Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Darden full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Organized, well recognized restaurants so you will have a lot of clientele, good benefits and discounts, quality food and drinks, classy and respectable restaurant.

Cons

Poor website for servers to switch shifts, can be very corporate and overly controlling, results driven culture can become stressful,

Advice to Management

Make training an on-going process as the detailed menu and drinks are a lot to take in in a week and a half of training. Ask for more feedback from servers to find solutions or at least get ideas to their problems. Most of the time they actually do want to help and provide creative solutions and not just follow orders like mindless drones.
