    Pros

    Everything is very organized, everyone is trained professionally so they know what they are doing. Managers care about the employees, and support them. For example if a table leaves without tipping, they will take care of the server. Great family atmosphere! The company ha strict rules, and is based on seniority and that makes the decision making process very fair. One of the best companies to work for!

    Cons

    Long hours and difficult customers to deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Lettuce Entertain You

    Pros

    I've been managed by a variety of managers, and all of them have been great in their own way. Everyone takes the restaurant seriously, but we have a ton of fun, and great relationships with upper management.

    Cons

    As a server, it is hard to move up with the company, unless you want to be a front of house manager.
