    Pros

    People are nice and try to be helpful.

    Cons

    Bad benefits, small salaries, old school mentality, no clear paths for promotion or advancement. They hold on to ineffective people due to loyalty. There is a do minimum possible mentality. Everyone is frustrated and upset all the time the environment is extremely negative.

    Advice to Management

    Hire smarter and younger people to change the mentality and corporate environment. Until you can wear jeans on Fridays, have some fun and room for advancement you will never get A players. Smart people work with smart people ...

  2. Tavistock needs to make $ for the investors.

    Pros

    The chefs made an effort everyday to make a nice staff meal. The Exec. Chef, CDC and Sous were very qualified and great to work with. The foh staff were also great and very polite, even when the restaurant was slammed.

    Cons

    Low pay. The line cooks were mostly Mexican/Hispanic. Although we got along great because of my Spanish speaking ability, I don't enjoy working in such kitchens because of the "La Raza" effect. Almost all of them are hacks imo. Don't get me wrong, they are great short order cooks but not restaurant material. Why does Tavistock hire very qualified chefs but also hire hack cooks to execute the food?

    Advice to Management

    Spend money on experienced cooks or culinary graduates.
