    Pros

    - High check averages (good for servers)

    Cons

    - Extremely high expectations that cannot always be delivered
    - Fast-paced, and very stressful during peak hours or when under-staffed
    - High management relocation, hard to develop a strong relationship
    - If you have lazy coworkers, there is a lot of slack to pick up
    - Multiple managers giving conflicting directions
    - Constantly changing menu and promotions, hard to keep up with
    - Dealing with drunk/belligerent guests
    - If the manager doesn't like you, your schedule can be undesirable
    - No longer add gratuity to large parties (as of 3/2013)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a system to evaluate your best employees, recognize them, and offer more ways to develop hourly employees into management.

    Keep employees accountable, don't keep around low performers.
