I worked at Wolfgang Puck Catering full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Amazing benefits!!!! Considerable compensation. High profile clients.

Cons

A very poor corporate culture. High stress environment. Tons of politics. Little room for growth. The corporate nature of the company stifles any and all creativity. A dying business that's hard to sell.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Embrace your less experienced employees and the different strengths they can bring to the table. Help them grow and develop to bring long term change to the company

    Pros

    Great place for newcomer that want to learn catering banquets style cooking.
    and for those that are in that specific field a good chance to learn more of the catering trade part of it
    -menus and recipes are geared to simplify cooking in different situations with great results.
    -quality is good and consistent,

    Cons

    -Management only cares on meeting the dateline[rather than the quality] and delivering the goods in time sometimes the other 50% depends on the F.O.house service. for the overall impact of the name WP.
    -Stewarding department doesn't really helps that much in delivering the product and setting up the events.- [cooks grow discouraged in time when delivering carts back & for from events].
    -No parking - No decent employee meals and awful restrooms Locker room.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ..[Please put the money in upgrading the employees restrooms, and more healthy food choices for the employees meal, .re-orginize stewarding in order to take full charge in delivering food carts to all events,.cook are there to cook NOT TO DELIVER FOOD CARTS.

    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.
