    The money can be very good. The management is supportive of the staff, for the most part, and easy to get along with. The server incentive programs are very good.

    It can be challenging to wait on the clientele at times. Temporarily experienced a hostile work environment due to managements lack of leadership.

    I worked at Lettuce Entertain You full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The name alone will open doors for you down the road. There is a reason that most of the managers and upper level employees leave Lettuce and open their own operations. Pretty good benefits if you can use them. Great opportunity for networking with people outside of the restaurant business. If you want to open your own operation this is a great place to learn how to do it right.

    Cons

    Okay so it's the restaurant business. Don't expect to have a life. Transferring from one location to another almost impossible. I prefer to refer to it as an internship. You work your butt off and the pay can be almost non-existent unless you are "special". Learn everything you can while you can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I give kudos to the partners for hanging in there for so long however, never forget the staff in the trenches and maybe work a shift once in a while on a Friday or Saturday night at the front door or in the kitchen. Always remain humble.
