    Negative Outlook

    I worked at T.G.I. Friday's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management and stated culture are positive. Overall good business concept. Recognizable brand with consistent foot traffic. Execution strategies well-stated and clearly laid out.

    Cons

    Inconsistent focus with regard to target audience and goals. Unbalanced work expectation and responsibility with regard to compensation. Very poor work-life balance. Technical support lacking. Very antiquated technological systems.

    Advice to Management

    Choose a brand identification, do it well, and stick with it. It seemed that this company tried to "re-ienvent" itself every 3 or 4 years, but would only half-heartedly execute the plan, and alter course before reasonable evaluation of success could be made.
