This is not an isolated incident of Panda Express-related content catching the eye of the masses.

On a Reddit thread [1], it was described by users that stringent policies and a high-pressure environment characterize the work culture at Panda Express. Employees have reported feeling constantly watched and pressured to adhere to strict rules, which has created a somewhat militarized work atmosphere.

This has led to dissatisfaction among some employees, who find the management style too harsh and the rules somewhat arbitrary, especially regarding the uniform policy. Despite this, there are also positive aspects to working at Panda Express [2], with some employees enjoying their time there.

However, the negative experiences shared by others suggest that the work culture at Panda Express may benefit from some improvements to create a more supportive and positive work environment.
