    I worked at Denny's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Quick promotions and excellent MIT program when put in place and overseen by someone who genuinely cares.

    Cons

    Unfortunately I was promoted to GM and left to fend for myself woth no support from then district manager. Franchise I worked for did some restructuring and people were let go. Really my cons have everything to do with the franchise I worked for and not Dennys so......

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your staff, even the little guys. Don't be surprised when your 80 hour/week work horse leaves for a better opportunity. Nobody deserves to be worked that hard. It was the most trying time in my career and I'm a better manager for it. But not with Dennys.
