    Pros

    Variety in production, friendly coworkers. Opportunity to contribute to events such as the Emmy's.

    Cons

    Advancement is literally laughed off by management. Pay rate is abysmal, even after working there for years. Upper organization is lacking and supervisors are poorly trained. Everyone is treated like they are disposable.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your workers better.

    I have been working at Patina Restaurant Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a paycheck, although not a fair one for the hours put in.

    Cons

    In the 25 years that I have worked in the restaurant business, I have never seen such incompetent management. Management is negative and threatens your job on a daily basis. While they are busy walking around telling you to find someone else when their help is needed. If they do hire a good manager? Don't worry they will let them go sooner rather than later because it makes them look bad.

    Advice to Management

    If you constantly have to hire new employees, that should tell you something. Work on employee retention and treating your employees with respect.
