    I have been working at Darden full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay is standard and tips are pretty good.
    There is protocol to protect you from managerial abuse (theoretically).
    All the benefits of a large corporation.
    There is opportunity for upward mobility.

    Cons

    Typical issues of a restaurant - management is not always as professional in their interaction with staff even though it's better than many places.
    Lower prices make for lower tips as compared to a concept with a higher price point.
    For some - no bussers means a LOT of extra running around.
    Getting a raise may be symbolic at best.
