    Advice to Management

    "Better" procedures to aquire and keep talent, foster growth from within.

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

    Pros

    Where to start? Fantastic culture of "Go Left" (i.e. what got us here won't get us there), P.A.P.A. (People Are Priority Always), celebrating success, and enough transparency to "take the hit" and move on. Senior leadership are great examples of the company values by and large. Most of the company is laser focused and committed to the same foundational objectives. Little things like jeans for a majority of the week, and onsite Starbucks etc. perks.

    More of a technology leader than you'd think...Digital drives 60%+ of sales. We won Technomic's Restaurant Consumers’ Choice Award for use of technology to improve the customer experience, and were also recently recognized in the Top 5 for Mobile among 75+ restaurant brands.

    Cons

    I haven't discovered many downsides to be honest. There are some politics but far less than I expected for a company this size.

    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.

    I worked at Papa John's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy fun job. Pizza is a better job then flipping burgers.

    Cons

    Employers make promises they don't keep. Management is very lazy enforcing standards. Worse part is the cleanliness standards are not always met until right before an inspection. Meaning extra work for very low paid employees.

    Advice to Management

    Adhere to standards, and don't screw over your employees.
