    Pros

    In my time at Brady, I've come to learn about the Brady Values and how they have built the business to what it is today. There is a close knit family type of atmosphere at any location throughout the US. No matter what state you are in, East or Mid-West, you get that all familiar feeling that you're working with good, down to earth people. There have been a few bumps in the road, but the leadership is always strong and you know despite recent setbacks, that we're on the right path to success.

    Cons

    As far as "cons" go, I would say that Brady falls victim to what we normally see in companies, who tend to overlook the value of a long term employee. An employee shouldn't feel like they have to leave Brady in order to get a higher and deserved increase in salary, but this is the case most of the time. I think all corporate companies need to be reminded that you should value the employees you already have and retain them. Those are your most valuable people, who will teach the newcomers about the business and show them by example how the culture can be. Retain your most valued employees Brady!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to be patient. Change takes time. Believe that you have the right people for the job and let them do their job. Less noise is always better and helps get rid of distractions.

    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.
