    I have been working at Restaurant.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Environment. Lots of really smart people in all deprtments. Like being able to go to work in jeans. Get to have lots of fun. I have been promoted 2x's since I started at Restaurant.com. You get to work with the latest technologies and systems. Overall, employees are treated really great and paid really well.

    Cons

    Things change quickly at Restaurant.com, so if you are not a person that likes change, then this is not the environment for you. It is very fast paced and you have to be able to think on your feet.

    Advice to Management

    Share more information with the employees and communicate better about the goals and direction.

    I have been working at Restaurant.com full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The inside sales department offers a fun, competitive environment with lots of incentives and bonuses to fatten up my paycheck on top of my monthly commissions and base salary. The sales management team is great and has really helped sharpen my closing skills so it has become much easier to add restaurants to our great marketing program. Playing ping pong and darts everyday is an added bonus!

    Cons

    Needs clearer lines of communication from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Be more visible. Spend more time with the employees that make Restaurant.com a great place to work!

    I have been working at Restaurant.com full-time

    Pros

    When I read the reviews posted, almost all of them are from people that no longer even work for Restaurant.com. They are giving an impression that is totally not true. The decision to do away with the outside sales force was one of the best economic decisions that was made last year for the company as a whole. The growth of the Inside Sales Force and IC programs, have more than made up and exceeded any sales numbers that were previously obtained. Restaurant.com is a fun place to work where many employees have prospered and grown. A lot of employees are promoted from within. The pay is outstanding and well above average and the benefits are fantastic! Do you have to work hard and be dedicated, absolutely!

    Cons

    There are times when management does not listen to the ideas of the employees. There are times when the focus of the organization changes quickly. It is a very fast paced company and you have to be able to change with the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you are doing, because Restaurant.com continues to grow and prosper!

    I don't know I can really think of any cons about working at Restaurant.com. Like any organization I believe it is important to review the lines of communication within the organization and continue to look for ways to improve this area.

    Please continue to recognize and reward the hard working employees of Restaurant.com. It is a great motivator and nice to know how much you appreciate them.
