Pros

Great food and elaborate events. You get access to work at events that are very exclusive and for very top level clients. The Chefs are this companies greatest asset as they are very hard working, fair, and very good at what they do. The Chef partners know how to get the job done and though they work mostly in Culinary, have a great sense of business and how to operate a company such as this.

Cons

Employees are treated terrible by top level management. If you are salaried, you are expected to live at work with little compensation. Top management makes it very apparent money is more important than employees and they will fire a manager then rehire 2-3 people a month later because it was a "slow" month.

Advice to Management

Focus more on employees as they are the best asset you have. 90% of the employees that work for you are very dissatisfied.

    I worked at Wolfgang Puck Catering full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    High-profile events, great name recognition, getting to work with incredibly talented chefs and cooks.

    Cons

    Upper management consistently showed a complete lack of respect for or concern for anyone below director level. Often more concerned with the bottom line and self-congratulation, higher earning sales opportunities were often taken away from lower level employees by more senior employees. Little to no training or professional development is provided. Mentorship is not a priority, Employee work/life balance is not a priority. Service staff not treated especially well. Limited career advancement prospects above director level.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritizing people over profit would go a long way in ensuring long-term employee satisfaction, retention, and drive to make the company more money.
