    Pros

    Free food, thats about it

    Terrible management, terrible co-workers, disgusting enviroment, I've witnessed the cooks smoking while making the food, I've been harassed and threated by co-workers, terribly run.

    Work better with employees and get rid of the crappy ones. Do not pick favorites and actually do something when there is a complaint instead of making the staff have to deal with it
