Disapproves of CEO

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 Management

I 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 opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Free food/ free coffee. While there is almost no training whatsoever, the work is pretty easy to pick up on. Also it can be exciting if you like fast paced work. My manager is very hard working and she works alongside everybody else, often harder then they are.

    Cons

    It can be very stressful, especially if you've never worked in fast food before. If you can't do mornings, then don't expect enough hours to make a decent paycheck. Management is pretty disorganized. Expect to have your boss call you at 6am and ask you to come in on your days off.

    Advice to Management

    Work on how well the donuts are monitored. Working there, I've noticed every single day that the old fashioned donuts run out before 10am and we get a lot of complaints.
