El Vez, Server (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAOctober 17, 2017
GREAT company to work for. Company wide benefits and easy relocation options if desired. When put in time, it is easy to move up from being a server into a salaried position. Especially in Philadelphia. Great people. Wonderful management and overall experience.

Working at meseum cafeteria
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PADecember 2, 2016
A typical day at work was typical, prep to open the cafeteria handling usual and new customers. I learn how to work under pressure, but most important to take my time at doing my job. My co-workers were nice, and friendly. The hardest part about the job was dealing with certain bosses and shift managers. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with people who had the same mind set as you .
Pros
free lunches
Cons
short breaks, healthcare

Work Harder, Not Smarter
Manager (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 20, 2013
A typical day includes reviewing your tasks for the day/week and prioritizing which will have the most impact first, attending meeting to coordinate these goals, and reporting the relevant information to executives while maintaining the operations of the company. You learn the diverse management styles of upper management and how to cater to each while completing your goals. I've learned the company lives in the now and has little talent for planning which causes employees to work longer hours to complete tasks which could have been completed in less time with better coordination and management buy in.

The majority of the employees truly care about the hospitality experience and want to grow within the company. The most difficult part of the job is balancing life and work with the expectation being work always comes before life. Many employees come in on days off and a typical work week is always more than 50 hours. The best part of the job is witnessing and tasting terrific products service that the company produces, having a more relaxed albeit more nerve wracking work environment, and getting to experience the rapid growth of a successful restaurant company.
Pros
free food, preferential treatment when dining out
Cons
long hours, stressful environment
