    Former Employee - Doesn't Matter Because OSI's Titles Are Far From Correct in Tampa, FL

    I worked at OSI Restaurant Partners

    Pros

    Very laid back atmosphere. Fun place to work. Great people. Spend money on technology. Trying to improve their operations. Ideas are taken into account (sometimes).

    Cons

    Departments are too siloed. Each department is treated completely different. Lack of communication. Lack of truly caring about what their employees go through to get the job done. At times there are no clue as to what some people do or departments for that matter. Salary is way off base for some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication, get rid of the poor performers, change up management a bit, get a feel for what employees actually do in their jobs. Fix the job titles and then adjust the salaries accordingly.

    Pros

    The company culture is fun as there is a large focus on employees. There are often events in the entire office for all departments such as office olympics

    Cons

    unfortunately t there's a lot of frustration with partners and various departments. Accountants often feel like secretaries with accounting degrees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the accountants less stores and let them focus more on financial analysis then on completing a number of stores

    Pros

    The flexibility in hours is a great benefit to working at OSI. If you need to take an hour off to go to a doctor's appointment or go see your kid in school, they will let you. Their comittment to having a balance between work and personal life is one of the best things about working for OSI restaurant partners. I also like the relaxed dress code. I can't complain about being able to wear jeans every day of the week. They also support a fun atmosphere to work in and team building is key. They are also committed to doing good for the community.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are lacking. The company does not contribute to 401ks. Also there is a lack of job growth in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly in these economic times, I am happy to have my job. They have cut back on financial items but I still have my job so I am happy about that.
