    I worked at Bracket full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lack of transparency Free ice cream Work From Home days are a potential Introduced to work outside your position Through grunt work may accidentally amass useful workarounds that provide a basis for better employment

    Cons

    Horrible work life balance Middle management are figureheads offering little protection for "grunt workers" Expectation is that you meet deadlines always no matter the personal cost even if it is attributed to poor management planning. I.E committing they actively seek out contracts knowing there isn't tools or available man hours to support contractual obligations Lots of sweeping mistakes under the rug - major concern when thinking about the impact the work Bracket does has on individuals No backup or relief adding additional pressures and quality concerns High turnover rate meaning lots of people are unsure of how to complete tasks Low pay compared to other businesses in the same industry Advancement is not clearly defined and haphazardly occurs Unhealthy and low moral resulting from the toxic environment HR is not the best Constant need to rework the contracts as B&D does not share a relationship with any department that fulfills the contracts resulting in companies being overcharged or quoted for services that we cannot maintain and lots of conversations with sponsors etc

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Bracket full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free snacks, ice cream during summer, benefits.

    Cons

    Leadership is only concerned about themselves. No one takes the time to onboard personnel properly which feels like you're being fed to the wolves. Project Managers are children who point blame at their study teams when they were the ones who gave terrible advice and direction. Very bad communication between departments. Technology is drastically older than industry competitors. The company has a constant cycle of being sold to Venture Capitalists who layoff good workers and pay the 'upper tier' workers more. Bonus is not guaranteed. Working from home is only for the favorites. This company needs a massive amount of help or just an overall reality check. No one wants to work for such a toxic business.
