Pros

A supportive management team and company design that really focuses on its employees stability and happiness on and off the job. You can tell a real care goes into making the work place like a second home.

Cons

In house management can seem a bit overwhelmed at times when on track to meet company quotas which trickles down to the waitstaff causing for a more stressful work environment. I think better care needs to go into choosing team leader who understand thoroughly the art of stress management.

    I worked at Darden full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can bulk up for sumo wrestling tornements in justweeks

    Cons

    Management team of brain washed automatons, Guests are the representation the dark side of EVERY culture. the food is awful, soup and salad is their only life line. The first lady complimented them for creating healthier children options, the kids cup is still the same size its just stouter (and refillable) and the food portions are larger.

    Advice to Management

    shut it all down, sell the buildings, cash out all the stock, and donate the money to Detroit or something more helpful then making the country fat index increase
