    Pros

    Opportunities inside the company. They train you on everything you want to lear inside the company. Most co workers are friendly.

    Cons

    You are under pressure all the time. Specially on rush hours. If you are not fast enough you will hear it from the senior management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay.

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Miami, FL (US)
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Miami, FL (US)

    I worked at Burger King full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you're willing to ignore office decorum and work unbelievably long hours you can advance very quickly with little or no real experience. Its a great place for new college grads to work so they can learn how to avoid companies like this for the remainder of their career.

    Cons

    Everyone is treated as a commodity and BK IS your life. There is no care or concern for your job satisfaction as long as you are willing to do whatever you're told to do. Almost every timeline is close to impossible to meet and quantity of work is far more important than quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to value employees and appreciate real contributions to the business.

    Pros

    This work place Is very fast pace especially after 7pm if you can't do multiple things without getting mixed up I wouldn't recommend this job.

    Sometimes managers send too many people home and your left alone in the back

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing much, just keep watch on how many people you send home you could damage the business
