    I have been working at Brinker full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Casual dress - flip flops, shorts, tank tops are normal
    Food/beverage connection - 100% discount at chili's, 50% at Maggiano's; there's always food around; company events often include margaritas, beer, etc.
    Work/life - flexible hours; often see kids or dogs in office; on-campus gym
    Relationship-oriented - collaboration culture; building relationships is crucial to success; CEO Doug Brooks sets great example, knows literally every employees' name

    Cons

    Public company - mood of company is tied to performance; more pressure if sales are down
    Food connection - "The Brinker 20" is real
    Large company - culture sometimes feels small, but usually hierarchical and slow in making decisions because have to check off and include everybody
    Inconsistent leadership examples - Maggiano's president has great personality and very personable, Chili's president is dry, not approachable, intimidating

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep culture and fun going even if sales are down
    Find ways to get decisions made more quickly
