    I worked at Planet Hollywood full-time

    Pros

    A job that pays a wage. Good insurance benefits that don't cost an arm and a leg.

    Cons

    disorganized in the extreme, Poor leadership, poor training, boasts the fact that they are a private company only because there is no way they could ever be publicly traded, poor SOP's.

    Advice to Management

    take a hard look at the people who are in management positions and truly ask yourself if they are suited for that position, and why they are in that position to begin with

    Pros

    Discounts on food and merchandise. Decent schedule. New offices are much nicer.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, managers at corporate office don't communicate. It seems about politics and "who you know". HR is lacking big time, unapproachable. No career development or promoting from within.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. A pay increase would be most welcome! Make HR friendlier and more approachable instead of having them act as "the police".
