Cut throat management

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
Dayton, OH

ProsGreat staff in most locations, some that have worked for the company for decades. Salary is comparable. Hours are typical for restaurant management. Good training programs. The customer base is great.

ConsManagement is very clique-ish both with staff and with other management. It is impossible to climb a career ladder with this company without becoming part of a clique.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company loses good people because the management cliques are so cut throat.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
