Pros

For the most part, great atmosphere plus awesome food------ of course, the money isn't bad either! Plenty of room to advance within the company and great training.

Cons

Can be a bit uptight at times! Understandable considering the high level, but still... I really is unnecessary to take it to such an extreme.

Advice to Management

Relax..... just a little.

    Pros

    Decent food. Access to cheap ingredients. Good dry aging program

    Cons

    Chefs are overworked. There is only 1 exec and 1 sous per kitchen. ABSOLUTELY do NOT believe them when they tell you it is a 55 hour work week!!! It is 65-75 on average with no consistency in your schedule. if you want any sort of work/life balance this is not the place for you

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your chefs like slave labor. Invest in more kitchen management so your chefs can have the quality of life you preach about at Darden U.
