    Pros

    Benefits.
    Online scheduling and flexibility.
    Very team based.
    Very culture based.

    Cons

    Benefits only for 25+ hours but they do not give enough hours.
    Never seems to be any consistency in management so it's hard to build loyalty between managers and its team.
    Never seem to be enough labor hours to allow more workers to work thus reducing the efficiency of the restaurant.
