I have been working at Landry's full-time

Pros

They offer lots of opportunity for transfer and upward mobility, and they have very specific systems in place for managing costs, reporting information. If you prefer to have very clear cut expectations of the job responsibilities this is the place to go.

Cons

There is little room for entrepreneurial managers at Landry's. They are a large publicly traded company that prescribes methods of dealing with situations, is big on corporate control, and has little tolerance for interpretation of their guidelines. The focus is on profits and share value, so if you have a desire to work with excellent ingredients, or participate in a business that values excellence in service, this is not the company to work for. There are food and service standards, but they are just good enough to keep them in business, and limit customer complaints.

    I have been working at Landry's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you don't want to have a home life then this company is for you!!! You get to share your tips with the CEO, on a daily basis!

    Cons

    They cheat employees and their guests. They really don't sell you what the menu reads. I can get better food from Aldi's. it was once a superior restaurant then Landrys bought it out. Everything is now canned and frozen. They say you are eating filet sandwiches at the bar but it is really top round choice beef. They use the cheapest products available. They know that their products are inferior but they really don't care. Don't bother writing a complaint to corporate because they do not read it. They really don't care.

    Pros

    A stepping stone. Tillman does a good job of sucking money out of his restaurants, and souls out of his employees.

    Cons

    Negative culture from the top down. Treat employees as expendable commodities. Benefits are a joke. Positive re enforcement not in their vocabulary. Corporate decisions made in a vacuum- complete disconnect from customers and employees. Managers are constantly under pressure from supervisors. Ridiculous obsession with selling their buy in rewards card to customers, seems to be the only metric they care about.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to improve products or services, listen to your customers. If you want to improve operations, listen to your employees on the ground. Of course, in order to do so you'll first have to pull your heads out of your own asses, so start with that.
