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.

    Termination over back door policy

    I worked at Darden full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Health benefits, 401K benefits, life insurance

    Cons

    Managers are automatically fired if they leave back door open. But if the offense wasn't caught on camera they can't prove who did it. The wrong manager was fired in this case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a shame to have these policies without having any way to prove guilt or innocence. Unfortunately they've lost some great employees this way. They've also ruined people's professional reputation by wrongly terminating them over this.
