I have been working at Darden full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Great company. Compensation & Benefits are really good. upper management is really good.

Cons

60 + hour a week. Work/ life is horrible. the restaurant industry is still in the stone age. When it comes to this. It is getting harder and harder to get and keep qualified managers at 60 + hours a week.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Mandatory no more than 50 hours a week. you will keep your manager a lot longer.

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

    Pros

    The company is stable and divers. The company has a lot of growth.

    Cons

    It is very hard to advance in you career. You have to know some one to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people apply for job promotions that want to continue their career advancement. This will help the people in smaller remote cities and they will not get over looked. After all we moved the "little City" to help the company.

    Termination over back door policy

    Former Employee - Manager
    Former Employee - Manager

    I worked at Darden full-time for less than a 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.
