    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.

    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.

    Pros

    the leadership team in tampa is amazing, the company thoughts are headed in the right direction.

    Cons

    they do not promote bases on their principles and beliefs and therefore what leadership tells you and what actually happens are much different. also they lie to their guest claiming that they serve fresh caught, or made from scratch product when they only "technically" do these things

    Advice to Management

    evaluate your middle management leaders, what do they cover up for the people they believe in and why do they expose others?

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

    Pros

    Was the best place to work it's before a regime change. After culture has been diluted focus on quality has fallen dramatically nothing matters except being profitable.

    Cons

    Quality has bottomed out new executives only focused on asking money people are an after thought

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect to be trained be prepared to work a ton and not be compensated well for your efforts And provide unreasonable results or be let go.
