Pros

Bonus and profit sharing programs are awesome. Great healthcare plans. Never a dull moment and very fast paced.

Cons

Antiquated ordering and inventory systems. Still doing cost based accounting, which went out of fashion back in the 80's. IT department is hamstrung by the rest of the company. Ancient, ineffective computer systems (still on XP). Revolving door for employees under you. Oh, and if they call in, the marketing manager has to cover the shift because of the no overtime mantra. Most of the time as a marketing manager you may not get to do any marketing, but you sure will gain experience cleaning showers, toilets and running a register. And the micromanagement gets worse by the minute.

Advice to Management

Live the values you espouse. Coach, teach and train marketing managers, don't threaten us. Quit the micromanagement. We don't need the same email sent to us 15 times, we saw it the first time. Let IT be free to innovate to help us at store level. And for goodness sake, get off of cost accounting.

    Pros

    Employees are fun, always something to do....keeps you busy. Pay is decent, not the best and not the worst. Our location has a good GM that leads the team, so the environment is pleasant.

    Cons

    District Managers are very disconnected to managers outside of the GM, some District Managers can be very abusive towards Market Managers and Restaurant Managers, very unapproachable.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the out dated abusive management style and threatening approach. If you coach and show appreciation you will gain loyalty. Take time to speak with the entire team, you will learn much more about how the business runs when you are away.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, company discounts, co-workers were kind and compassionate as well as sincerely helpful in most cases

    Cons

    The "family owned" company is very disconnected as to what their real problems are. For a company that states to incoming personnel that they have a minimal turnover rate they need to reassess that statement. Managers, good ones are NOT a dime a dozen and when not given proper tools they fail

    Advice to Management

    Wake up to what is happening in your company. Hire and fire if they don't work out don't work.. Developing people with sound people skills and good work ethic are the keys to ultimate sucess.
