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

    Pros

    Large company that is very well known and spends lots of money to advertise and keep their restaurants in the forefront of peoples minds.

    Cons

    Very long hours that are not equivalent to the compensation package. More concerned about the team members than the are about their managers.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce working hours for management staff.

    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 Management

    Have all management staff take a 20% pay cut.
