Pros

--Good support at the National Sales level
--Because most locations are small you are exposed to many different roles/responsibilities
--Salary was acceptable when compared to industry standard

Cons

--Very little respect from Senior Management
--Work life vs. Personal life balance is not respected (in any role)
--Senior management is often very disrespectful of lower level management and front line staff
--Diversity is not valued
--The company as a whole is slow to adopt new technology and some areas are completely resistant.

Advice to Management

--Embrace new technology and the new work style which allows people to work in an environment that best suits them for maximum productivity.
--Don't be afraid of new ideas; there are new methods of training, implementing and fostering new talent and ideas that really are worthwhile.
--TRAINING, TRAINING, TRAINING: increase initial training and make constant training available.
--Review your diversity policies and make them more inclusive.
--VALUE your staff. A little goes a long way to retaining talent rather than dealing with the excessive amount of turnover you currently face.
--Above all else, find a way to review your senior staff's performance in a neutral way to find out the REAL truth about what is happening at each of your properties. What happens at the site and what is reported is most of the time not the same.

    I have been working at Culinaire International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You can make a difference. While many companies have a mile of red tape, Culinaire is more nimble and your entrepreneurship is encouraged. There are many opportunities for supporting the company in other cities as long as you excel at your job. Plenty of room for advancement and opportunity.

    Cons

    Limited growth in several areas of the country unless you are willing to move.

    Advice to Management

    Improve on property level employee recognition, rewards and gatherings. We know there are limited budgets for this but retaining great staff is always something to improve upon.
