Bracket in Wayne, PA and San Francisco (also known as Bracketglobal)

ProsPeers and opportunities for travel to interesting locations

ConsSadly, there are alot of cons to working at Bracket. First, management is overall ill-equipped and untrained on the core responsibilities such as mentoring, feedback (positive and negative), and team building. I report unhappily that the work environment is fear based and blame based. Managers tend to deal in crisis mode only and always focus on what's wrong/mistakes rather than what is right and working. This leads to people afraid to take chances and take responsibility. Bracket is also not flexible, institutes a core hours policy that is antiquated if not ancient, and overall has a management philosophy and style that is paternal in the worst sense of the word (think of the father as authoritarian). It's depressing since there is so much potential and so many great people working there and silently wanting and needing change.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvite someone into your management ranks that hasn't been there since the company was 25 people--get some fresh and new ideas and incorporate them. Don't be afraid of change--listen to your employees, they are your bread and butter and are smart and savvy. Management--please take training courses on modern management style and approach. Bring those concepts back into the office and into practice. Be a trailblazer, be innovative, meet the challenges of a modern workforce who offer so much. Strive to be better at serving each other and at serving the client. And finally embrace respect for differences in how people choose to live and work--there are many roads to getting to the same result. Stop forcing people to follow one road only. The company and believe it, you, will be better for it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at Bracket full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Location and a pay check. Cons: If like an environment that is boring and non-engaged, this is the place for you. Most likely the most depressing office environment I… Advice to Senior Management: Get with the program. This is 2013, not 1980's. Low morale… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
