    Pros

    Great working conditions and awesome guests

    Cons

    Long hours, many many tedious programs, micro managed to a serious fault

    Advice to Management

    Just do your job and get a paycheck. Be careful when making suggestions as there are many tedious programs. Keep it simple, take care of employees.

    I worked at Hyde Park Restuarants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Almost none: I guess you get a paycheck? So that's a plus. And you get a lot of experience about how you should not run a business.

    Cons

    I was only employed for a short time before I was terminated. I was brought in to travel and adjust the pastry recipes, so all of the restaurants would be consistent. But after doing a tasting in Sarasota, driving to Michigan, the downtown location, the beach wood location and the Akron location and finding many inconsistencies across the board upper management was not at all interested in my input. They did not seem to care about fixing any problems and instead reduced my job to making birthday cakes for the employees at their corporate office. And I also did weekly tasting with "corporate chefs" for pies to be served at their other concept restaurant, which curiously burnt down for the second time in five years. Before it burnt down it was my responsibility to deliver the pies to chagrin falls without compensation for gas, miles or time driving. They refused to heat the Beachwood kitchen during off hours - when pastry was in the building to prep. The other girl and I had to wear so many layers, several times snow was blowing into the vents. With the hotel indigo opening in that location I hope a lot has changed. We had a cooler down the hall that the health department didn't know about... I could go on but you get it. The place was a disaster. Management was extremely egotiscal and extremely difficult to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe don't treat your hourly employees like plebes and pee ons. Respect goes a long way. Don't hire a pastry chef if you think you are a pastry chef. This is the worst job I have had working ten years in the industry. Thank you for firing me.

    Pros

    the people are fun to work with, free employee dinners every saturday (not hyde park food, but its free), good tip$

    Cons

    employee retention rate would be higher if wages were raised. high expectations for not enough pay. also, corporate doesnt seem like a very friendly, human-centered bunch...

    Advice to Management

    reward the employees you love with raises, and watch your jobs get easier. make it worth it for your employees. remember its a two way street. invest in your employees and make the relationship mutual, and they might take you more seriously.

    Pros

    The people you work with in the restaurant and some of the guests. If you are able to relocate, advancement is easily attained.

    Cons

    Upper management tends to focus on who to blame for issues and not how to solve the problems together - often creating a frustrating and negative work environment

    Pros

    Friendly staff, everyone is like a family. Hours are overall pretty good if you like/want to work 15-25 hours weekly. Weekdays are relaxing.

    Cons

    Usually someone needs to work holidays, but thats a given in the restaurant industry.

    I worked at Hyde Park Restuarants full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work. Money was inconsistent but it was GOOD when it was good.

    Cons

    Can you believe that they make their servers split tips?! In my interview I was told it was up to me if I wanted to pool tips with a partner or not - yeah right! Too corporate, boring steakhouse menu, nothing innovative whatsoever. Managers only cared about themselves.

    Advice to Management

    How about having your employees backs every once in a while? You always took the guest's side of the story and the punished us financially. Get rid of the partner system, it doesn't work.
