I worked at Brady

Pros

Friendly office environment.
Process based company. Brady has good internal systems (SAP) for product managment, order processing and reporting.
High quality standards for products.

Cons

Brady used to be very employee orientated. Great Benefits and an excellent record of hiring from within and recognition. That all changed over the past few years. Benefits have withered and the costs have skyrocketed. Company wide layoffs are a regular event and most people fear for their jobs most of the time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve communication throughout the company. Position changes are rarely announced. Employees find it hard to know who is in charge of what. Bring back benefits packages worthy of a company this size.

    Pros

    Location is nice. Plant is clean.

    Cons

    Everything from HR to benefits to IT etc. etc. is outsourced. It is ridiculous to get a problem solved if you are an employee as you must call another country essentially. Used to be a great place, now just too many paranoid managers and high level management wannabees. Used to have a great cafeteria, library, resources... now that's all gone. Everything is now farmed out to China. Products had at one time a lot of loving care, now the push for new products at all cost comprimises quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making every stuffed shirt a director. There are more than enough layers of managers and non-working Dilbert types. There was a great culture there 10 years ago. Now it's over run by kids out of finance school and non-techies.
