    Pros

    The best reasons to work at darden is that they provide you with the training that you need before putting you in the field. They are very patient and make sure that you understand things well.

    Cons

    It's hard to balance your life and work there. It feels like most of your time is spent there unless you remember to ask for the time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not the best career for someone starting a family but if your fresh out of college it's good.
