Pros

--Leadership is trying to cultivate a culture of "fun, excellence, agility, simplicity, and trust", while bringing the company into budgetary alignment in regards to being now 80% franchised
--Every other Friday off

Cons

--Low pay, many layoffs/early retirements
--Very low morale
--No career ladder

Advice to Management

--more transparent communication, and more often
--bring salaries into alignment with San Diego norms
--initiate a Leadership Development program, illuminating career advancement/paths
--drop the "if it isn't broken, don't fix it" mentality. Obsolete is worse than broken. If it's obsolete, fix it. If it takes 10 hours to do here, when other companies can do it in 2, fix it.

    Pros

    You get discounts on food.

    Cons

    This has to be the worst job that I have every worked! It's a very high stressed and demanding job. It doesn't pay enough for the stress that I deal with there. We're always short staffed all the time and the benefits aren't that great!

    Pros

    Good work / life balance, good coworkers.

    Cons

    Company undergoing restructuring due to business model change, lots of uncertainty. Majority of high level executives relatively new and do not value long term employees.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck.
