    I worked at Think Food Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a great company if you desire to go into hospitality or into culinary arts as a manager or chef. Was exposed to many inspiring leaders in these industries and was a great experience to learn how to operate, deal with many personalities from all backgrounds, and how to multitask numerous projects on a daily basis.

    Cons

    There is no life balance, and that is simply the life of a professional chef or manager. If you accept that, that is great. If not, you need to find another career or avenue within the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company is a leader in the culinary world in this country. My advice is to finally break the norm of no life balance within management and find an effective mechanism to allow management to have that life balance.

    Tips are ok during the day but better at night. Great restaurant great food, great culture (in theory) friendly staff.

    Management works you to death if you let them and do not appeciate you. Hopefully this has changed
