    I have been working at Brentwood Industries full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Brentwood offers a challenging and fast-paced work environment with room to grow, both personally and professionally. It has maintained a nice, open, family-owned feel (despite its growth), and the people are great! Very friendly and willing to help. The business continues to expand into new markets that seem to have a lot of potential, and the company is very dedicated and generous to its community, showing that it has strong values.

    Cons

    Compensation is about average for the area, maybe a little on the low end, but the people and the work environment help to make up for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company continues to grow, it is important to maintain strong communication with all employees.

    I have been working at Brentwood Industries full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fair compensation and benefits all around. Friendly coworkers, comfortable working environment with a generally open work culture. Company has experienced substantial growth internationally, specifically when many companies were closing or downsizing. Lots of opportunity for personal and career growth. Brentwood continues to share its business goals, strategies and revenue growth with all employees. Their commitment/engagement to the communities of to which they reside is extremely active and very generous.

    Cons

    I wouldn't consider this a con necessarily, however the recent growth has created much change throughout the organization. Adapting to this change along with performing daily responsibilities has put noticeable stress on departments and personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen and communicate to all employees, top to bottom.

    I have been working at Brentwood Industries

    Pros

    None. Nice building. Spending lots of money to make it appear like a successful company.

    Cons

    Executive management does not care about the employees who really make a difference. Back stabbers galore. Executive management turns their heads to what is really going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the owner. He doesn't care. He's got nothing to lose and doesn't care about what we have to lose.
