I have been working at Rock Bottom Restaurants

Pros

Culture was great - good Boulder company
Atmosphere was comfortable and people seemed to genuinely care about each other
Benefits were great - vaca, insurance, 401k, supplemental insurance, flex spending
Coworkers were fun and creative
Beer was free!

Cons

Working for a company for sale is difficult. There were poor choices made at the executive level that affected every aspect of the corp. office in Colorado. They hired too many support people, then laid them off.
Frank Day is not the issue - it was the CEO, CFO, CHR

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stabilize the environment

    I have been working at Rock Bottom Restaurants full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Your co-workers are usually pretty great, management has always been nice and easy to get along with. They understand if you need to change your hours, can't work a shift, etc. pretty much a family setting.

    Cons

    The store managers have very little power over what they're allowed to change. Also bad communication from management to team members. Upper management (corporate management) is very controlling, usually trying to incorporate some trend a year or two late into the menu. They don't do enough marketing for big events happening at the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make communication between mangers and to staff a priority. It's not okay to forget reservations or over book parties.

    I worked at Rock Bottom Restaurants part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Managers are oblivious enough to enable drinking on the job, relatively flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Favoritism is rampant, managers turn a blind eye to the faults of those who are brown-nosers. Management truly does not seem to care about the good of the employee and only care about keeping enough people on the floor to avoid having to do any work themselves, rather than letting able servers make the money they deserve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having gone through more managers than I have fingers in my 4 years of employment, choose your GM & AGM more wisely. The vast majority of managers I worked with were either on a power trip, or hid out in the office to be on their cell phones the whole day.
