    I have been working at Brinker full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have loved my time here at Brinker! It has by far been the best organization to work for and I have been able to grow with the company. They focus on people first, culture and accountability, your wellbeing and that of our guests and communities, and flexibility with work/life balance. I genuinely enjoy coming into work everyday and the people I work with.

    Cons

    Not really a con. We are lean and mighty. Get ready to work hard, but you also get to play hard.
