    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Patina Restaurant Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Non-seasonal employees receive full health care for nominal charge through the union. Holiday season provides many opportunities to work and make great money. Regular customers (from NBC and other corporate/businesses in building and nearby) comprise a good deal of breakfast and lunch business.

    Cons

    Frustrating conditions: Want servers to perform at fine dining level but don't provide support staff to do so. Attracts many tourists who think it is a cafe or diner and are shocked by prices (and therefore do not order much). Junior management is routinely stressed and either take it out on staff or have difficulty handling issues.

    Advice to Management

    Become clear about direction taking restaurant and follow that direction through so it's consistent.
