    Pros

    Everyone is pretty nice for the most part. Table turnover is great so you could make some serious cash on each night.

    Cons

    Tip share is not so fair. In fact, tip share here is not fair at all. The boss has an ego.

    Advice to Management

    No idea. Your training video needs to be updated. I think your menu needs to be updated. People want more meat in the pasta.

    I worked at Bravo Restaurants full-time

    Pros

    Over all friendly co-workers, good food.

    Cons

    They downsize a lot and it will come out of nowhere. Seen it happen twice in the year I was with the company. Out of no where many people don't have jobs
    Can be a bit of a high school bipolar atmosphere. You never know what mood everyone is in and how it will be taken out on others.
    Not a lot of room for growth.
    On the low side of pay for the positions people work.

    Pros

    -Food is pretty good and fairly priced
    -Pretty popular chain, so they tend to be busy (good thing if you work in a tipped position)

    Cons

    -Base pay not very competitive, and the lack of a mandatory tip-out percentage can be detrimental to bus-boys and food runners.
    -Pretty strict dress/appearance code.
    -Chain culture means a lot of idiotic corporate propagandizing... especially in training.
    -"Guests", not "Customers"?? My guests don't typically pay me for my hospitality...stop deluding yourselves.

    Advice to Management

    Get off the high horse. You work as a manager for one link on a massive chain of glorified Olive Gardens.
