    Pros

    Great work environment. Learn excellent work ethic. Communication is key. Wide spread and large company. Many opportunities to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Such a large company, a lot of competition. Enjoyable fast pace, but long hours. Could be asked to move anywhere in the world.

    Pros

    Reasonable pay. Reasonable benefits for management. Upward mobility potential. Large company to work for. Multiple resources are available for support.

    Cons

    The almighty dollar is king. The company is extremely focused on making money, saving money, and not losing money-which is fine, but at times comes at the expense of their employees and their employees capabilities. This is not a great company to work for if family life is important to you. Too many rod's with carrots at the end of the stick.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees. This company would not be possible without a huge workforce to make it happen. Celebrate them, encourage them, and make them feel wanted.

    Pros

    I worked at a Landry's restaurant in Hawaii. Fun coworkers who were supportive with the training process and encouraging during service.

    Cons

    I wished management responded to their roles with more integrity. The GM of the restaurant showed much favoritism to prize cute female servers on the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Management should review workers based on performance. Shifts need to be allocated based on performance. Managers should support all employees equally.

    Pros

    Consistent tips for food runner and bussers

    Cons

    Hire from the outside to fill positions instead of promoting from within, a lot of work for the amount of money you make. Tips are reported so your checks are very miniscule.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to reward your employees especially after they sacrifice all their holidays for the company. Promote the people who deserve to be instead of leaving people in one role for a long period of time.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, consistent customers, great way to get through college, and great people. Would definitely recommend as a stepping stone job, some folks are even career waiters here.

    Cons

    You cannot ask for certain days off and you will be spending holidays at work. You have to be okay with an opposite schedule than most people with an 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM job.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately, there is some favoritism and discriminatory behavior that takes place here. It is not consistent among all of the staff, most are absolutely wonderful. However, this behavior is apparent with a few individuals. Please take this treatment seriously and know it is greatly affecting the employees.

    Pros

    They are known for developing talented managers.

    Cons

    If you do not fit their mold you will never move up. Do not expect to be appreciated. Upper management still think that they have to manage their rrstaurants with an iron fist...even if the restautant is doing great
