I have been working at Planet Hollywood full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Decent Pay
Other employees are great to work with
Great Office location near a mall and lots of restaurants
Discounts at some locations

Cons

No leadership or organization
Team went from 7 down to 2 people in less than 2 months due to the terrible leadership in the Finance Department
Open positons are not back filled
Paychecks sometimes come 1-2 days late
Executives disagree and argue in front of employees
There is a general sense of unhappiness in the work environment due to the unnecessary stress placed on employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leadership is a necessary skill to run a successful business. There are a lot of great resources to develop leadership skills. Please take advantage of them.

    I worked at Planet Hollywood full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You restaurant gets people in the doors just because its a Planet Hollywood! They are also always in tourist areas, so the ticket prices will always be more that other, non-chain, restaurants. I really liked the management staff that I worked for in NY TIme Square as well. The people were great and I always had a great time.

    Cons

    I hate the stupid ties! Other than that, I can't complain. The only other down side is that if it is not tourist season, the place is DEAD! Work a lot and save up during the busy times when you are pulling in a lot of money and then just go on a vacation or something.

    I worked at Planet Hollywood full-time

    Pros

    A job that pays a wage. Good insurance benefits that don't cost an arm and a leg.

    Cons

    disorganized in the extreme, Poor leadership, poor training, boasts the fact that they are a private company only because there is no way they could ever be publicly traded, poor SOP's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a hard look at the people who are in management positions and truly ask yourself if they are suited for that position, and why they are in that position to begin with
