Situations can be blown out of proportion
Training is sometimes a hassle and sometimes difficult to enter training classes

    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

    Require gratuity on all checks past 9pm.
