    Loyal

    Assistant General Manager (Current Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    ProsOwnership takes pride in offering good benefits and fostering a positive work environment for all employees top to bottom of the company.

    ConsOwnership and senior management work little towards upholding expectations and defining a vision and set of goals for lower level management to use in direction of hourly staff.

    Advice to Senior Management.

    ConsRidiculous customer demands
    Vague rules
    No employee discount on food

    Leadership Wanted

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    ProsFlexible workplace. Nice, down to earth people.

    ConsOwnership group lacking a clear leader who provides a sense of shared goals. Very little big picture thinking - each division is allowed to "choose their own adventure" with no direction provided from ownership. Lack of training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave a Director's Meeting - set some goals and expectations for each division. Provide a sense of shared goals.
