    I worked at Lettuce Entertain You full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is excellent room for growth within the company. Fantastic benefits, and the chance to work with passionate people.

    Cons

    There is hard work, which in my mind is actually a pro. You get out of this company what you put in.

    I have been working at Lettuce Entertain You full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management does well with putting customers first.

    Cons

    I don't feel apart of the team and they take advantage of the baristas; considering we don't get tipped out, it is not our responsibility to babysit your servers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work
