I have been working at Darden part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

It was a great learning experience, started serving and promoted to supervisor.

Cons

The management does not always know how to retain and promote good employees. I left because they were making it hard to move forward. But I think it was a personal issue and I'm sure it's not he same with all the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep motivated employees.

    Cons

    it is a very large organization which makes it possible to slip through the cracks if you don't make a concerted effort to excel progress.
