    Pros

    Discounts on food and merchandise. Decent schedule. New offices are much nicer.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, managers at corporate office don't communicate. It seems about politics and "who you know". HR is lacking big time, unapproachable. No career development or promoting from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. A pay increase would be most welcome! Make HR friendlier and more approachable instead of having them act as "the police".

    Pros

    They rarely miss payroll, and the check will probably clear.

    Cons

    The same people who put the company into bankruptcy TWICE are still running the place.

    I worked at Planet Hollywood full-time

    Pros

    Company spirits are somewhat high for the situation

    Cons

    Unorganized. Daily changes to procedures. Everyone seems on edge. Upper management seems confused on a regular basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out your procedure and then teach your employees. Adding on additional steps is the same as adding a band aid to a broken leg. Its not fixing anything.

    I have been working at Planet Hollywood full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent Pay
    Other employees are great to work with
    Great Office location near a mall and lots of restaurants
    Discounts at some locations

    Cons

    No leadership or organization
    Team went from 7 down to 2 people in less than 2 months due to the terrible leadership in the Finance Department
    Open positons are not back filled
    Paychecks sometimes come 1-2 days late
    Executives disagree and argue in front of employees
    There is a general sense of unhappiness in the work environment due to the unnecessary stress placed on employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership is a necessary skill to run a successful business. There are a lot of great resources to develop leadership skills. Please take advantage of them.

    Not the best job I've ever had, but great money!

    Former Employee - Bartender/Server/Trainer in New York, NY

    I worked at Planet Hollywood full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You restaurant gets people in the doors just because its a Planet Hollywood! They are also always in tourist areas, so the ticket prices will always be more that other, non-chain, restaurants. I really liked the management staff that I worked for in NY TIme Square as well. The people were great and I always had a great time.

    Cons

    I hate the stupid ties! Other than that, I can't complain. The only other down side is that if it is not tourist season, the place is DEAD! Work a lot and save up during the busy times when you are pulling in a lot of money and then just go on a vacation or something.
