    I have been working at Perkins full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have nothing good to say about this company. Stay far away from it.

    Cons

    Terrible management, engines are bare quality, you never get a day if and you'll never get a foot in the door.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees, and maybe hire the ones that work their butts off instead of lazy slobs.

    I worked at Perkins full-time

    Pros

    Great environment filled with people who care about their jobs, the families they serve and their colleagues.

    Cons

    Management and strategies are contantly changing. However, this is probably due to constantly changing economic pressures outside of the leadership's control.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the culture of compassion that makes Perkins an outstanding institution. Choose leaders who are likely to stay permanently rather than only for a few years.
