Pros

The people you work with. Upper management seems to have some common sense and changes with the times. Promote from within consistently.

Cons

Compensation has become an issue recently. Bonus money has been cut to almost nothing. Benefits are not what they used to be. Constant pressure to meet unrealistic expectations.

Advice to Management

You talk about work/life balance, but don't allow for one. Live up to what you talk about!

  1. Olive Garden is a great place to work if you're going to college

    Pros

    I have great managers who are willing to work around my school schedule. I make better money than most of my friends who serve at other restaurants and they have to do a lot more sidework. They also train you to build a rapport with your guests instead of "turn & burn" like many restaurants. They also actually listen to their employees and are willing to compromise/make changes.

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
