    Pros

    The management and corporate teams truly respect all other team members and would never ask another team member to do something they would not do themselves. Restaurant management is easy access and more than willing to help (within reason).

    Cons

    Not necessarily a fault of BJs, but it is hard to find strong, committed employees. Many of my co-workers only do the bare minimum and the best servers often leave to find work elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites and acknowledge those who truly go above and beyond.
