Great internal structure with better than expected unit cohesion
Catering Sales Coordinator (Current Employee) – Burlington, MA – July 17, 2016
Panera Bread, Boston Bread, LLC. provides a stable workplace environment with expected daily operations. This gives employees a regimented daily routine in which they know what to expect and are able to perform accordingly. With this, however, there is limited room for growth and development aside from the standard progression from Associate to Shift Manager to Assistant Manager, etc. With associates who look for career growth into Sales, Marketing, and Administrative positions, there seems to be a stagnant environment for such development. Wages seem to be better than average for each position within the Bakery-Cafes; however, reviews seems to be delayed and wage increases tend to be less than what should be provided for exceptional abilities, skills, and work ethic displayed by above-average associates.
Flexible schedules, stable internal structure, fast-paced environment
Minimal career development, less than livable wages, performance expectations beyond position
