      Pros

      Great support from head office and freedom to run your site how you see fit. Always put their teams first and reward them when doing well.

      Cons

      Very few, as a manager you need to pick up the slack when things aren’t going so well so can be long hours but again lots of support so it’s not long term.

      Pros

      Lots of support and help when needed. Great ethos and togetherness both from head office and ops teams. The team building holidays, prizes and incentives is second to none

      Cons

      Long hours, but I guess that is just in general within hospitality. I struggled to recruit assistant managers and chefs as qe were in a location a bit further put from again city.
