    Pros

    Nice people to work with. Most people do not have to work evenings. Competitive discount for employees.

    Cons

    Senior management would squeeze blood from a stone with no regard to employee impact. High turnover in HQ in all departments. Low or not competitive salaries at all levels in organization.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying attention to employees and you will have better service & lower turnover. Each time you take more from employees it shows in sales & customer service.

    Pros

    -As close to marketing-driven company in the restaurant industry as you can get -Pays relatively well within marketing function for industry -Good level of talent at the Manager/Director levels -Fast-paced environment -If you're talented, they'll allow you to experience multiple functions in your career path -Good work/life balance

    Cons

    -It's a consumer-driven company with NO understanding of the consumer...no research budget, in-house insights employees, or segmentation/targeting/positioning -No one is willing to speak out against poor decision-making from the executives -Still pays below other industries in the marketing function like Internet and CPG -The fast-paced environment exists because of terrible planning/forecasting/process...we launched things with no business case, no rational thought, no testing and no executional planning...only to have them bomb and get pulled within a week of launch -I was there for a year and we went through 4 CMOs...yes, you read that correctly -Very secretive/shady hiring process for marketing -Some functional silos exist where other functions do almost nothing to help you out or move projects along -No proper performance evaluation process, core values/beliefs, or competencies exist

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul is needed
