      I worked at Gordon Ramsay Holdings full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      experience to add to your CV - go there, work for the minimum time to add it to your CV and leave asap possible as your life will never get better over there chance to open and taste amazing bottles of wine - as a sommelier I got to really touch, open and taste amazing wines first-hand experience of high-end restaurants - although poorly managed, the experience you get there is still very important, maybe just for...

      Cons

      poorly paid for the number of hours requested - you save some money only because you do not have time to spend it; I was forced to sign a paper in which I had to declare I had voluntary chosen to work more than 8 hours per day... no social life or time for learning further- usually on your free day you want to sleep a bit longer, clean your place, see a friend, nothing more can be achieved as you are too tired of working...

      Advice to Management

      The time to stop old management styles has come, you should learn to work with people instead of using your position for harassing them because likely you have been harassed your own

      I worked at Gordon Ramsay Holdings full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      some colleagues may be nice, discounts in all restaurants

      Cons

      pay horrible staff food miserable management that takes it on employees at any possible chance you feel worthless everyone talks bad about everyone, even managers no trust whatsoever towards anyone again, pay is really bad restaurant food is bad too so you don't have any good chance to eat proper food

      Advice to Management

      be less complicate and stress people around you less, take responsibility for your actions and for employees actions too because you are a manager and train people in order to not make more mistakes

      Pros

      Staff discounts in all restaurants

      Cons

      The most disorganised hospitality company ever. People at head office don't have an hospitality background and have no idea how to run restaurants. Not recommended.

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England

      I worked at Gordon Ramsay Holdings full-time

      Pros

      Free staff meals (food can be good or bad based on the location) Free uniform (depends on location) Get paid for refering a friend

      Cons

      When it's not busy, many managers will send you home earlier or ask you to not come at work. Employees get paid per hour, so cutting your hours means that at the end of the month you don't have enough money to survive. When it's busy, they often ask you to work extra hours and you will find yourself without free days or without having enough time to sleep and have a decent life.

      I worked at Gordon Ramsay Holdings full-time

      Pros

      There were some really nice people working in the restaurants and support office. 50% food and drink discount is a nice benefit to have and the food is amazing there. When you come to dine with them as an employee the restaurant teams really take care of you, even give some free bubbles on arrival.

      Cons

      There were so many bad negative things about this company I don't even know where to start... 1. The Leadership Team is appalling - there is no leadership, no direction, no long term strategy and no communication. Change is great but when there is a new direction every week it is destructive and confusing. 2. There are no development opportunities, no training, no career paths. You are promoted if the COO likes you....

      Advice to Management

      Don't hire talented people who have great skills and experience and then tell them exactly how you would like them to do things as there is no point in that. The leaders should learn about empowering people, allowing them to be creative and make mistakes sometimes and simply be humans. Don't expect them to be robots working 24/7. If this company is to survive start treating people nice. And I am not talking about big...

      I worked at Gordon Ramsay Holdings full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Good experience in 3 star Michelin Restaurant, being part of the best restaurant, looks good in your CV. I cannot write more pros

      Cons

      Long hours- low pay, no trainings, being treated like dogs, hot headed chef/ managers. Lots of unpaid overtime, big turnover, always understaff

      Advice to Management

      Come down from the sky, you’re still human beings, respect your staff.
