    I have loved working at Brady, great culture!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    Great first corporate experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

    ConsThis 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great people and career opportunity

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsTerrific 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.

    ConsSometimes 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 Senior ManagementConsistent 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.

    On the Verge of Reinventing Itself.

    Marketing Professional (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsYou’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.

    ConsParticipating 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 Senior ManagementNow 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.
