You will have no life if you work here.
Waitress/Bar Staff (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London8 February 2018
This company expect you to work 60 hours per week for a low salary and do NOT understand work/life balance. They are completely oblivious and unsupportive of mental health issues and management haven’t got a clue what they are doing.

DO NOT WORK HERE.
Pros
Free lunch from limited list.
Cons

There were several good company perks for example discounts on food and drink at several of the companies well known restaurant chains. The day to day work load was quite extensive.

Used to be good, became horrific
General Manager (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, Cambridgeshire2 November 2017
I worked almost 7 years for Bella Italia. It used to be fun and enjoyable.
The company is not doing well and is massively cutting in labour. The standards are pretty low now.
Operation managers and area managers change constantly. They put a lot of pressure and very little support on their employees.
They do not respect or value people either. The management turn over is very high because they require a lot for very little money.
Pros
Free meal
Cons
Long hours, hard work not value, a lot of pressure, double standards

Company's Values - illusion.
Managers who still your ideas.
Lack of teamwork.
Connections worth more than skills.
*restaurants
Area managers put big presure on GM

If you are happy to be treated like a dogs body this is the company for you
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  London23 June 2017
Avoid at all costs. You won't be paid for the hard work and effort you put in. The company is happy to let you work long hours with little to no recognition for your efforts. Very demoralising!
Pros
None
Cons
Happy to let you work like a slave with little recongnition, unethical work practices, management lack integrity

Commie Chef (Current Employee) –  Warminster, Wiltshire16 April 2017
What more need saying. You're at work more than ever and the money's not to grate. The management is terriable and no one gives a monkey about you. That CDG for you though.
Pros
Free team meals
Cons
Stupidly long hours

Café Rouge Chelmsford.
Morning Cleaner at Café Rouge (Former Employee) –  Chelmsford, Essex13 April 2017
Enjoyed working there, however errors in wage payments were too frequent and correction of these errors tended to take between 6 and 10 weeks.

Staff turnover probably a bit High. I worked there for 21 months. In that time we had 3 different Branch/General Managers and 3 different Head Chefs.
Pros
50% Staff discount.
Cons
Unprofessional management team.
