I worked at Tavistock Restaurants full-time for more than a year

Pros

The environment in the restaurant was usually upbeat and exciting; diversity of staff; no two days were alike

Cons

Lack of value placed in long-term employees; promotional opportunities are very limited, especially for women in this organization

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Place a little more value on the people in the trenches. In our unit, people who run the daily operations seem to be ignored until there's a problem. Sometimes feels like middle school with the "us versus them" mentality between Corporate and the rest of the company. You have a great product but you also have to keep your people happy and interested in promoting it.

    Pros

    decent money at night, for a corporation they were pretty nice. Food is really good

    Cons

    working a lunch shift is fast paced and stressful with very little money and you have to pay for parking. intense server training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nice to the lunch servers, they are making very little money for the work and training that is involved. Don't give pop quizes.

    The Worst Restaurant Company

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Tavistock Restaurants

    Pros

    Food, location, tips. However, the few pros are far outweighed by the numerous cons of this company.

    Cons

    All the bad reviews for this company are all accurate. Tavistock is the worst restaurant company. It is so incredibly behind its competition. The standards that have been commonplace at other restaurants for decades are not practiced here. It is the lowest employee morale and everyone wants to quit. Some of the many reasons why:

    — No growth opportunities, no raises, and no promotions.

    — Tyrannical management style. Employees are yelled at and harassed daily.

    — Management not properly trained in dealing with people, employees and customers.

    — Payroll checks regularly shorted; employees have to fight for pay for hours already worked.

    — Two weeks notice not honored; those who quit told to leave immediately without pay.

    — No work-life balance. They want you to be married to your job and are blatantly hostile to employees with families.

    — Excessively high turnover rate. They are constantly advertising for new employees at every level. Positions are unfilled for months so skeleton crews have to do the work of 2 or 3 people with no bump in pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the times and do some research about what every other restaurant company is doing today to retain employees and comply with current labor laws. You need serious updating and overhauling of your systems and upper management training. The word is out about your company and the quality people you need will not even consider you as a serious employment option.
