    I have been working at LongHorn Steakhouse part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very casual and laid-back atmosphere
    Attentive management that isn't too intrusive
    Offers benefits, but they are not advertised or explained well

    Cons

    Little regard shown for employee safety-- no procedures in place to protect employees leaving the restaurant, no cameras, etc.
    WAY too much sidework. Usually spend about 25% of my shift performing duties while "cut"-- meaning, I'm essentially earning no money

    Advice to Management

    Create some more interesting/upscale/indulgent menu items-- dessert menu needs serious improvement. Can hardly recommend anything that's currently on it.
    Do more to recognize employee efforts and try not to run your best workers into the ground.

    Pros

    Awesome company to work for pay is good, really get support from corporate office. Low turnover between managers overall a good company to work for.

    Cons

    Managers are expected to work hard which to me isn’t a con it’s just part of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job

    Rigid thought processes. It did not feel as it the next level managers were receptive to ideas unless they came from "corporate" sources.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to everyone in the organization, and seek input from all levels!
