    I worked at Brady full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Manager is not over you all day long. Pickers live relatively good.

    Cons

    The fire the people like they are nobody. At least 600 hours to be hire if you came from a staffing agency. The problems are not solved, only jump over them.

    Advice to Management

    You should choose better your workers, and your managers too.

    I have been working at Brady full-time

    Pros

    The people within Brady (lower than the top 2 levels) are absolutely fantastic to work with. Generally everyone is great to work with, trying their best, and all working toward making a difference for our customers.

    Cons

    The top 2 levels of Brady don't share the same pros as the rest of the organization. Unclear leadership, mixed with over-promising on bonuses makes for unhappy employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just send out a survey to your employees, actually take the time to listen.

    Pros

    When I first started at Brady it was a great company to work for. Great benefits, management cared about employees. Yearly bonuses.

    Cons

    Management changed several times, jobs were outsourced to other countries like the Philippines and Mexico. Many .American jobs were lost.

    Pros

    You do not get bored and the people you work with are a lot of fun. They also are willing to help each other.

    Cons

    They don't like it when you ask another person working there for help lol. They try to control everything, instead of letting everyone work as a unit for the greater good.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen the reins a little. Let your people breath, they know actually very well what they are doing.

    I have been working at Brady full-time

    Pros

    Working with friendly and smart people. The people in every department that I've encountered are for the most part great at what they do. Many of the middle managers are great about cultivating their employees. Average time-off policy. Great personal growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Lots of instability of upper and middle management personal. Salary not competitive. I once had a promotion delayed almost half a year so that it would line up with merit increase and they were rolled up together a loss to me.

    Advice to Management

    Financially the company seems to be stable, but a look on the inside (employees) is quite frighting. Middle management is leaving at an alarming rate.
