    I worked at Tavistock Restaurants full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The wages were fine, though I worked there for three years & still left without making the median income of the city we were based in.

    Cons

    Absolutely toxic environment with very few perks. Very low morale around corporate office. Instead of having working systems put in place, we were forced to cobble together broken systems and hope for the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take value in your employees from the bottom to the top. They're the ones padding your pockets.

    Supervise food prep staff, and delegate tasks as needed.

    I have been working at Tavistock Restaurants

    Pros

    People are nice and try to be helpful.

    Cons

    Bad benefits, small salaries, old school mentality, no clear paths for promotion or advancement. They hold on to ineffective people due to loyalty. There is a do minimum possible mentality. Everyone is frustrated and upset all the time the environment is extremely negative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire smarter and younger people to change the mentality and corporate environment. Until you can wear jeans on Fridays, have some fun and room for advancement you will never get A players. Smart people work with smart people ...
