    Pros

    Managers are awesome!!! Always there to help you out when needed and give you freedom as long as guests are happy.

    Cons

    Side work that seems endless, which half doesn't get done because nobody really checks. So if you actually do your side work, you end up doing more than you should.

    Advice to Management

    Personally check that side work is done before employees clock out.

    I have been working at P.F. Chang's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Name is considered as upscale to people you tell you work there.

    Cons

    Everyone was lured in with a small base salary and potential for big bonuses. But now bonuses non existent. Bought out by Centerbridge in May 2012. Have been cutting salaries and bonuses ever since. Way underpaying their managers and have taken a huge chunk of money out of their pockets. Everyone is trying to abandon ship. Only thing keeping managers there is the economy and lack of other job openings. Operating partners get one more big payout this upcoming February from old bonus program. I'm sure they will be looking right after that. Everyone has loss confidence in upper management, and there is complete lack of ownership by managers, and for good reason. It has come to a point where many of us cannot afford to stay with PF Chang's. What a shame.

    Advice to Management

    If economy gets any better, you will lose lots of talented people. Sure you can get a replacement for less. But you get what you pay for. "A better world"????...I think not.
