    Pros

    Flat organizational structure which gives a lot of access and exposure to VPs. Collaborative work environment which allows exposure into different areas.

    Cons

    Relying on other groups for information or deliverables from other groups. Seems like any company would have these types of challenges.

    Pros

    Very friendly culture and great work life balance.

    Cons

    Not a high performing environment. It does not seem like the best or smartest get promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent is not recognized enough here and when you look at management you wonder how some of them were promoted.

    Great company to work for at any level!

    Pros

    That atmosphere is very inclusive and you have constant room for growth - both personally and professionally. You have the ability to make your footprint and your successes and failures are the companies. There is a lot of motivation to work hard and reap the rewards.

    Cons

    There are so many departments and facets to the company that you will never know everyone and what each department does - but it's still encouraged to try!

    Pros

    The great co-workers that I worked with over 8 years. The management was very easy to work with. Working the holidays with customers that would return every year.

    Cons

    The organization sometimes was not very well done. Not getting a any benefits or raises for over two years. Working with the new chef was tough because he was not very receptive to ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better involved with kitchen staff.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and company to work for. I am relatively happy with my salary but do think an increase should be in effect soon. The job keeps me busy which I love.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to keep up with the workload as I run the department by myself. I like a challenge but others may not like that so much.
