    Pros

    I'm a server so money is a pro. :) You get what you put in. Prices are going up so checks are getting higher too. Flexible and great management!

    Cons

    Highland Village cocktail section SUCKS, unless you have it on a Saturday night. Business is slowing down a bit and prices went up. I wish we closed at 11 every night. The last hour drags and riff raff comes in.

    I worked at P.F. Chang's part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    After 2 years at Changs, Then multiple restaurants after, I realized how professionally it was run. A great example of how proper training techniques and structure can help upkeep quality.

    Cons

    As mentioned the structure of a lot of its policies helped upkeep quality. They also were far too "corporate". Due to super strict corporate pressure, head chefs, managers, no body had say in how things would operate if corporate had any say in it. Great managers at times would succumb to foolish decisions and command a team to do poor choices solely because corporate asked them too; even when admitting its a horrid idea.

    This lack of room to manage and implement their own styles constantly created tension between staff and Management.

    Also, the constant corporate changes of the menu and styles made it difficult to maintain a constant brand image.
