    Pros

    Networking, great colleagues, office perks such as on-site clinic, dry cleaning, fitness center, café, etc...; employee discounts,

    Cons

    Benefits were terrible for such a large organization, they had to own the rights to any systems they had (i.e; ATS, Sales Software, POS, etc...) and these systems were mediocre at best. IT would spend so much time on fixing flaws in the existing systems, that nothing would ever get done in a timely manner and you were always told about the "IT freeze" which just meant that they were not interested in helping you, you had to take ownership to find a work-around to the problems.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the basics. Your culture isn't strong and that is why the talent keeps leaving. Its food service, not rocket science. Stop going recruiting people from elite, Ivy League schools to run the show instead of focusing on those who bring more to the table and can improve culture, profits and retention.
