    I have been working at Casual Dining Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A strong internal progression ethos and training plan. A head office who are open to new ideas, external and internal. Pushing and embracing new techniques and technology. Encourages local marketing, putting on the onus in-house on people who know they're area best.

    Cons

    Having working in this industry for many years, for many company's the downsides are the same across the industry.

    Advice to Management

    To higher management. You need to shift your focus from your bonuses to taking care of the people on the front line. Regardless of age, pay the National Living Wage as standard. 18 Yr old are working just as hard at the same job as the 28 Yr olds. Provide balanced shift meals, not just carbohydrates and fats. People need to feel cared for and valued. In return they will care an value you and the company. Happy team... = happy guests = return custom.
