Suggestions for improvement

  • I would enforce a recycling policy. I would allow employees the right to choose vacation time. I would allow certain benefits to team members who have held a significant of time with the company. I would implement scholarships for collegiate team members seeking to further their education.

What I like about the company

Due to the location, Darden Corporate offices are something to keep in mind. With many positions becoming available, there is plenty of room for growth. Handing locations throughout the country, the ability to transfer is also very accommodating. Overall, Darden has been a great environment for those wishing to take on leadership responsibilities.

What I dislike about the company

I don’t particularly like the production and products Darden uses throughout some of their restaurants. The quality is somewhat lowered for a higher profit margin. I also do not agree with their environmental practices. A program should be implemented for the consumption of recyclables.
