Approves of CEO

Pros

Fun business to work in. Encourages a family atmosphere. Very casual environment. Easy to achieve balance between work and personal time. For the most part, fair, equitable, friendly environment.

Cons

Way too laid back about standard processes, procedures and guidelines. Technology sucks -- most things were standard in the 1980s. There is rampant favoritism and people who should have been fired years ago are still hanging on. The casual dining industry needs a complete overhaul and Brinker is definitely behind the times. They are trying some new things, but some of those experiments are totally wacky. Woe to the person who speaks up to the crazy talk. If you aren't part of the wacky in-crowd, you may be out.

Advice to Management

Some of the dinosaurs need to step aside, already.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    great fellow employees to work with, we partied all the time and so did the entire team off and on the clock

    Cons

    had to be at work on time and did not have any smoke breaks for the cooks or servers and the managers did not smoke either

    Advice to Management

    don't worry so much, be happy life is too short to get all stressed out over things that do not matter when it is all said and done

    there seemed to be a lot of favoritism, but if I were a manager, I would do the same thing.
