    Pros

    Great management. Caring upbeat coworkers. The work environment, particularly for the "restaurant industry" was very pleasant. I looked forward to going to work. Management was always flexible to new ideas.

    Cons

    I didn't make as much money on a regular basis as I would have expected that I would have. Sometimes there was work politics.... But really not too much.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for making CMR an enjoyable place to work!

    Pros

    Cameron Mitchell takes very good care of their employees. Management is very good, they truly care about their employees and will help in every way they can.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities for promotion and pay isn't very good, regardless of your performance. The gossip among the employees has no bounds and can be very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Promotion/pay raises should be offered more often for exceptional performance.

    Restaurant work so it's physically demanding and can be mentally taxing when having to deal with rude guests.

    Pros

    People are all willing to teach you something new, great promotion from within. Food is delicious, restaurant treats you well when you dine

    Cons

    Weak pay, corporate people often come in and stand over your shoulder which is annoying, and food cost inane really considered. Not really given time to eat, and employee meals are usually the same thing

    Pros

    Great company to work for with great culture and philosophy. The money is more than worth it!

    Cons

    You are working while everyone else is not.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on being on your goal of being better today than you were yesterday and better tomorrow than you are today.

    Pros

    amazing holidays (even closed during the super bowl!) - decent benefits- management empowers employees to make decisions to better the guest experience.

    Cons

    company is based in OHIO and mostly promotes those from that area

    not a lot of support from management for team challenges

    no chance for upward mobility even though they tell you otherwise

    don't hold up to company values

    Pros

    -You can hopefully make just enough money to support yourself.
    -Health insurance is offered, but is a "mini-plan". It is hopeful that you don't ever face a serious medical condition because you will have difficulty obtaining enough medical coverage to cover the expenses. Combined with a low wage, that could be extremely detrimental to your financial well-being.

    Cons

    -Management and Upper Management is treated much better than "associates" in terms of benefits and "perks/ bonuses/ and rewards". This is blatantly obvious to the associates and is very disheartening to see, which results in low morale and general unhappiness. For a company that emphasizes "putting our associates first" as part of their core philosophy, this hardly seems to pertain anymore.
    -There are only so many spots to grow or move up within the company even though they are a growing company. Your fate is determined to whether upper management likes you enough to give you a chance. Definite office politics going on here.

    Advice to Management

    Take a moment and remember "the little people" who do the heavy work which provides you with your great financial return. Cameron seems to be more concerned about growing the company and making money than focusing on strengthening his current brands and supporting employees whom grow these brands.
