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

Pros

Very flexible schedule. However, long work hours with unrewarding pay.

Cons

Company needs come first always. Employees can feel unappreciated at times. Especially if they are unable to pay their bills.

Advice to Management

Do more hiring from within. You have some great employees and would probably benefit from progressing them instead of leaving them in the same position for years at a time in such a fast paced environment.

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

    Pros

    Great brands, a culture of "being of service," generally warm and friendly people who want to do what's best for the guest, a lovely RSC, great training programs, size, breadth and resources of a big company.

    Cons

    Hierarchial, slow decision making, distant leaders, lack of a winning strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Be visible. Try inspiring others. Recognize and reward the little stuff more. Have more fun. Communicate a strategy (or develop it, if there isn't one).
