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

    Pros

    they have anniversary pay depending on your length of employment

    Cons

    too big to take care of personal issues, much favoritism, too much political BS

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to your employees, some things are just never addressed. Our manager is personally friends with her supervisor so when ever anyone complains about her nothing ever gets done..it's a joke.
