    I have been working at Landry's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1/2 off most restaurants, on-site gym & cafeteria

    Cons

    Cramped working environment, poor management, little comprehensive procedure implementation, absolutely no evolution or adaptation to better system of management or procedure, heavy favoritism, and a proclevity to levy overbearing workloads on employees who preform well. High turnover for anyone who hasn't been here since the company started.

    Hours are also extremely life-sucking.

    Almost not room to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop running your company and departments like it is the 1950's. Listen to your employees. Work to improve moral. This is more than hosting parties. This is letting your employees feel like they can approach you when there is an issue and letting them see you work towards resolving it.

    Pros

    Big company, really good training and development team in place to give you the tools for a successful career with them or apart.

    Cons

    Micromanaged and penny pinching and tight. Getting blood from a turnip is done daily at certain Landrys concepts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an open mind, never say no, when they ask day yes if it's to help at a neighboring concept or another state take advantage of every opportunity. When your tired stressed and can't take it anymore just remember you will blow the socks of your next job just by applying a fraction of what you learn working at a Landrys concept.

    I worked at Landry's (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, systems in place, knowledgeable management, top salaries in business, achievable bonus structure, unlimited resources, livable benefit plans available

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, prone to being understaffed in managers to operate, low quality of life, long hours, unable to use vacation time, stab in the back mentality of other managers

    Advice to Management

    Focus on staffing to insure the level of service is obtainable, be more people oriented, don't just point out the 5% without acknowledging the other 95.

    I worked at Landry's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty relaxed environment for servers but almost out of default by lack of proper management

    Cons

    VERY greedy corporate structure
    Very frugal when it comes to treating their employees and guests correctly. Food costs were everything. Had to uncharge guests for every single thing, $1 uncharge for extra side of ranch, mayonnaise, blue cheese crumbles, any and every thing. Which is very frustrating for a server on a busy weekend night.

    Did not treat their servers well/fairly.
    -Every restaurant server knows all about sidework, but this corporation takes it to a new level. Would spend hours doing sidewalk after being cut.
    -Had to take out 3% tip share every shift regardless if we had a busser or not. Had to bus our own tables
    -Meal program is a jip, pay $5-10 out our checks every week to still have to pay 50% of our shift meals
    -Corporate structure is very unfair and was often treated disrespectfully by management
    -TOO many menu tests not enough training, high expectations low guidance

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your jobs
