    Pros

    Great tasting food, growing company, great locations, comparable pay for management, public company with money to spend, large brand name that is recognized nation wide.

    Cons

    Minimal career advancement opportunities, lack of emphasis on training and development, food cost is through the roof because of an expanded menu, advertisements on the actual printed menu, dated business model

    Advice to Management

    Develop your people. Instead of hiring from the outside, work with your servers, your cooks, your shift leaders, and develop your managers from them. You bring in these outside managers and there is a giant learning curve to get them caught up.

    Pros

    The pay is above average for the industry. There is a self guided promotion system, but you need to take work home with you to study for it. The benefits are good.

    Cons

    You are paid for an 11 hour day, so you are expected to work an 11 hour day. If you work a closing shift and everything is done in 9 hours, you are expected to find 2 more hours of work to do to keep you busy until 3am. It is a self guided promotion system, but it involves a lot of studying, give yourself 1 to 2 hours a day to study at home, after your 11 hour shift, if you would like to advance. It is a great job for someone who lives to work. If you work to live, i would look else where.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the culture that you preach. Employees can be your greatest resource, more should be done to take care of them.
