    I have been working at Fox Restaurant Concepts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My personal experience has been nothing but wonderful. I am learning so much that will help me in the future. Great upper management team that is consistently pushing you to be better. Much love and respect for this company.

    Cons

    I have nothing but great things to say. You can work a lot of hours at some points but it’s is worth it because you are consistently learning and growing.

    I worked at Fox Restaurant Concepts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Culture here is incredible, the food is so genuinely good, it makes selling it fun!

    Cons

    Management takes no ownership for ANYTHING, No loyalty, Communication among managers completely lacking, Promotional opportunities, best sections on floor, best shifts all available for "favorite" employees! Dosnt matter how good you are if your not brown nosing you wont go anywhere! $ is just ok especially in high tourist areas (no suggested gratuity), every single server on the floor deals non tipping tourist, we begged for alteast suggested gratuity on bottom of checks, management promised but never ever delivered (on anything). Massive amounts of side work

    Advice to Management

    Loved my job, opened the Santa Monica location, wish management was more consistent and reliable, maybe consider sticking to the plans you come up with in meetings that way your team is clear on the way things work. ALOT of confusion

    Pros

    Great work life balance. You have access to high achievers in this industry. Unlimited growth potential. Multiple restaurant or brand avenues to explore.

    Cons

    They do promote from within. You may be teamed up with a manager the is VERY young in their process.

    Advice to Management

    Push incentives for continuing education. Continue to evolve the review process.

    Pros

    Pay is as good as you're willing to work for.
    Positive guest experiences lead to a well-known company.
    Fox will let you transfer to different concepts if you move.

    Cons

    Rapid company growth has led to some pretty awful management hires.
    Company is more focused on how they look on paper than actually taking care of the comfort and safety needs of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more attuned to how "leaders" on the floor command respect (or lack of respect) from FOH and BOH employees. Taking a little extra time to find the right fit for management positions will lead to much higher happiness and success for the entire team.
