I worked at Wolfgang Puck Catering

Pros

Great food and elaborate events. You get access to work at events that are very exclusive and for very top level clients. The Chefs are this companies greatest asset as they are very hard working, fair, and very good at what they do. The Chef partners know how to get the job done and though they work mostly in Culinary, have a great sense of business and how to operate a company such as this.

Cons

Employees are treated terrible by top level management. If you are salaried, you are expected to live at work with little compensation. Top management makes it very apparent money is more important than employees and they will fire a manager then rehire 2-3 people a month later because it was a "slow" month.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more on employees as they are the best asset you have. 90% of the employees that work for you are very dissatisfied.

    I have been working at Wolfgang Puck Catering part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Get to be a "fly on the wall" at events for the rich and famous and see things I never would otherwise in my life.

    Cons

    The work is unreliable. It is impossible to budget when you don't know how much work you are going to get from week to week. There is little room for advancement.

    Pros

    Well organized events. Excellent food. Dedicated staff.

    Cons

    The work is often tediious, most of the events take place at night and the work is "On Call" so yo don't always know if there will be any week available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There need to be staff evaluations led by the managers on company time, with advanced training. The comapny needs to promote more butlers to management while doing a better job of promoting from wiithin. There needs to be more positive reinforcement, and mentoring opportunities.
