    Pros

    Employees like family, most of the time good management, you can truly grow within the company. Overall Darden is a great company to use as a stepping stone.

    Cons

    None off the top of my head. It's a restaurant. There are going to be bad guests and bad tips, that's part of the business. Overall though there isn't too much

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
