    I worked at P.F. Chang's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Loved working with some of the contractors who brought talent to the organization. Occasional free food.

    Cons

    Inefficient middle management and poor project management. The department is getting cleaned out. Contractors are being removed as are others in middle management - a good thing.

    I worked at P.F. Chang's full-time

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for. Great benefits, competitive salary, great "core" staff, and there's a great "family" atmosphere among long-term employees.

    Cons

    Staffing is difficult. Most new staff members are young and irresponsible, and some of those who actually ARE responsible are often overwhelmed by the slack they have to pick up from others.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps be a bit more "picky" when hiring.

  6. Too many corporate changes

    I worked at P.F. Chang's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    consistent business and good coworkers

    Cons

    Corporate changes do not translate well to technical jobs such as server positions. The coupon campaigns designed to bring in customers really hurt how much servers make in tips.

    Advice to Management

    Better include advice from the servers and cooks in management decisions. And be open and honest with employees about why changes are occurring. Too often changes are made that makes our jobs more difficult. These changes are clearly made for budget reasons, which are completely legitimate reasons, but are masked as better solutions to our service strategy, which they clearly are not.
