I worked at Darden as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Great hours, relaxed atmosphere, strong collaboration

Cons

Not supportive of individual achievement, not looking for entrepreneurial thinking. Somewhat of a "punch the clock" mentality, just doing your daily job and getting out of there.

Advice to Management

Push people to challenge more frequently. The atmosphere seems to promote going along with the "as-is" without rocking the boat, so to speak, which may lead to a loss of good ideas.

    I have been working at Darden full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love my co workers and schedules are very flexible.

    Cons

    New trial policy of a suggested tip before tax printed on the guests check is reducing server tips by 20%. This means server salary's have dropped by 20%. If they value us they will remove it. Our competitors that put a suggested tip on the check calculate after tax and show 18%,20% and 22% values.

    Advice to Management

    Have all management staff take a 20% pay cut.
