When I first began working for this company I was excited about the growth potential and the culture that seemed to exist across the markets. Over a three year period the company has endured a major cultural shift and a complete turnover in leadership. The vision and focus has shifted to a bottom line driven mentality without regard to the effect the extreme pressure has had on it's team members. It is truly unfortunate that the changes made have not been positive for the people that work there and for those that have been passionate about the food, service and culture for so long. The trust has simply diminished and the team members fear for their jobs every day. This has led to poor decisions, a declining morale and a toxic work environment. When people no longer feel protected by their employer and safe at work - business will always take a turn for the worse. In the end - I feel so disappointed in the path the leadership has chosen. I honestly hope that this will change for City BBQ because the food is amazing and there are plenty of wonderful people that work there who deserve to feel safe, valued and happy.
