      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Bonefish Grill full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      They really try to create a positive culture. I've learned and grown so much with this company.

      Cons

      The focus on cutting; costs, options for the guests, labor dollars, everything. It is nearly impossible to maximize customer satisfaction and your own sanity while hitting the targets set by the company.

      Advice to Management

      Focus on the guest. We have for so long gone down the road of "operational excellence" and cost cutting, we are infringing on the guest experience. This will be the company's demise.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Bonefish Grill full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Decent pay. Decent hours. Meet a few good people along the way. Nice complementary meals at all Blooming Brands Restaurants for managers.

      Cons

      If you aren’t white male, you get the short end of the stick. As a manager you will get the worst schedule, all the blame, and no time to spend with your family/ children. Tons of management turnover. Upper management also changes often. Changes and new rollouts happen too often with no clear direction.

      Advice to Management

      Be more involved in your Day to Day operations at stores.

      I worked at Bonefish Grill full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Decent money, if you understand the business and are able to work hard.

      Cons

      Terrible company leadership structure. Bonefish Grill is a company that was built and developed on it's focus on it's own people. Now It's geared directly to shareholders and growing company stock. People are not even a part of the equation anymore. It's sad what Bonefish Grill has become. It used to be run by actual restaurant operators who knew and understood the business. Now the company is run by accountants,...

      Advice to Management

      Stop making operational decisions based on pandering to shareholders. Listen to your people, and remember they are the ones running the business, not you.

      I worked at Bonefish Grill part-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Um... you meet people and serve food. The prices are overly high so potential tips are good. Kitchen is fairly clean.

      Cons

      Management is a joke. They fail on all levels. From training to execution. There is a lot of pious talk but zero follow through

      Advice to Management

      Walk what you talk. Otherwise word are just words.
