Dbrand is a well known company, those who choose to work with this company; rest assured that you will have a steady employment opportunities. It is a good environment to work with. Great and helpful colleague.
It could be difficult to advance and challenging to move up the ladder due to small company size
It's an amazing feeling to be a part of a company that is admired and envied by it's peers.There are challenges and some tight deadlines to stay ahead of the industry's pace, but this just drives the energy and creativity. The payoff is a rewarding sense of accomplishment - seeing the impact of your (and the company's) contributions in near real-time.dbrand thrives on creating experiences for customers and fans, and then challenging ourselves to be more interesting, more remarkable, and to get bigger reactions. It's what happens above and beyond the product and delivery that make working here unlike anywhere else.
- strong culture, transparency, ability to contribute and grow
- quick deadlines to catch small windows of opportunity
You walk into the building on your first day and you think that the workplace is amazing; everything seems to be running smoothly, everybody seems to be nice, the work seems like a good balance. Give it about 3 months, after that things start going downhill. You will start getting more and more responsibilities without any extra compensation, and if you make a mistake they make it seem like the end of the world. The owner and CEO is known to come down and scream in employees faces, or say entirely inappropriate things to employees upon making mistakes. You are made to feel like you have to work ridiculous hours once you have any bit of responsibility at the company, sometimes going past 18-20 hours in one shift. The managers tend to favour family over current employees, and even terminating employees for family members to replace them. If you end up being terminated and you think that it is done there, think again. They will try to find hours that you "owe them" and then all of a sudden any small bit of severance you are given seems to just disappear.
Extremely long hours, Disproportionate compensation, No possibilities for advancement, Underpaying for the amount of time/work expected
Even as a senior employee I feel no job security. Raises are non-existent, and a question about fair pay is responded with market averages and percentages when they claim to be number one in their industry. A percentage of a small number is a small number. They act amicable but in reality they are just another profit driven corporation trying to squeeze every penny out of their employees for the 'culture'. You are a robot in name and n practice. I have seen many people go above and beyond for the promise of 'high growth' to simply be cast aside due to managers and those with influence making personal promises and commitments to family and friends while ousting former employees without cause. If you need employment terribly this is a good avenue, but long term employment is definitely not recommended. Imagine being asked to come in less than twelve hours after your last shift in order to personally cater to the CEO of your company with non work related activities.
Unrealistic expectations without proper compensation. No job security.

If you are someone who can be complacent or intimidated by challenges, this is not the place for you. However, my time at dbrand has been nothing short of an amazing ride. If you are someone that thrives in a fast-paced environment, dbrand creates a culture that will accelerate your personal and professional growth. There are always new and exciting challenges to keep you on your toes every single day. The diverse work experience alone has taught me far more than I could have imagined walking into this role. Feedback is a continuous loop in this work environment and opinions are taken seriously. It's extremely refreshing to work at a company where everyone genuinely cares about each other and the work we share as an organization. There will never be one person left behind - you are always working as a team.
IMO this company currently strikes a perfect balance between startup and established company. It still has the growth potential many startups have and is young enough to allow anyone who's motivated to get involved and make a difference. At the same time it's mature enough to have established structure, processes, and guidelines, but is not yet so old as to be bogged down by bureaucracy or long-standing opinions.If I had to pick the one thing that stands out to me the most when working with this company, it's the unique culture and mindset present in my colleagues. It's the kind of culture that aspires you to be involved and grow with every challenge, and the kind of mindset that allows you to be open and candid with anyone across the company, regardless of role, age, or background.Personally I find a lot of smaller things to be grateful for, too. Whenever I hear a friend at another company complain about either one of their colleagues, a project, or a certain "established way of things", I can't help but wonder why they can't "just" be candid with their colleague, ask for guidance from HR or their manager, or openly challenge the status-quo, all of which seem natural and part of the culture here.Needless to say, not everything is perfect either. Expectations are always high, there are still lots of things that need to be improved (especially planning), and many challenges will require putting in some extra time and effort. If you just seek a 9-5 job where you can do your own thing and be done afterwards, this is not it.During my time at dbrand I got to witness tremendous - plus...
High growth potential, fun colleagues, exciting challenges, flexible hours
High expectations, occasional tight deadlines
The size and scale of the business was quite eye opening when first joining, and it has continued that same growth over the past couple of years. At times, this can cause challenges, but the team comes together to figure things out!There is a high attention to detail required from both a product and operational perspective, with quite a few moving pieces always in play. This was a perfect fit for me, as in past companies I have suffered with team members that did not share the same drive for 'getting things right', or getting bored coming in to the same thing every day.If you are one to accept 'good enough', this place may not be the best fit for you. If you strive for excellence and enjoy a new challenge/opportunity every day, this will be a perfect fit.
dynamic environment, high attention to detail & quality, new product opportunities
some long days surrounding major releases
I know what you're thinking: "that title sounds overdramatic!"Maybe it is, in a general sense. For me, it's the honest truth. My life would be in a very different place right now, had I not strolled through the doors of dbrand HQ one evening for a job interview.I don't just mean this in a banal "I'd be spending 1/3rd of my weekday existence in a different room" sense. I mean I'd be on a completely different (and definitely worse) career trajectory, with way fewer notches of experience on my belt, dramatically reduced stake in the success of my company, AND I'd be spending 1/3rd of my weekday existence in a different room... with far less interesting people.Simply put, dbrand provides a work environment where anyone can succeed, thrive, and grow - as long as they've got the grit, determination, and smarts to pull it off.If you consider yourself intelligent, agile, flexible, hardworking and multi-talented, the best work of your life is just an application and an interview away.If you're merely coasting on the length of your resume, or just looking to collect your next paycheque, you won't last a week.Putting this whole weird self-help motivational speaker spiel aside, it's also a ton of fun, as long as you gel with the culture.If I had a time machine I could use to fix all of my past mistakes, I'd make sure to leave intact all of the mistakes that indirectly led to me working at dbrand.

Ability to truly make an impact. It feels like everyone holds themselves accountable. It's a transparent working environment that leaves you feeling energized.dbrand is a growing company that offers constant opportunities to learn and challenge yourself. The hardest part is finding which obstacles to tackle first. The team is talented and well equipped to help as well. It's great being at a company where I can rely on my colleagues. There are no slackers in this group project, and that is a unique selling point now-a-days. The core values are solid. It ensures we keep alignment on tasks, projects, and objectives. The one thing that continues to blow me away, is the standard of communication. External and internal communication continues to be strong. dbrand leverages tech platforms to ensure everyone is in the loop. It's both efficient and effective.
Work Opportunities and Coworkers Performance
HQ currently west of Toronto
Awesome culture, great people, welcoming environment, and unique company. Things are fast-paced and challenging, but there are lots of opportunities for autonomy/self-directed projects and personal growth. Teams are tight-knit and work collaboratively. The company is still at a size where everyone can make a direct impact. Management is transparent and generally easy to deal with. Work is held to a higher standard than other places I've worked at. You can tell that people care a lot about the company and it's a good place to be inspired by others. Have had a great experience working here.
down-to-earth management, team events and lunches, passionate coworkers

It’s a growing company but there’s a lot of aggressiveness and inappropriate treatment of employees. It’s a good work space but it’s unnecessarily hostile but they pretend like it’s a cool work environment.
