    I worked at Brinker full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The upper corporate management takes great care of the unit managers. They were far ahead of other national chains in compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    As with any unit level restaurant management the varying schedule and hours are rough. I had negative experiences with a poor AD but I believe this was an isolated experience.

    Advice to Management

    Fewer management programs analyzing personality, work style, motivation basis, and on and on. In the 3 years I was there we went through 3 different programs analyzing how we could be more productive.
