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

    Pros

    The managers all seemed to really enjoy what they were doing. Was able to make a good amount of money. The video online made it seem like the working culture was very fun and outgoing.

    Cons

    The training process took almost an entire month then a final exam at the end before I was able to begin working. The turnover rate was very high and I believe this was due to the very strict rules of management. If you were 30 seconds late you were written up and spoken to harshly, if this happened three times you were automatically fired no matter how good you were as an employee or what your excuse was for being late.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the employee turnover rate by understanding who so many people left or were fired so quickly.


  2. "Intern, Finance"

    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.
