    401K, paid time off, bonus plans, family atmosphere, leadership engagement, and continuing education

    Long hours but that comes with management territory

    Pros

    They encourage saving for the future with 401K & company matching a portion of contributions. Plenty of paid time off. You get a restaurant group dining card every month to dine in the other restaurants. The bonus structure structure is engaging. They have a focus on promoting from within the company. They offer ongoing training programs. The owners and directors are hands-on. They do lots of philanthropic work in local communities throughout the year.

    Cons

    To work for Fifth Group you should be proficient in optimizing your off days because your works days tend to be long.

    Pros

    This company knows how to run a hospitality business. I have worked in all kinds of environments in my years in the industry and this is by far the best combination of best practices, entrepreneurship, ownership, effective leadership, accountability, and responsibility I have found, short of running my own business. I am a long time employee and some of the things that stand out for me are: professional environment, recognition, appreciation, opportunity to fulfill goals, comprehensive feedback and development, ability to have a voice in setting the course and problem solving, good benefits like 401k matching, decent health insurance, paid vacation, quarterly bonuses, dining allowance, above average salary compensation.
    The core values that have been set by the leadership in this company help to make this place work. I am able to see most anything I ask for when it comes to what I need to make good decisions and run the business. Great transparency overall. You feel like people care about you and your situation, and are concerned with meeting your personal and professional goals.

    Cons

    At times, like most F&B jobs, the hours can get a little long depending on the week/period. But sometimes that is due to issues that are out of anyone's control, and it would be nice to get some appreciation for those times more often.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a way to compensate for times when managers are working more than usual with either time or money to offset. Cash out or roll-over on unused vacation time would be greatly appreciated.

    I have been working at Fifth Group Restaurants full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They really care about their people. They demonstrate integrity. They do a great job of training and developing people. They are, for sure, the best teachers in the industry--many former employees have gone on to open their own successful businesses. They are structured, but fair. You know what to expect, and they let you know if you are meeting those expectations. Staff and managers alike are great to work with.

    Cons

    Fifth Group Restaurants is definitely not for everyone. People that don't like structure or being challenged won't find them to be a fit. Like everyone, they could focus more on praise and appreciation than on what else needs to be done. That being said, they do a pretty good job of recognizing great people.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to take away some of the administrative responsibilities of managers so that they can focus more on staff and guests.

    I have been working at Fifth Group Restaurants part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    By far the one of the best companies I have ever worked for. Money is great, if you put in the work. Management is also an all star operation.

    Cons

    Some locations require you to pay out of pocket to park, which when you work part time, and pay 25 a week for safe parking it adds up.

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for, especially if you're in the hospitality business. Great people to work with, which makes going to work worth it. Management is understanding and professional.

    Cons

    Dealing with rude customers, but that's bound to happen with any restaurant group from time to time. Other than that, no major negatives.

    Advice to Management

    none
