    I have been working at P.F. Chang's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I would say that this is a good place to work. It has a good staff, and it functions well in most ways.

    Cons

    No automatic gratuity is added to checks of large parties, this can make it difficult when a 20 top comes in and doesn't tip well.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to corporate about possibly adding automatic gratuity to bills of large parties again, this makes working better and easier for everyone at the workplace.

    Don't get to build much of a relationship with the back of the house. Can be stressful at times.

    Assign managers to different sections of the restaurant for the night, instead of all of them being all over the place. (from cooking, to on the floor, etc.
