I worked at Rocky Mountain Chocolate (More than 8 years)
Happy work environment, diverse backgrounds of employees in all departments, ability to learn a wide variety of jobs and skills, great benefits, financially stable company, the emphasis of working in teams and as a large team, smells awesome due to the production of chocolate and other sweets.
Wages for middle management and supervisors are below industry standards.

I worked at Rocky Mountain Chocolate (Less than a year)
Learning how to make the fudge, gourmet apples, and other treats was very fun. This was the most fun job I have ever had and I miss working here. The returning customers and most customers in general were always happy because they knew they were going to eat dessert soon.
Very rare, but some customers were not so great. There used to be a crackhead that would come into the shop and beg for treats with pennies that she had pulled out of her bra, she wasn't as bad as this one lady though that swore she had bit into pecans instead of macadamia nuts and made a huge ordeal about it during a rush. Those events were rare though. Other than that, the only con I can think of is that the location I worked at only paid $9 an hour. Towards the end, they cut our hours and kept bringing on new people which made me find other employment.
Advice to Management
Let people work 25-30hrs a week if they want to and don't try to cut their hours down to 15-20hrs a week if you don't need to.
