Former Employee - Graphic Designer in Los Angeles, CA

I worked at Patina Restaurant Group full-time (less than an year)

Pros

- Working with people who love food and love to present food in tasty ways from menu design to choosing the best chefs.
- Location is just perfect. Library and other wonderful eating establishments close by.
- Being downtown in an artistic district was fantastic.
- Farmers Market fresh produce. Just wonderful.

Cons

- People. Snake in the grass type folks in the marketing department who want one thing, one type of person one day then change their minds not considering the whole picture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Choose people who have a better understanding and vested interest in creating the best service possible. Choose people who care about the company. Choose folks who are good at what they do and have heart!!!!

    I worked at Patina Restaurant Group (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some good chefs. Can't think of any other positives.

    Cons

    Favoritism
    Unqualified senior management that lacks values
    No work/life balance
    They don't promote from within
    No appreciation and respect for managers
    Company is disorganized any its practices are inconsistent with its mission statement. They take advantage of key locations and that's their way of surviving. They claim to be leaders in fine dining and that doesn't reflect on guest experiences. Miserable managers and staff can't make people happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cease to exist, so things can change under different ownership. Society will be better off.
