    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Local management was good at their job, managing the restaurant. Business is good on the weekend, and allows you to make money if you work hard. Coworkers are hit or miss, but you can always find someone to get some drinks with after.

    Cons

    Company itself doesn't have the best ideas or the most effective way to run a restaurant. They try to implement ideas that result in an overall lack of efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Get feedback from the people who will be pushing and preparing certain promotions or menu items to help see if they are actually advantageous, or if they can be improved.
