    I worked at Carrabba's Italian Grill full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    New leadership is in the right track putting their people before profits. The new changes with the food are on the right track for increasing customer value perception.

    Cons

    Took too long to make the changes and figure out who they want to be as a concept. New leadership seems to understand this and is slowly correcting course.

    Advice to Management

    Hold yourself accountable to your principles and beliefs, the same way you do the hourly employees.

    Pros

    Carrabbas has great food that you'll receive at a wonderful discount as an employee. Depending on the season and location, you can make excellent tips.

    Cons

    Lots of employee drama. Also, it is extremely difficult to get time off.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about the needs and wants of employees to ensure they stay. High turn-over rates frustrate long-term employees.
