    Pros

    Professional atmosphere, great food/product, potential for upward movement, bonuses (if still applicable).

    Cons

    Hours, high-intensity stress/pressure, you work weekends and holidays (only two holidays off a year), oftentimes upper-level directors will micro-manage every little detail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow managers an opportunity to move out of the restaurant for career advancement.

    Pros

    Money is consistent and management is understanding.

    Cons

    They don't pay the Trainers to train, so it makes you not want to. The promo's change every 3 months and 2 out of the 4 yearly promotions are a lot more work for a lot less money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the server suggestions. Seriously. Don't ask us for our opinion and never change anything afterwards.
