    Pros

    Decent food. Good benefits. Good corporate structure without too much corporate BS. $150 in spending for managers.Very good pos system

    Cons

    Management can leave you in the dark about important issues. occasional corporate red tape. Monthly inventory is an extensive and draining process.

    Advice to Management

    watch the hipocracy. let cooks cook. less plotting, more managing. Treat employees as if they have brains. Train more, discipline less.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    The only thing that is good about working at Cali Cafe is that the compensation was competitive.

    Cons

    The management was awful, they never let you balance work and personal life. They were also lazy and disrespectful.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people so not everyone HAS to come in to work, no one was available to cover shifts. Management was very rude to its workers as well and there was definitely bias as to who they treated better.
