Pros

It was a great learning experience, started serving and promoted to supervisor.

Cons

The management does not always know how to retain and promote good employees. I left because they were making it hard to move forward. But I think it was a personal issue and I'm sure it's not he same with all the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep motivated employees.

    Pros

    it is a high performance company with strong vision for the future. the culture is one that expects strong execution but stays focused on the nature of hospitality

    Cons

    it is a very large organization which makes it possible to slip through the cracks if you don't make a concerted effort to excel progress.

    The restaurant was not very busy near the end of my employment there, leading to less money in tips.

    More work to get more customers in the restaurant.
