    Pros

    If your young and can handle long workload then this is a good start for you. Opportunity for people with low management experience.

    Cons

    Long days, hard to keep employees, having to work like an employee during the rush instead of building and solidifying guest experience.

    Advice to Management

    Be in with upper management

    I worked at Dunkin' Brands (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and compensation package. Good perks (non pun intended). Liked the people. I was allowed the opportunity to be able the lead and develop others to grow

    Cons

    Very poor work life balance and support structure. Franchisor only...cannot operate. Not in the business of operating. Systems and applications are contradictory at times.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to the management team at this time. See the pros and cons above and derive advise from those two fields.

    Pros

    Great balance and flexibility. Good benefits and excellent team of talented and seasoned professionals. If you are looking for a work force that embraces and supports their own-this is it.

    Cons

    Executive leadership is unfortunately killing the golden goose. The wonderful Franchisees will stick it out none the less. Soon the pendulum will swing and balance will return but it will be rocky in regards to opportunities to move up until that happens.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your talented team... they know of what they speak!

    I worked at Dunkin' Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast-paced and fun place to work. Easy to navigate across departments/teams. Nice perks including half day Fridays (year-round), free coffee and ice cream.

    Cons

    Very, very lean company. They are focused too much on saving money at the expense of employees' happiness and workload.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology and systems that will make your employees' jobs easier, and work with human resources to outline clear plans for advancement (within the company) for all employees.
