    Pros

    -Best bosses I've ever had. Always made sure you knew what you were doing.
    -Constant updates on your performance, always constructive and in a friendly way
    -Amazing co-workers
    -Discounts are great

    Cons

    -Weekend nights can be hectic and tiring, but that's the restaurants business.
    - usually good team work, every now and then scheduled with an unproductive person

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loved the management at the location I worked at, so much great advice and never let me feel unsure of what I was doing. Always available for questions or to help.

    Not bad for the industry

    Pros

    Socially responsible company.
    No late nights.
    Overall company culture is decent, and the product served is excellent.
    Good benefit package.

    Cons

    While no late nights, some very early mornings.
    Advancement opportunities limited.
    Very little operational support.
    No real training program to speak of, as a new manager there is much you just need to figure out.
    Work life balance can be a challenger, with long hours and weekends and holidays required (this is pretty much the industry norm).
    Senior management can at times undermines store level managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in a real training program, set up new managers for success.
    Invest in professional development for existing managers.
    Work through your store managers, not around them.
