I worked at Denny's full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good processes in place (test the heck out of everything), decent number of talented employees, solid leadership, great work/life balance, marketing has turned things around in past 2-3 years

Cons

Pay is pretty bad, good amount of silos, no diversity, little training

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You will never attract and retain top-level talent unless you pay more

    I have been working at Denny's full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Challenging, Benefits including bonus', and good employers.

    Cons

    Sometimes a revolving door with employees, and resolving problems with customers can be very stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Praise the people who work under you and always remember that you are only as good as your team.
    Work with the team more to understand the full operation of the business. Never ask someone to do something you would not do yourself. Never judge a persons work ethics. Be compassionate.

    I worked at Denny's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you are an employee (hourly) it is a great place to be. The employees have the ability to contact corporate if they have any problems with management.

    Cons

    If you are management then you are constantly having to defend your actions such as terminating an employee caught three times giving away food. The company has no backbone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because the company lost a very public and embarrassing lawsuit many years ago does not mean you have to let everyone run all over you.
