    Pros

    Work-life balance is really good. People are work are very nice and easy to get along with. Comp-time off is allowed.

    Cons

    Training is not very elaborate. But one can get resources for self-training. Company likes to fill positions from within first, so great promotion opportunities if one is willing to pursue.

    Pros

    * Everyone is extremely helpful and friendly, a true open-door policy
    * Lot of opportunity to move around and upward in the company, great place to gain a variety of experience

    Cons

    * Low employee morale right now due to the number of changes that have occurred in the last 1.5 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to improve company morale and retain your current employees, it's a shame to see so many people quit.

    Pros

    Highly involved right out of the gate. Work with passionate individuals in a variety of job functions. Open door policy to everyone in upper management.

    Cons

    This is definitely not a "pick up and run with it" environment: there are meetings and procedures, then more meetings to discuss ongoing procedures, which require a couple more meetings to discuss the progress of the procedures developed in the last meeting.

    Pros

    Terrific people, approachable executives, career growth and learnings. Opportunity for international work and working across functions, learning about business principles you'd normally never have exposure to in many offices (lean, 8 step problem solving). Compassionate leadership who want to know employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes slower to evolve practices, traditional benefits package. Could stand to be more innovative with their approach to business and employees and take more risk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistent leadership has advantages and the longer term tenure of senior management can be a plus if their education continues to stay fresh with how business is changing.

    Pros

    You’ll notice a recurring theme in the “Pros” section of reviews about Brady--the people are great. A significant amount of time is spent creating a family-like culture throughout the organization, and it shows. Aside from the great culture, the company has a fierce desire to grow.

    Cons

    Participating in an increasingly commoditized market is nothing short of difficult, and this often withers the creative team down to its core. In my opinion, the only chain holding Brady back from continued success is that of being Risk Averse. Fear not, Brady is merely one spontaneous wager away from the next wave of innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now that F. Jaehnert has stepped down as CEO, don’t be afraid to jump into the darkness with both feet--it’s what you need to accelerate into the future.
