    Pros

    Massive company that's easy to transfer within.

    Landry's overhaul included going towards a more fried food path. Lower quality, higher profit.

    Nothing...Landry's is already going to cheapen everything.

    Pros

    Complaints to corporate handled in a timely fashion. We had a manager who was verbally abusive and a sexual harasser. When someone finally complained to upper management, they were there within a day and he was gone by the end of the week.

    Cons

    Food quality has gone down. They use to bring in over 40 species of seafood every day; now, it's just five and everything else is frozen. And they are obsessed with everyone selling Landry's loyalty cards! After I left another employee told me that they wanted you to sell like 5 a day!!!
