Bad workplace environment

Marketing Manager (Current Employee)

Pros-Great brand and prestige in the Northeast
-Good products and reputation amongst consumers in local markets, but the brand is misunderstood nationally
-Great access to tickets to sporting events

Cons-Owned by VC companies, and they come first, so don't expect high compensation in terms of salary and bonuses.
-Revolving door of management, with little continuity of leadership
-A corporate culture that thrives on the using the fear of being fired, especially at the middle management level, to compensate for a lack of other types of compensation
-Career advancement only happens at the Executive level, so don't expect career advancement unless you are a Director or above...

Advice to Senior ManagementI worked at Dunkin' Brands for many years, and my overall take is that the compensation is sub-par to the industry, your work life balance is completely out of whack when you work for the company, and the only motivation that is promoted there is to make as much money as you can for VC firms. If I were in DB's Sr. Management team, I would focus on changing the corporate culture into fostering some long term talent, rather than reaping whatever you can in the present.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
