    Pros

    Large company that is very well known and spends lots of money to advertise and keep their restaurants in the forefront of peoples minds.

    Cons

    Very long hours that are not equivalent to the compensation package. More concerned about the team members than the are about their managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce working hours for management staff.
