Current Employee - Quality Manager in Orlando, FL
Current Employee - Quality Manager in Orlando, FL

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

Pros

Great brand of restaurants that make you proud to work for. Lots of fun, smart people to work with. Compensation and benefits were great. My position provide a lot of autonomy and variety.

Cons

Corporate culture a bit to political and focused on a few people rather than everyone like it was in the past. Long hours with no acknowledgement or compensation. Too many people started "leaving" or being layer off unexpectedly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Refocus on your employees and ensure you have sufficient resources to run the business properly.

    Current Employee - Server in Schaumburg, IL

    I have been working at Darden full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love my co workers and schedules are very flexible.

    Cons

    New trial policy of a suggested tip before tax printed on the guests check is reducing server tips by 20%. This means server salary's have dropped by 20%. If they value us they will remove it. Our competitors that put a suggested tip on the check calculate after tax and show 18%,20% and 22% values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have all management staff take a 20% pay cut.
