      Underappreciated and Ignored

      Pros

      -Works well with your hours and availability (mostly).* -401k options for employees over 21 regardless of part time or full time status. *(See 1st Con)

      Cons

      -Due to high turnover and constantly being short-staffed, days off are rarely granted more than the required minimum. -Mistrust from management creates tension between employees (e.g. requiring a doctor's note for when calling out sick for all kitchen staff, accusations of kitchen staff stealing silver as well as food, etc.). --Due to the mistreatment of employees, employee moral is constantly low as nearly every employee "wishes they were anywhere but here." -Management is overreaching and unresponsive to any and all employee grievances. -Pay is abysmal. Wages are not competitive with other food service industries (food prep and line cooks make marginally more than servers). Unless of course you're in upper management, where there seems to be no shortage of raises and bonuses. --On that note, employees, regardless of skill or competency are paid the same. In some situations, even the most helpless employees with nary a couple of brain cells to rub together make nearly twice as much as veteran staff. -High employee turnover rate. With my short time working here, I have seen exactly 15 people quit, unofficially and informally casting blame upon management for their inability to provide competitive wages. I have seen 2 managers quit due to high expectations from corporate with very little incentive.

      Pros

      The hours were flexible, lower-level staff were very friendly. The residents and blue-collar staff were a blast to work with.

      Cons

      The management and pay policies at the company were lacking. Upper management seemed to not connect with lower-level staff. Managers played favorites and held grudges.

      Pros

      best christmas party ever......hookers AND blow !

      Cons

      "loving kindness" is a slogan and nothing more. Corporate management all about promoting itself and handing out bags of money to upper management. How many directors and vice presidents does a company need?
