I have been working at Brand Institute full-time (less than an year)

Pros

My time at Brand Institute has been like a breath of fresh air compared to my previous career as a pharmaceutical advertising executive. They have provided me with the opportunity to thrive in a performance driven environment selling a service whose demand is constantly being renewed; all new products require a name. Teamwork, organization, platform skills, project management skills, relationship building skills and perseverance will make you successful here. And clients welcome you on the strength of Brand Institute's reputation for success.

Cons

This is a sales driven organization and naturally you are measured on various performance parameters so you must have the ability to handle the pressure. If you can't handle the heat don't come in to the kitchen!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A more structured 'on boarding' program may help support the learning curve for new hires.

    Pros

    Brand Institute has been a great wake up call to me. I go to work everyday knowing there is something new to learn. The way I see it, this company gives you the opportunity to grow as much as the employee chooses to go in this field. It is kept in a very professional and serious environment. The type of environment that produces, and it is apparent its numbers and how they pay the employees. I have been treated with the utmost respect and professional, like successful companies should, having as many people involved as possible in all aspects and having the opportunity to learn all aspects of the business, and working directly with upper management; a major advantage in the field of pharmaceuticals.

    Cons

    How can i criticize a multi million dollar company that treats their employees to executive lunches once a month...

    Pros

    This is an industry leader in brand name creation, specialized in the pharma / healthcare industry. If you are in the sales area, you will interact with first-level clients ALL the time, establishing connections for your whole career, and having the opportunity to maybe create a blockbuster name like Lipitor. Imagine if you do that for a client. Few can hit such a marketing home run. Brand Institute directors do that for a living. Everyone in management and operations will do everything they can to help you deliver what the client wants. The company has healthy revenues and compensates its successful sales people accordingly.

    If you work in operations, you will create and run state-of-the-art processes to support the company product and sales teams. It is a demanding environment, but the work is very interesting and rewarding: Brand Institute is reinventing the brand name creation industry every day and you learn a lot in the process! Except for the subject matter experts, who are leaders in their professional fields, having worked for the FDA and other regulators, and who have extensive industry experience, employees in entry level positions do not need to come from top schools or have extraordinary resumes. What will make you successful here is your energy, your commitment to work, your creativity and your ability to learn and work as part of a team. The size of the company and its management style is such that you will have visibility and ample opportunity for your talent to be noticed. The compensation and benefits are competitive. You also get monthly rewards tied to the achievement of sales goals, end of year bonuses, and other perks such as free public transportation or parking.

    Cons

    An uncompromising client focus can make work very stressful. Urgent requests at the last minute are not unheard of. You will be pressured to achieve your goals, and you will not last long if you do not deliver. Due to the niche and changing nature of the work, many processes are ad-hoc or specific to the company, and some skills are not easily transferrable to a new job, unless your position involves the creation and modification of those processes, in which case you are getting great practice!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire an HR Manager to supervise processes such as formal employee evaluations (including for management) and training for new employees. That can help in improved employee retention and morale.
