    The company has plenty of room for growth, but depending on your position, it may take a while.

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

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule. However, long work hours with unrewarding pay.

    Cons

    Company needs come first always. Employees can feel unappreciated at times. Especially if they are unable to pay their bills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more hiring from within. You have some great employees and would probably benefit from progressing them instead of leaving them in the same position for years at a time in such a fast paced environment.
