    I have been working at Del Frisco's Restaurant Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have an excellent training schedule that definitely highlights the company's vision and sets all server up for success. Thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the company. Family breakfast on weekends and family meals before shifts. Never have to go into a shift hungry. They advance internally as well.

    Cons

    None really. Discount meals used to suck, but they have improved since I left I believe. Some of the management is a little bad because a lot of them were former servers and do not know how to reestablish themselves as managers. This is more of growing pains than bad performance though.

    Pros

    Excellent pay for the work done, opportunities for growth, excellent team members, recognition/reward for good performance, food tastes excellent too

    Cons

    Favoritism, lack of direct involvement from upper management, “family meal” provided but often times is very poor in regards to health.

    Get involved in a more hands on way and set a higher budget for “family meals”.

    Pros

    They care about their employees and their community. They give you every opportunity to succeed and have improved many things for their wait staff in the past few years. If you are ambitious you can make a comfortable living as a wait staff.

    Lots of running around and up and down stairs. Physically tiring, Often times can be very slow and then very busy. Booms and busts of holiday season and summers. Typical other complaints of dealing with sometimes difficult guests and their food.

    Pros

    Beautiful restaurants! Great wine selections.

    Cons

    The leadership and turnover is ridiculous. They beat the hell out of their managers. They are two faced. They think they are elevated and business minded but they believe in ruling with fear and tasks instead of development. Food really isn't that good. Group of piranhas with no culture and values.

    Advice to Management

    Drop your egos
