    I worked at Brother International

    Pros

    Its a job. Its steady work. Its a big organization. There are multiple locations that you can find work in. There are multiple departments that you can move to if there is an opening.

    Cons

    Like any big organization, Brother International gets bogged down in meetings, procedures, policies, and egos. A lot of good people work for the company because its a job. Are they happy or satisfied, no. Are they uninspired, yes. Meetings and reports have become more important that servicing the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. In order to improve your organization you need fresh young blood in your upper managemnet. Some of your managers in the service departments are too set in their ways to listen. This is to the disadvantage of your customers.

    I worked at Brother International full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Stable employment, rarely bothered as long as got on with work and was producing the right information.
    Good salary, bonus', benefits and pay rises.
    Some teams very good to get on with and discuss and achieve great things with.

    Cons

    The business / HR team rarely took any account of what was being said, requested, required for development and learning.
    If it wasnt broke - dont fix it.
    some teams not so great and discussing and disseminating information to get your work done.
