    "weird coporate decisions not working out"

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Umami Restaurant Group part-time

    Pros

    nice coworkers, casual environment, nice manager

    Cons

    extremely pushy with delivery apps they "partner" with that cause long wait times for people dinning in, in theory this makes money but we have no control over how numerous takeout orders suddenly pop up at the same time in multiple apps which either prolongs wait times for an already busy restaurant or even when it's slow indoors but with lots of takeout orders, people wonder what's taking so long when the restaurant's only half full! you will notice some "one menu does not fit all" issues if you work here some layout/structural decisions seems to be made by people who have not measured the space or thought about people who work here. There's structural changes that no one asked for, design issues that leads to blocked hallways in multiple places

    I worked at Umami Restaurant Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Before the company was sold, the quality of the food was amazing. Loved coming to work, as we were extremely busy. We had pride in our product

    Cons

    Became extremely corporate. They do not care about you, or the customer, or the product. This is a money making business, quality be damned.
