    Pros

    $$$$ and the guests are loyal. The brand is positive.

    Cons

    Literally work salary managers excessive amount of hours. No quality of life. So for the $$$ they pay you make no $$$. Can't take their word for anything. Many secrets. Store managers aren't aloud to have a voice.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach and keep your word. Stop looking for the bad in people and focus on looking fur the good. Allow your managers to operate the business and stop micro managing and you'll go far.
