    I have been working at The Egg and I Restaurants full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    No nights ever. Decent benefits package. Overall compensation is fair for the work we do. Upper management is very visible and reachable.

    Cons

    Since our acquisition by First Watch, change has been overwhelming at times. It is imperative that managers be able to roll with the changes. Many have not been able to do so and have chosen to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that The Egg and I restaurants are not First Watch Restaurants and the guest expectations are different for us.

    I have been working at The Egg and I Restaurants full-time

    Pros

    Fun environment, Everyone is friends, You love your regulars that come to see you all the time. It is a great place to work. Have been there since we opened.

    Cons

    The only complaint is the kitchen staff. It has only gotten worse. Long ticket times, which means your guests are upset with you because your food is either coming out late, or cold, or not correct. They are getting better, but it would be an amazing experience if everything came out smooth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive vibes. Make sure you are showing your employees that you appreciate them all the time. Dont ever give up!

    I worked at The Egg and I Restaurants part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always busy, decent pay, short hours, early hours, good food

    Cons

    Constant changes to procedure, corporate managers constantly being replaced, menu often changes and loses customers. I've seen people who opened the store go nowhere and be pushed out, even though they were the most competent managers I'd worked for in the company--worked as managers and never got paid as a managers

    Advice to Management

    Respect the employees that built the store
