    Pros

    The people you work with and the team atmosphere

    Cons

    Upper management does not practice what they preach... they don't take care of those who try to take care of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward hard work...and those who go the extra mile..... not the people who screw up time and time again

    Pros

    The people you work with, other bartenders and servers, are amazing, generous and real people.

    Cons

    Clients tend to treat the staff poorly. Management likes to talk down to and belittle staff. Overtime after 40 hours in a week i.e. if you worked back to back 16 hour days, you only receive and extra $7.25 per day for what they refer to as "spread of hours." Understaffed in some areas and over staffed in others. Poor food for staff as well. Not a lot of opportunity for financial advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your servers like people, not like dogs.

    Pros

    This company cares deeply about its service, but it has shifted its focus towards the meal aspect of catering. This can be beneficial, because the food ensures the success of a catering company...however...the service can guarantee its failure...the wait staff need more training and the bartenders need more of an incentive to work other than just being able to talk more frequently with the guests. Captains need to stick together more and Maitre'Ds need to be recognized for their ability to make the client feel like their event is the most important event of the season.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional at times, but everyone works as a team...unless they are tired, frustrated, or just don't want to be there that day. It is not a consistent source of income for most but it can be quite lucrative during the high season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote staff based on management ability, not based on availability and loyalty.
