I made lots of money but had no life because it was consumed by 80 hour work weeks. Sous Chefs were not strong enough to manage while away. Hourly staff was amazing and many were promoted to management.

Pros and Cons
Fantastic Corporate Chef, Monthly and Yearly Bonuses
No work/life balance without great supporting management staff.
