    Pros

    When things are running smoothly, you are set up for success and actually have a very good time while working. The company has some good employee-first programs and I think you could work for a worse company without trying very hard. My experience with management is that they generally will go out of their way to help you when you are swamped at work. Corporate office sends out annual surveys to gauge how employees feel about the company and the individual store though I have not noticed sweeping changes from these surveys. There is also an opportunity to cross train and gain a few more skills in a restaurant setting but these are based on the opinions of management and management always has their favorites.

    Cons

    It's a restaurant, things don't go as planned all the time and sometimes partners or superiors aren't in the greatest of moods.
