    I worked at Cipriani part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary is great, meet lot of different people, overall great environment to work, great for students and second job, can become full time employee.

    Cons

    Few hours, get to pick your own hours based on first come first served bases each week, not enough advancement opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Management is fair to the workers but can do lot more for the type of high end experience the servers give to the customers.

    Pros

    Their food is okay, but overpriced.

    Cons

    Managers are hired and trained to truly "look to get their employees punished" for lack of a better way to put it, and to micromanage to the extreme. This creates an atmosphere in which employees lie to cover any mistakes, constantly fight, and even treat customers badly because managers are so willing to overlook the customer in order to get into fights with employees. I have worked with 5 different managers who come from the Cipriani company and have worked at multiple locations. There has been A TON of illegal things going on, such as managers taking tips from customers, managers adjusting time sheets to avoid paying employees overtime, managers flat-out lying to cover mistakes, and employees being actually framed in order to get written up. There are also countless - and I cannot stress the word countless enough - cases of Italian employees getting away with, for example, yelling at guests and calling guests names, using foul, profane, and even violent language to describe coworkers and a lot of sexism and an attempt to let Italians get away with illegal activity. It's preposterous. I have worked for multiple other well-established (and more so than Cipriani) companies and the kind of behavior and activity that goes on here just does not fly, first and foremost because much of it is illegal.

    Advice to Management

    Quit doing illegal and unethical things. Quit allowing employees to call each other names, and use racist and misogynistic language. Quit micromanaging. Look it up if you don't know what that means.

    I worked at Cipriani part-time

    Pros

    *Very flexible schedule. You get job offerings a week in advance and you pick what days you want to work.
    *Convenient locations. All locations are close to the train. Locations include Grand Central Terminal, Wall St and 25 Broadway

    Cons

    *Physically tiring. A lot of going up and down stairs in all three locations. Not good if you're older.
    *Hard-work not valued. If you treat the guests well, do everything in a timely fashioned, go the extra mile etc your hard work will not be acknowledged.
    *Lazy workers. Since the events are usually really big there needs to be a lot of servers. This means that a lot of servers will disappear, ignore their tables (forget to pour wine, etc)
    *Shady. Ciprianis has raised pay to attract workers and then lower it back. You also don't technically work directly for Cipriani you work for a "staffing agency" Exquisite Staffing who only provides staffing to Cipriani and is run by people that worked in Cipriani!! Also the majority of workers hired speak English poorly. Hmmm.
