Once great company seems to have lost its way.

Management (Current Employee)
Milwaukee, WI

I have been working at Brady

ProsCore company culture and values are excellent.
Wide variety of markets and businesses under one corporate entity makes for possibility of more interesting job assignments.
Historically strong brand and market reputation.

ConsCompany has run out of ideas to grow business organically and now the main strategy is to acquire companies. Hardly counts as "Bold".
Company was once very strong in innovation, R&D. Some signs of that coming back to life, but nowhere near previous levels of success.
Overall compensation gap between the "Club" at the top and the rest of the managers pulling the work load has widened by an obscene amount.
In addition, executive management will go out of their way to take care of themselves, even when things aren't going so well for the rest of the employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementDig deep and reassess what made the company a great force in the markets and a great place to work and try to recapture that before its too late.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Not what it once was

Pros: Friendly office environment. Process based company. Brady has good internal systems… 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… Advice to Senior Management: Improve communication throughout the company. Position changes are rarely announced. Employees find it hard to know… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
