I have been working at Darden part-time (less than an year)

Pros

great benefits, flexible scheduling, and a family like environment. They are willing to promote within.

Cons

Tip out was more than usual. There wasn't much tolerance for mistakes

Advice to ManagementAdvice

most of the managers have a great attitude, keep it up! For the others, maybe you should find a job that doesn't deal with people.

    Pros

    good line of communication between stores and corporate office making issues with management or pay a non issue

    Cons

    none to write other than the occasional crappy manager that comes in to try and change the whole dynamic of the store but suck at his or her job and fails to be an effective leader

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step your game up! You guys are there to lead, not to play favorites and check out every new piece of tail that walks through the door

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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