    Pros

    Top national comedians performing every week. Benefits outweigh the cons

    Cons

    Pay and structure. Under paid and appreciated for the amount of work we do, but is just a part time job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More management, the servers who bring in the money get away with anything and everything. Could be much more efficient.

    I worked at Improv Comedy Club part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Close-knit company with understanding management. If you were late, had to leave early, and were a good employee management was quick to accommodate. The actual employees are hit and miss, which is common in the food industry. Many faces didn't last too long but overall there is a good core of people who find it hard to leave.

    Cons

    Though it pays fairly decent for food service, the employees are generally overworked. The large sections of people each employee has to handle causes large hangups elsewhere in the company during a show.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees more like employees than friends, everyone would be better off!

    Former Employee - Event Coordinator in Tampa, FL

    I worked at Improv Comedy Club full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Chance to meet comedians that perform at venue

    Cons

    Cons of this opportunity would be:
    1. Overworked and under paid
    2. Cannot ever get a clear or straight answer from upper management.
    3. Treated as another number who can be replaced at anytime.
    4. The values & morals of the owners are quite questionable.
    5. Required to travel for training but must put all charges on personal credit card and then jump through hoops in order to get reimbursed.
    6. Unfortunate to see men & woman not treated equally in this day and age.
    7. Treated as though you are below the owners and upper management
    8. Lack of clear communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication and treat employees like you would want someone to treat you or your family.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, Free tickets, Good pay, comfortable work environment. Laid back managers that you can respect because you know that they respect you.

    Cons

    The place is kind of dirty sometimes, and you have to deal with drunk customers, people who try to walk out on their bill, and people who get mad when the comedian makes fun of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have none. I think the place is managed well.

    Pros

    Working hard, but making decent money meanwhile. You won't be standing around doing nothing, either you know you will be busy or you will be sent home.

    Cons

    There is practically no room for advancement. Opportunities for professional growth are very limited, hours are long, and of course no benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider investing more time into your employees and they will pay you with respect and hard work. Their lives are just as important as your own.
