"You can be just like good old Dad."

Sales Representative (Current Employee) Wauwatosa, WI

ProsGood benefits and competitive salary.

ConsIf you are not a relative in one of the families that dominate the company, forget career advancement. They say they are public, but it is a private fiefdom. Check out the President. His father was a President of Briggs also. He is not there because of ability. He had a gold spoon in his mouth since he was a baby. His education was done on company time with the company paying for it. Other employees just do not have the same opportunities. He has bullied the company's factory employees and likes to act tough. In reality, it is very easy to be tough, when you always had an unfair advantage over people who really never had a rich father.
