    I have been working at Darden full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Financial security, a very high quality company and in the past pretty good benefits. I have been a part of one of the better performing brands in the company and I think I have a solid track record of positive performance within the organization.

    Cons

    Can be very political, a few of the brands are under performing so the usual panic of the day mentality can be present. It can also at times be tough to disconnect from wont, get away for a vacation and have a life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CHILL OUT - and focus on the emerging, good brands. Also, find some type of quick casual concept, the under 30 crowd is not going to Olive Garden or Red Lobster.
