    Pros

    Servers make good money because people usually buy dessert. Overall good company to be a part of, there is upward mobility if you are interested in a career but be prepared for it to take a very long time

    Cons

    Schedule was never consistent, so I couldn't ever plan out other things in my life more than a week in advance. Management was condescending quite often

    Advice to Management

    Don't promise people promotions they won't actually see for 6 months.

    I have been working at Cheesecake Factory part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They are willing to work around your schedule.

    Cons

    The company does not care about you, to them you are just replaceable, but yet try to act as though you are its "greatest asset." They do not have your back in situations dealing with guests, and let guests walk all over the employee to please the guest.

    Advice to Management

    Stick up for your lower level employees.
