Not the company it used to be, but there's still time to right the ship.

General Manager (Current Employee) Canton, OH

ProsA lot of dedicated and loyal people at the restaurant and area levels. It's a demanding job, but it will pay the (modest) bills. And the food is high quality.

ConsSteve Davis' fast food mentality has resulted in stagnation, unrealistic performance expectations, and gradual elimination of outings, bonuses, and benefits. Managers are underpaid by industry standards, yet executives wants managers' salaries cut further - which is only possible if experienced, higher-salaried managers leave the company. The various corporate office support departments have become revolving doors too.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop pushing coupons; they discount the brand's value (and fail to bring in new customers). Increase revenue and profit by opening new restaurants, and give your long-term General Managers a chance at promotion.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
