Great place to work, but how long will it last?

Pros

Brinker has a very casual work environment, which makes it fun to work at. Employees are, by and large, nice and hard working people. Multiple office events through out the year where are you are encouraged to get out and have fun with (alcohol included) which is rare nowadays.

Cons

The company direction is in question. We used to own a wide portfolio of restaurant chains and now we're down to just two.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We need less restaurant folks and more business oriented people at the top of the totem poles.

    Pros

    the people and the culture make this company a reat place to work all of the time. Flexibility in roles

    Cons

    When times are tough, unfortunately the restaurant busy suffers and scrambles to stay afloat. That is the case with Brinker

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to the folks that work in the restaurants every day. Try promoting from within and providing career counseling

    Pros

    The company seems to care about their employees, great training and job advancement but you have to work hard. It is great to interact with different people and every day is different.

    Cons

    Quality of life is not a priority. You have to work a lot of hours and are stressed most of the time.
    Your scheduale is at the discretion of your general manager.
     A lot of times your area manager will not listen to your ideas/complaints but just tell your GM that you are complaining.
    Things seem to change frequently. They change for the "better", but then change again a couple months later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more reward and recognition to employees who work hard and are dedicated. Stick with one idea instead of changing things every few months. Don't change more than one major thing at a time. A menu change, computer system change and scheduling change all at the same time is not going to be successful.
