I worked at Darden

Pros

A supportive management team and company design that really focuses on its employees stability and happiness on and off the job. You can tell a real care goes into making the work place like a second home.

Cons

In house management can seem a bit overwhelmed at times when on track to meet company quotas which trickles down to the waitstaff causing for a more stressful work environment. I think better care needs to go into choosing team leader who understand thoroughly the art of stress management.
