    Pros

    working with a small team under the same manager was a great experience.

    Cons

    can be hard to work with some managers, look down on the servers, don't have time to listen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make it easy to move within the company, listen to your employees more

    I have been working at CulinArt full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Weekends off and set schedule. As far as anything else there aren't any pros so I am just filling up the 20 word minimum

    Cons

    Lack of communication from General Manager. Doesn't respect what you have to offer as far as time, skills or abilities. Advancements were promised as "promoting from within" only to watch them hire from outside. Always overworked and threatened with your job. Health insurance is slightly better than just a trip the the ER. I have worked there for 6 months and have watched 2 executive chefs and 2 sous chefs get fired for incompetence in higher management. Food quality is stressed in every meeting. "We only use the finest and freshest foods" has been said countless times by countless execs and the GM only to watch pre-cooked and very poor quality food get ordered and served everyday. On top of that food that shouldn't be served to animals is pushed through as fresh...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update your resume...

    I have been working at CulinArt full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Weekends off if you have that type of account. There's not that much good about them. The ppl that have been there for years always complain that there is much better.

    Cons

    Poor management, the only ppl that excel are the ones that are related to management. They really don't know how to talk to people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new supervisors.

    I worked at CulinArt full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked at one of the university accounts that they hold, so my schedule was not the worst that i have ever had.....

    Cons

    Poor system management, lack of caring for employees and managers, executives put their needs before others, no job security, always wondering if you will lose your job no matter how hard you work...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should really give your management a sense of job security. I was an executive level manager for over a year and a half, and no matter how hard, or how much i worked, i always wondered if i was going to lose my job that day. My immediate supervisor always wondered if he was going to lose his job that day ( thats how he started his "good morning"... "Hello and good morning... Well maybe today is the day that they are going to fire me..". not because he wanted to lose his job, but because every single person i worked with wondered if they would be fired that day.

    I have been working at CulinArt

    Pros

    They give you plenty of time off, if you have enough money to withstand the free time go see the world. If not, most likely gonna need a second job.

    Cons

    Lack of raises in the company, and job promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All should retire because they are all from the age of the good old boy era. A lot of nepotism
