    I worked at Tavistock Restaurants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very busy pace working on multiple projects for multiple brands. Each brand is focused on highest level in cuisine and wine. Executive Chefs are exemplary.

    Cons

    Leadership aims for streamlining campaigns, using same strategies, creative and copy for separate brands, whose customer base is just as different. There is more concern for consolidation at the corporate level, as opposed to UX or behavioral data.

    Pros

    The pay is competitive compared to other local Sous Chef jobs. Create daily specials & soups using in house ingredients. Growing company. Work/life balance is decent for managerial position. 2 weeks paid vacation.

    Cons

    Benefits are not great, higher up managers are only concerned with meeting bonus. Bonus structure pay only really benefits GM and Exec Chef. IT department is terrible and cannot adjust simple requests in a timely manner or at all. Promote from within? Have had only 1 sit down to talk about individual performance yet we have weekly group meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge and teach loyal employees so they can feel like they are part of a bigger picture.

    I worked at Tavistock Restaurants full-time

    Pros

    I learned a lot as an employee. The people at the office were very pleasant to be around.

    Cons

    There were people working there that didn't know how to use technology well. It also was a cluster having to deal with upscale and fast casual brands.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your best employees and treat them well. This will help you go far in your endeavors.

    I have been working at Tavistock Restaurants full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great area directors
    Lack of great managers so advancement could be quick

    Cons

    Company is downsizing, kitchens need too much foh involvement which takes away from managing the foh and the customer experience.
    Lack of great managers so you will need to be able to work with some less than desirable tallent
    Benefit package is not good, even worse if you carry a family plan of coverage

    Since working at the company's newer restaurants, I've enjoyed it so far. Although its really unfair to be scheduled only once a week

    I have been working at Tavistock Restaurants part-time

    Pros

    The staff there is very nice and are considerate of providing help to others. It is a cheerful working environment that is also hardworking.

    Cons

    I am a food runner/ busser and the pay does not meet my expectations. Recently they have hired more people and I have only been scheduled once a week, sometimes I am not even scheduled. I also don't enjoy what I do and I would be more comfortable in a different type of work environment.

    Advice to Management

    I do not like leaving a job unfinished because then I will view it as doing nothing at all. I always put maximum effort forward and working with computer files is peaceful to me.

    I have been working at Tavistock Restaurants part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Tavistock restaurant I work at as a Server is adamant about encouraging the sense of a "tribe" (more unique than "team"). I've only been here for a couple months, and as a newbie that makes a new mistake every shift, the staff still has been so helpful. They go out of their way to check on my progress and how I felt at the end of the shift. I'm never ashamed to ask someone how to fix a mistake. An enjoyable "learning experience"

    Cons

    Just like any job inside a restaurant, it can get hectic and stressful

    Pros

    most of the staff was cool and its laid back

    Cons

    fired the guy who comes in one minute late who was a good person and dose good work but keeps the shysters guy who steals his own co workers tips when working parties and steals wine and other stuff from the restaurant. when management was informed nothing was done WTF!!!

    Advice to Management

    DO YOUR JOB! buts its different now its 2015 i think thing have change by now
