I worked at T.G.I. Friday's full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great brand recognition; dedicated to customer service; great menu; a lot of opportunities for growth; and some great market leadership.

Cons

A a General Manager dominated company in terms of incentives; a lot of tenure GM's that probably should go; can't seem to find their footing in terms of is it a restaurant with a bar or a bar with a restaurant; many store closings in market that I live in which have prevented some growth opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be afraid to make some changes in your GMs that are not performing or driving key talent to other stores; support your GMs in building their sales that align with their local competition; keep staple items and allow markets to have items that sell well regionally but may not in other regions.
