Pros

Great people. Great food. Lots of locations means more opportunities for growth.

Cons

Becoming more corperate year after year. They say their responsibilities are the guest, the team members, then the shareholders. This was the case but isn't anymore. They made their money to get through the hard times by taking care of the guest. Once the hard economic times were almost over they reversed this goal. The shareholders are definitly the driving force, and to drive this upper management constantly threatens managers jobs.

Advice to Management

Revert back to taking care of the guest. That's what made you great.

    Pros

    Fun job, GREAT coworkers, and pretty good tips! The management team has supported me and my family every step of the way. They're respectful, helpful, funny - seriously great people.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity for growth. Great "for now" job, but it seems a little too difficult to work your way into management for their level of compensation.

    Advice to Management

    If it were easier or better explained, I would definitely consider working toward management and staying with this company more permanently.
