Pros

Comp card/Discounted meals
Free turkey at thanksgiving

Cons

At first, seems very laid back. Then the hammer comes down.
Female employees are allowed to sleep, while Males are scrutinized for even the smallest incident.
Micro-Managing in full force. And as the headline says, its not what you know, but who. One of the senior level managers told me this before they left. It is every bit 100% true with OSI. When you get in, be sure to "buddy-up" with one the of more popular or senior techs. The popular ones always keep their jobs

Advice to Management

Conduct Team Meetings according to Problems, instead of being "nit-picky" and constantly harping on people for non-important matters.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    meet new people, network, great discounts, benefits available, decent/moderate income. Hospitality and customer service are always great skills to aquire.

    Cons

    It's growing wildly but making horrific budget cuts. The managers/kitchen staff are all overworked and burnt out. Holidays are insane, and the restaurant doesn't turn tables well enough to handle the volume.

    Advice to Management

    Take some initiative with the corporate structure for each store to maintain it's intended feel of a privately owned establishment, instead of a "chain." And take a day off! You're all cranky!


  2. "Interesting, laid back, very informal, and fun."

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Very laid back atmosphere. Fun place to work. Great people. Spend money on technology. Trying to improve their operations. Ideas are taken into account (sometimes).

    Cons

    Departments are too siloed. Each department is treated completely different. Lack of communication. Lack of truly caring about what their employees go through to get the job done. At times there are no clue as to what some people do or departments for that matter. Salary is way off base for some.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication, get rid of the poor performers, change up management a bit, get a feel for what employees actually do in their jobs. Fix the job titles and then adjust the salaries accordingly.
