Disapproves of CEO

Pros

People are nice and try to be helpful.

Cons

Bad benefits, small salaries, old school mentality, no clear paths for promotion or advancement. They hold on to ineffective people due to loyalty. There is a do minimum possible mentality. Everyone is frustrated and upset all the time the environment is extremely negative.

Advice to Management

Hire smarter and younger people to change the mentality and corporate environment. Until you can wear jeans on Fridays, have some fun and room for advancement you will never get A players. Smart people work with smart people ...

    I worked at Tavistock Restaurants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very busy pace working on multiple projects for multiple brands. Each brand is focused on highest level in cuisine and wine. Executive Chefs are exemplary.

    Cons

    Leadership aims for streamlining campaigns, using same strategies, creative and copy for separate brands, whose customer base is just as different. There is more concern for consolidation at the corporate level, as opposed to UX or behavioral data.


  2. "Comfortable yet demanding"

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    The pay is competitive compared to other local Sous Chef jobs. Create daily specials & soups using in house ingredients. Growing company. Work/life balance is decent for managerial position. 2 weeks paid vacation.

    Cons

    Benefits are not great, higher up managers are only concerned with meeting bonus. Bonus structure pay only really benefits GM and Exec Chef. IT department is terrible and cannot adjust simple requests in a timely manner or at all. Promote from within? Have had only 1 sit down to talk about individual performance yet we have weekly group meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge and teach loyal employees so they can feel like they are part of a bigger picture.
