    I have been working at Morton's Restaurant Group (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great staff. Good salary if scheduled decent amount of shifts. Learning experience.

    Cons

    Micro-management. Lack of respect. Inconsistency and job security. Overstaffed. Abrupt change in shifts with little to no notice. Favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more considerate to the needs of workers. Less micromanaging and more focus on bigger issues within the restaurant. Have greater amount of respect for employees as adults and not as children.

    I worked at Morton's Restaurant Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not many I can recall, I was a bartenders there for years so I had a pretty consistent group of regulars who tipped well. But even they got frustrated after the Landry's purchase and visited less frequently.

    Cons

    Severely declining business, terrible reputation, lowered food quality, raised menu prices, overall reduction of quality and standards, overemphasis on labor control at expense of quality and consistency, managers micro managed staff, managers micromanaged by corporate, horrid customer service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out now and find a real company to work for.

    Short hours with decent money, but not a good place to work for

    I worked at Morton's Restaurant Group part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    With the right regulars, you can make decent money and be out the door in a few hours.

    Cons

    No benefits for servers. Since Landry's took over, the food quality has decreased while the prices remain high. Management consistently over hires and over staffs and servers have to try to survive on three shifts a week.(or less) The politics are absurd. It doesn't matter how good your Yelp reviews are or how many guests request you, unless you consistently suck up to managment, you won't be scheduled and you you won't get tables when you are there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully, this is not nationwide and is simply an issue with my former store (I was with Morton's for almost 8 years), but my only advice to management is fto go jump in a lake

    Minimal hours but competitive compensation make this a great job for a student, or anyone that has obligations during the day.

    Late hours tend to get tiresome and it is nearly impossible to get any time off during the holiday.
