I worked at Brady full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The manufacturing facility in Milwaukee is clean.

Cons

Used to have talented people but they've treated people so poorly since the recession most of them are gone. Average in the talent pool, many Execs have left (CTO, CEO) and Tom Felmer has absolutely no ability to see the value in his people. He's as cut throat as they come. Claims he values talent and people development but behind closed doors it's a different story. He wants nothing to do with people unless they can help make the company money. Brady lacks innovation and has not been able to grow in several years so why now?They used to have a strong culture but that was destroyed during the recession when they slashed so many jobs and did it with absolutely no regard to the people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give up! Other companies have been and continue to poach your top talent.

    I have been working at Brady full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Terrific people, approachable executives, career growth and learnings. Opportunity for international work and working across functions, learning about business principles you'd normally never have exposure to in many offices (lean, 8 step problem solving). Compassionate leadership who want to know employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes slower to evolve practices, traditional benefits package. Could stand to be more innovative with their approach to business and employees and take more risk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistent leadership has advantages and the longer term tenure of senior management can be a plus if their education continues to stay fresh with how business is changing.
