I worked at T.G.I. Friday's full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great brand recognition; dedicated to customer service; great menu; a lot of opportunities for growth; and some great market leadership.

Cons

A a General Manager dominated company in terms of incentives; a lot of tenure GM's that probably should go; can't seem to find their footing in terms of is it a restaurant with a bar or a bar with a restaurant; many store closings in market that I live in which have prevented some growth opportunities.

Advice to Management

Don't be afraid to make some changes in your GMs that are not performing or driving key talent to other stores; support your GMs in building their sales that align with their local competition; keep staple items and allow markets to have items that sell well regionally but may not in other regions.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at T.G.I. Friday's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very few of the other workers are professional and respectful.

    Cons

    Management has no official training or people skills. Back of house kitchen staff are unprofessional, disrespectful and degrading to women... since all are mostly men with low morals and character.

    Advice to Management

    Train management to manage people and build morale instead of degrading co-workers and take action on threats and verbal abuse from staff instead of having a "cheaper to keep 'em" attitude.
