    Pros

    Brady has many great employees and a relaxed atmosphere. There are many opportunities to work as part of a cross functional team on specific projects.

    Cons

    The executive team seems to lack the discipline and focus that they expect from their employees. Brady seems to change their strategy every couple years. Many employee benefits have been cut over the years to control costs.

    Pros

    Not that many good reasons left anymore.....

    Cons

    No bonus for two years in a row, raises that are not even competitive in the workforce- 1% and 2%, our insurance goes up more than that every year. They ended the 10 year dinner, took out the plants in the building, it's like a dungeon. They wonder why everyone is leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees again.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    I have been promoted 2 times in 2 years at Brady. It's place that rewards people for hard work and dedication.

    Cons

    Nothing is perfect and neither is Brady. The important thing is that leadership cares and is working hard to make improvements everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is currently making tough choices that are long over-due. Keep up the hard work, but don't forget the people that are executing the strategies.

    Pros

    The casual work environment. Work-life balance is OK. Air conditioned plants. The 401K matching program is among the best.

    Cons

    Brady has had some very bad years mostly due to poor upper management decisions. Poor upper management includes the board. We pay VP's to write simple childish business plans for the employees to follow; The plans are laughable. No one below the director level buys into any of it. Long term employees, the ones that made Brady what it was, are treated poorly with below market raises. The new hires seem to be hired for the short term, It almost seems that the company is trying to fail. The streamlined systems don't work and only add more work downstream. There is no value to HR or their systems that have been put in place. Training funds are cut every year.

    Advice to Management

    Start clearing house at the top. Until the clearing occurs the company will continue to sink. Listen to the employees. The CEO has been here for ~1/2 year, I hope he can see though the BS.,
