    Pros

    Overall middle management is upbeat an positive. The restaurant and the patrons are a nice enviornment. Salaries are not bad.

    Cons

    Unethical behavior from the top down. Lack of benefits, lack of compassion, Lack of overall benefits, compensation, and work/ life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. Act with integrity, be transparent and honest. Be respectful of co-workers and employees. Try to be forward thinking, instead of doing the minimum required.

    Pros

    For a waiting gig, this place is pretty busy so the tips are great when not slow. Very professional, scripted table greets...
    Great buddy system, everything is just set up to run SUPER smoothly

    Cons

    Sometimes too systematic - they do it for consistency but saying "fresh, complimentary home made flour tortillas" 100 times a day sometimes gets old.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to scrutinize one employee, make sure you do it to the rest ... fair treatment makes things easier.

    Pros

    Restaurant Managers make this company run. It certainly isn't Corporate Management.

    Cons

    Corporate side of the business runs on complicated, contradicting prodecures. Work done/submitted by employees is never good enough.

    Advice to Management

    Lobby for a new President.
