    Pros

    Management utilizes a lenient approach that allows hard workers to find their rhythm. The large corporate structure provides opportunities for advancement within the company. Darden heavily relies on internal promotions.

    Cons

    It's a chain restaurant, so the work becomes monotonous at times.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to recognize hard workers, and they must show these hard workers more leniency when it comes to over regulation.
