Pros – Brodeur is well-known and respected in the industry, which is surprising for how small it is. High profile clients offer name recognition as well, with clients like Toshiba, Corning, RIM, American Cancer Society. Good culture and people get rewarded for staying with the company. Professional development opportunities with on-site professional development consultant who meets with employees regularly to focus on their problem areas. Senior management for the most part demonstrates strong leadership and many of them have been with Brodeur for a very long time -- some from the AC level all the way to VP, EVP etc. Brodeur is a strong PR firm and withstood the dot com bust as a tech agency, which is a testament to its staying power.
Cons – While Brodeur does have an enjoyable culture for the MOST part, working there entails long hours and low salaries -- no bonus opportunities per se -- although some people have received performance spot bonuses, this does not etend to all employees. Uneven treatment of employees and overly demanding, unreasonable clients also make the environment much less pleasant. Brodeur also overservices to the extreme, more so than other agencies, and it contributes to the unreasonable expectations of the clients and heavy workloads. Did i mention the low salaries? They are in line with Weber Shandwick but unreasonably low given the absence of performance bonuses.
Advice to Senior Management – Be more transparent with policies, procedures and expectations of your employees. Recognize that structure is not a bad thing and many companies rely on these processes to ensure that everyone is on the same page. Structure and rules do not translate to a hassle and are necessary for sustaining equity
