Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The menu is great and the people are proffessionals, I would not reccomend working here if you do not know what you are doing.

Cons

I work an average of 60 to 75 hours a week just to finish the paperwork that we are responsible for.

Advice to Management

Don't do it unless you are ready to work a ton of hours. Getting a raise is like asking a stranger if you can borrow his car for a day.... Its just not happening

    I worked at Smith & Wollensky full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good money, beautiful atmosphere, great food

    Cons

    Poor management, loses money for the restaurant

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer to customers. Spend more time marketing your company. And less time drinking on the job.

    Pros

    The only good thing about that place was the staff.

    Cons

    Company shut down location with no notice.

    Advice to Management

    Shame on senior management and company owners for putting 45+ employees out of work without any notice. Not a good feeling for me as a manager.
