    Pros

    The food perks, restaurant discounts, location of restaurants, resume booster, the food

    Cons

    no communication, lack of effective leadership, lack of teamwork (at headquarters), favoritism

    Advice to Management

    work on communicating changes to employees. Most specifically, leadership should work on sharing the vision to its employees. Higher for skills sets, not favoritism

    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 Management

    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.

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

    Remember how hard your employees work for you.
