    Pros

    Company culture is outstanding. Human Resources and hiring Managers ensure that all new hires naturally embrace the company's principal of 'the golden rule.' Excellence in service is, therefore, both natural and globally consistent.
    A work/life balance is also expected of employees and there is a genuine camaraderie among colleagues.

    Cons

    Employees do not want to leave! Although the wisdom and know-how from seasoned employees is most often a positive, there are some employees that may not demonstrate business acumen in the 21st century. The company is sometimes too nice though as employees become almost tenured despite performance or overall contribution to the growth of the business.

    Pros

    great learning opportunity as quality of food is always the focus. Life work balance is relatively better than the standard in this industry.

    Cons

    Instructions from senior cooks and management can be contradicting and confusing. New hires have to "tough it out" before being promoted to full-time or even part time.
