Does Driven Brands offer unlimited time off?

Pros

Business integration is high because it is a small company Salary was not awful at 100k with 10% bonus potential. Time off after 1 year anniversary was decent at 18 days. Before that only 10.

Cons

Work life balance is terrible as the expectation to work long hours with no reward is persistent, Furloughed/fired many people within a week of COVID-19. I personally was furloughed for 6 weeks, had it extended another 6 weeks, and then was let go the day before a scheduled return with no severance. The company is incredibly disorganized. So much so that I was hired to support a team that couldn't even manage their excel documents let alone a data science project. Project support ranged from micro management to nothing at all which made it difficult to feel confident in ones work quality. The meritocracy value is a lie. I read the reviews saying it before taking the job and shrugged it off. Work hard and you will not be rewarded well. Executives make great money, but colleagues who did great work and were promoted after two years saw meager salary increases.

Advice to Management

Give a damn about your people not your bottom line for once. You soon won't have anyone left as soon as they find something better they will jump ship.

What is paid time off like at Driven Brands?

Pros

You are able to work in uptown. Can come across some great co-workers that make working there semi attainable for a period of time.

Cons

If there is anything I would stress, it would be to listen to the reviews!! Most of the new people that come into the company, end up regretting not listening to the reviews that warned them. The overall score alone should be an indicator of how terrible and toxic this company really is. Most of the reviews that you see that are rated high, are most likely members of the HR team, or employees that they have been promoting to write good reviews in exchange for some sort of entry to win swag and or PTO day (was done when I worked there). Everything there is a joke, from executive leadership to HR. You will be given PTO, that you are expected to use in conjunction of making yourself readily available at the drop of a dime. Leadership has been TERRIBLE during the pandemic, and their response to making sure the employees health was prioritized. Furloughs were handled below average, and in general terminations are rarely done in a respectable manner. Undervalued employees who work hard, and prove themselves are rarely promoted or given fair compensation if upper leadership doesn't like them, or if they are it doesn't last long because of that same reason. MOST of the promotions that have come from "Meritocracy" are also a joke as well. Meritocracy is just another word for "you will see a promotion if you or someone in your family has money to donate/invest into the company." The real toxicity of the company, and the reason why so many of upper leadership are the way they are is due to the CEO. Sexist, Ageist, among many other traits that are just the tip of the iceberg. Stay away!

Advice to Management

Get rid of the CEO, as it has created a domino effect on the rest of the company. Stop creating an environment that takes pride in having employees burnout! it's not something to be proud of. The organization as a whole needs to be restructured including HR. If the CEO and HR can start over with a clean blank canvas, there might be hope.
