    Pros

    Great Work/life balance, corporate but always able to put personal touch on things, innovative, proactive and very team driven. Sky's the limit for growth opportunities

    Cons

    Self motivated, coaching and training come within. Very little interaction with the corporate level. Pay is average

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create better training and developmental plans.

    Pros

    The atmosphere is great. Everyone is friendly and i love going to all the different concepts. It is a great place for college students to work and make some money while in school.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any. To some the concepts may be pricey but it is quality food and you get exactly what you pay for, therefore i am completely accepting of the prices.

    Pros

    Smart executives running the training
    great food
    amazing concepts
    flexible schedules

    Cons

    young management
    strict policies
    poor employee discounts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you give respect, you will get it in return. Servers, kitchen staff, ect. need to be treated this way. Management tends to be young and can take advantage of such a role.

    I worked at Fox Restaurant Concepts full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Dinner shifts were always lucrative
    Had the fortune of having an excellent boss
    You will learn a lot and be well groomed for future fine dining opportunities

    Cons

    The training process was extremely thorough but disorganized at times and the management knew it.
    Lunch specials killed tips
    Short staffed at times and working lots and lots of doubles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the training

    Pros

    Young co-workers and managers make for fun atmosphere
    Food is very good and actually fresh
    Pretty flexible hours for college or high school kids
    Training is the best I've ever had in a restaurant; very thorough

    Cons

    The same young co-workers can leave you "babysitting" in the group-service, fast-casual concept of Sauce Pizza & Wine
    VERY POOR PAY - even worse tips since this is setup where you order your food at the cash register and servers bring it out to you
    High employee turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Other full-service concepts can get away with paying less than minimum wage for being tipped employees, it seems like you found a loophole to underpay us when you know people don't tip the same at non-full-service concepts. Love the company and concepts, but I feel like I do just as much work as servers at the other concepts and get paid much less for it.

    Pros

    Great food and concepts , nice discount , My GM was great. Nice corporate structure friendly staff

    Cons

    Upper management liked to micromanage, low pay for certain concept, realize what potential you have in stores and use them

    Hire qualified people and use them
