. . . so Cheesecake!

Vice President OE (Current Employee)
Calabasas, CA

I have been working at Cheesecake Factory full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat food, great people, great atmosphere. People care about the guest, the staff, the food and the beautiful restaurant. Fun place to work and be proud of! We like to say our staff and managers are ". . . so Cheesecake" as a way to say they are so wonderful.

ConsIt's a busy place with a huge menu. So time goes by fast but there is much to do. Having lots of hands and help from others to learn so much is what makes it viable.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue doing what you do to support the amazing staff.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

ProsGreat brand recognition, great culture, large organization with systems and processes in place. They are an industry leader, tasty food, methodical about every step, standards and quality are unparalleled at their volume and numbers.

ConsImpossible work-life balance, internal politics, growing pains, movement towards mre bureaucratic structure, vulnerable to economic factors, stress, high standards
