    Corporate needs to be a little more involved with day to day at each location, it is like they do not even know what is going on.

    I worked at Culinaire International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    great portal administration for the field managers. Managers salary are fair and competitive

    Cons

    Very poor human resources department. typical organization that doesn't care for their employee. Top executives are manipulated by few smart people, and create very bad politic.

    Advice to Management

    Some of your top executive have been in their position too long and you should do a spring clean up. start with your Humana resources department then your right hand.


  6. Culinaire's culture is a good fit for me.

    I have been working at Culinaire International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to be creative, develop and implement new ideas. The company is large enough to offer growth opportunity but still small enough for your efforts to get noticed.

    Cons

    Since the company operates only a few properties in many different cities, in order to accept a promotion, may have to be willing to relocate; however, most of the locations are places I wouldn't mind living in.


  7. I took a challenging assignment as an excellent opportunity to utilize my entrepreneurial ability.

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

    Pros

    Eventhough our company headquarters is in Dallas, I felt supported at the LAX property.

    Cons

    Since it was the company's only account in California, the growth opportunities were very limited unless one will consider moving to other states where the company's other accounts are located.

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate the senior management's support during my tenure at LAX. I was privileged to work closely with Bill Thompson, President and COO of Culinaire.

    I worked at Culinaire International part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Met and served many amazing people at the George W. Bush Library (Cafe 43) The location I worked at looks GREAT on my resume. The Green Employee app they have is a nice bonus.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites with certain employees. Management picks and chooses who they discipline. Management tries to justify the laziness of certain employees.

    Advice to Management

    When several employees complain about the "supervisor", some as far as going to HR, maybe that would be a clue to investigate that supervisor and not try and target the ones who complained.

    Pros

    Great work environment, worked with mostly career minded professionals. High quality product for food and service. Nice diversity among the staff

    Cons

    Unfortunately there is a lot of pettiness. Most of it is rewarded as opposed to discouraged. Backstabbing is commonplace here

    Advice to Management

    Be fair
