I have been working at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery

Pros

They are a leader in their segment of the industry in many parts of the country.
They prefer to promote from within.

Cons

Too reactive instead of proactive, placing too much emphasis on controlling costs on the store level instead of building revenue on the company level through proper maketing. If you work under the wrong manager they don't protect their respected long tenure employees with a proven track record of success and in good standing from being terminated because of false accusations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just because an upper level manager is good at hitting planned financial numbers doesn't mean that they are creating an environment for everyone to succeed under their leadership or managing in a fair and consistent way. It would be a good idea to interview every employee with over 5 years of employmen after separationt, voluntary and involuntary alike. What you learn about "successful" senior managers would surprise you.

    I worked at Perkins Restaurant and Bakery

    Pros

    For the most part it is laid back. It is alright to be late if it is not busy between the time you were supposed to be there and the time you actually get there.

    Cons

    There was no sense of accountability. Management was misinformed and unorganized. Playing favorites and sharing personal information was everyday standard operating procedure.
