    I worked at Fogo de Chão Churrascaria (Holding) LLP full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fogo de Chao is best in class in the field of Brazilian Steakhouse Churrascaria restaurants. The company is filled with people who love the concept and are committed to it's success.

    Cons

    They are beginning to lose sight of the authenticity of the original brand, but overall they have great leadership.

    I have been working at Fogo de Chão Churrascaria (Holding) LLP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They are so flexible with scheduling, managers actually incentivize you to go to school, take time with your family. Even tough you work hard and there is a lot of pressure from being a busy restaurant itself, and the managers really take seriously ownership of the this place like it was their own company, you still have a lot of fun while working. The managers work with you side by side(literally). You feel you are working for your parents.

    Cons

    I heard from senior employees who were transferred here, that not all the locations are like these one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep honoring people & you will be successful for years to come.

    Pros

    Overall, a great company to work for. Free delicious food every shift, good money, great team environment. A lot of opportunity for growth if you're willing to work for it.

    Cons

    Nyc I have found to be an exception to the rule for Fogo. Managers never seem to be around, and disrespectful and manipulative when they are around. I can't in good faith recommend this particular store as a good place to work. I've been with the company for several years, and am currently seeking other employment because of my treatment here. I don't want this to steer anyone away from working at other stores. This isnt meant to be an indictment against the company as a whole, only of the management of the New York City location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting like you're the mafia. Start leading.
    Stop talking to your employees like they're children or animals. We are all adults, most of us extremely hard working, and you're losing all your best ones because your treatment makes them miserable. Maybe take a clue from that fact alone that something needs to change.
