Life-changing and lots of opportunity for someone single, hard-working and smart

General Manager (Current Employee)

Pros-Amazing food philosophy
-Lots of fun (when you have enough people)
-Promotes from within
-Everything is pretty much figured out for you as far as admin duties, you just need to follow them
-Company is growing so fast there are so many open positions
-VEGAS conference!

Cons-60+ hours a week if you are lucky, and when you are home it is still not over
-No work/life balance unless you are a crew member
-Minimal feedback and seldom praise once you are salary
-No training or solid structure for running your own restaurant, you basically "learn as you go"
-Many changes to procedures for flighty reasons which is labeled "empowerment"
-Path of communication from upper to lower management is foggy
-Big push for "Restaurateur" but no help to get there with removing low performers and recruiting the right people--just a lot of concentration on minute details that are not the concern yet

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management please spend more time talking to your GMs and teams. Seriously, just call your GMs and ask exactly what they need, they will know -- then help! Prioritize and simplify. Don't allow them to do the job of everyone in the restaurant, instead train them to be a better leader. Make sure your top performers are inspired or they will lose hope and walk away.
