    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better
    Management needs to hold themselves accountable for issues in the restaurant instead of passing blame onto others
    Don't speak badly about employees to other employees because it will always get back to said employee

    Honestly the gaithersburg location has good management and you make decent money. I've worked at others where management is terrible and I ended up quitting cause I hated it

    I have been working at Bonefish Grill full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    the high volume is a bonus ! The atmosphere and new look

    Cons

    Behind the scenes it's a mess managers treat employees awfull and show favoritism. It's unfair and not rite . Everyone deserves a chance coming from a 11 year veteran being a transfer I have never in my life seen a bonefish ran this badly . Managers undermine employees treat you like your ten and don't listen to concerns . The menu has gone down hill it's not fresh .

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees notice the hard work . Your never productive with your guest like we are you just walk by them . This is not proper management don't take your divorce out on us leave it at the door . It's unprofessional and customers are complaining about manager attitudes . (Why did you break that )! Something a manger has said to employee ! Glass breaks we are not throwing it across the room . There is a way to treat people like humans not slaves . We have been in your titles before . So many great people have left for the way you treat them
