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

    Pros

    High quality of the food that is served and the facilities to train are excellent.

    Cons

    Higher levels of management although having high standards are inconsistent in disapline from line staff thru all levels of management. Depending on how well you are liked or what favors you have done for who will determine how fast your career will progress. Some are allowed to break rules or not follow procedure by casting a blind eye on violations of compay policy.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with dignity and respect in a fair and consistent manner.
