    Pros

    Great Company to work for. Yearly gatherings, monthly meetings, manager cruises etc..

    Cons

    Very long hours. I have been in restaurant management for over 10 years and work 10 hours a week more than anywhere else I have been employed. Also no personal life, must always be doing work on your off days. Your experience is totally dependent on your proprietor

    Advice to Management

    Care about quality of life and your management staffs personal life.
