    Pros

    Great people to work with and for. True to their motto "Ladies and gentelmen, serving ladies and gentlemen."

    At the end of the night you still depend on tips, and some people do not know how to properly tip.

    I worked at The Capital Grille

    Pros

    Networking, organized, leadership, recognition, fun, respectful. Very disciplined and consistent management. I learned a lot about being professional and team work environment.

    Cons

    very stuffy work environment, have to use 'capital grille' vocabulary. I was never offered a raise in the two years employed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the management is amazing. I do not have any advice, in fact I learned a lot from them

    Pros

    For the most part, great atmosphere plus awesome food------ of course, the money isn't bad either! Plenty of room to advance within the company and great training.

    Cons

    Can be a bit uptight at times! Understandable considering the high level, but still... I really is unnecessary to take it to such an extreme.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax..... just a little.
