    I worked at Darden full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Got to eat at a discount. Warm in the winter, cool in the summer. Customers were expecting to spend some serious money

    Cons

    No management structure. Instead of a general manager, there are at least four managers plus a managing partner. Any of the managers could over rule the other.

    Advice to Management

    Have a clear manager that actually knows how to run a restaurant
