    Pros

    Very well established company with good management and leadership. Discount on dining and hotel accommodations. Easy transferability within company. Treated with respect and excellent training. Permanent but flexible scheduling for servers. Monthly performance reviews and rankings allow fast movement up to higher income potential. Professional and personal management at my location.

    Cons

    Incomplete benefits package for hourly tipped employees. Not full medical coverage but more of a supplemental help out. Very high turnover at restaurant level, but this is an industry-wide problem. No idea about possibilities for advancement or promotion. Company goals or vision are not made clear at the restaurant level.

    Advice to Management

    To get more involved in educating all employees about what is going on in the company. Making a clearer vision for the company apparent.

    Pros

    It has a nice atmosphere, the managers not only try but do make things work smoothly, you get a decent amount of hours, they work diligently with trainees, and the pay is pretty decent. All of the staff is over all friendly.

    Cons

    It is a little too uptight and you can usually see it in the employees faces. The other employees are too concerned about the other employees rather than the customers. There is not enough team work involved unless requested by managers.

    Advice to Management

    The managers could speak up a little more with constructive criticism. You need to open up more to the clientele, it seems to me that you don't usually notice the customers are there unless you are called upon and then still have your employees on your mind.

    I enjoyed being a foodrunner/busboy while working for a management staff that takes pride in their work. I appreciate the opportunity and I most certainly would not mind working at the Crab House Restaurant again.

    I have been working at Landry's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Landry's is a great company and does offer many ways to move up within the company. They also allow you to change your hours after being with them for a while.

    Cons

    There can be long hours, but they tell you upfront what is expected. Sometimes you are asked to stay a little later if it is very busy.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being awesome and helping out your staff.

    I have been working at Landry's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at one of the Restaurants, Babin's, has given me the opportunity to improve upon my overall serving skills and allowed me to develop communication and sales skills. I feel that what I have learned at my establishment shall assist me in my degree of Supply Chain Management.

    Cons

    Sometimes the management culture isn't reflective of the vision of the General Manager. Sometimes it's difficult to implement lean six sigma recommendations at the actual restaurant.

    Advice to Management

    Be able to get everyone on the same page and through more team based Management activities in order to promote harmony among the team.
