    I have been working at David Burke Group part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The name on your resume might look good... for now

    Cons

    Company has NO LOYALTY whatsoever. Business is business, I understand that. But it doesn't matter how long you've been there, how many hoops you had to jump through, how many times you bent over backwards for the good of the brand/company...when they are done with you, they are done with you. They will demote you, replace you, relocate you, fire you without warning or valid reason. This company has had MULTIPLE lawsuits regarded wages and tips not being paid, and many many sexual harassment lawsuits. Some ongoing, many settled out of court. The company was kind of a mess when David Burke was actually a part of it. But he was ousted over a year ago and it's gotten even worse. The current corporate management team will continue to cheapen the brand and run this company into the ground.

    Advice to Management

    1-RESPECT. It's EARNED, not DESERVED.
    It takes a TEAM to run a restaurant and respect goes a LONG WAY! Give it, and you;ll get it.
    2- Get off your phone and pay attention.
    Perception is reality. How can you manage a floor when your face is buried in your phone all the time? Whether it be work related, an email from your mother, or checking your facebook feed. If you expect your employees to not be on their phone, do them a favor and lead by example.
