Pros

I really can't think of many pros. You get free food. Sometimes your employees show up for work. That's all.

Cons

Horrible culture. Can't get ahead unless you're part of the inner circle, and the only way to do that is to be Hispanic. 10+ hour days, that vary every week. Never the same schedule or same days off. Sometimes you may only have 6 hours between shifts. Pay is way to low to put up with that!

Advice to Management

No point in trying.

    If you are looking to make money and don't care about anything else, this might be the place for you.

    Pros

    Decent pay compared to the other companies in Florida, but employees are systematically undervalued

    Cons

    Too many too list but I will try.
    - The Brazilian conglomerate that runs the company treats its employees like they are still in Brazil
    - Due to over 2/3rds of employees being laid off, the environment is one of constant fear
    - Forget about nights and weekends off. Plan to stay at least 10 hours a day and come in a couple weekends a month
    - Keeping up the appearance of being busy and staying late is more important than your actual work
    - HR is unresponsive
    - Your career goals are not important. You will be moved around to different departments without your input
    - Zero work/life balance
    - Between people quitting and being fired, the door is always revolving
    - High school-like atmosphere in terms of office gossip/rumors

    Advice to Management

    You aren't in Brazil anymore. Treating workers with respect might cut down on your turnover.


  2. Miserable, overworked and underpaid.

    Pros

    The insurance was decent, though a bit expensive. Other than that, not much

    Cons

    If salaried, you will work a minimum of 50 hours a week. They consistently fail to give you your holidays off, nor will they compensate you. Raises are the same way.
    Labor is unrealistically tight, yet they expect you to meet extremely low service times. You can only really do one or the other, based on the guidelines you are given.
    I have worked for many huge companies, but the culture here is the worst! There is no attempt to hide the favor given to certain people. Nor is it a secret that you must be Hispanic to move ahead, at least here in FL.

    Advice to Management

    No point, as it will not be taken seriously anyway.
