    Pros

    I have been promoted 2 times in 2 years at Brady. It's place that rewards people for hard work and dedication.

    Cons

    Nothing is perfect and neither is Brady. The important thing is that leadership cares and is working hard to make improvements everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is currently making tough choices that are long over-due. Keep up the hard work, but don't forget the people that are executing the strategies.

    I have been working at Brady full-time

    Pros

    Inside sales supervisor is the best I've ever worked for. Amazing dedication to improving the team and each individual. Company is solid with quality products and value. Don't forget Tony in the Blue Glass cafe making amazing breakfast for cheap!

    Cons

    Lots of change which can be good or bad. Commission relies on field sales results and not all individual results.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for performance, incentivize extra effort and reward good behaviors. Pay the taxes on presidents club awards for people so they don't have to.

    Pros

    Great management and marketing staff. Excellent product and services team. Excellent inside support and technical team.

    I left the company due to personal reasons. This was a wonderful job experience and I cant think of any reason to not explore opportunities with Brady.

    Pros

    Great company, great mentorship opportunities and opportunities for interns to grow in the software industry....silicon valley environment in the midwest

    Cons

    So far there haven't been any downsides about working for Brady Corporation. If having understanding and supportive managers is a con, then be my guest :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Keep investing in growing talent and I think Brady Corporation will continue to become a great company that attracts and retains the best of midwest's tech talent.

    I have been working at Brady full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great management. We have the best manager within Brady Corporation. If you are getting your work done, helping others, and have desire to grow within the company, you will have great opportunity to do so. Flexibility is great when surprises occur. Pay is excellent. You are truly working as a team with your outside rep. I highly recommend.

    Cons

    Not many. One would be the commission structure is driven by some pretty high percentages. Regardless, It's on a sliding scale so you should always get something.

    Advice to Management

    Adjust the comp plan. I know you promote that it "isn't capped," but it sure feels like it. It is painful to see a low commission check when you work your butt off, and then you see another rep that strolls in two hours late every day boasting about her full commission (but they barely work). Very de-motivating.

    I have been working at Brady full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company is taking the right steps to help the company move forward. The leadership team has been very open and honest. The CEO brings a lot of energy and passion. He is very forthcoming about what needs to be done to ensure success. He can be conservative at times, but really wants to take Brady back to its core roots.

    Cons

    Long term employees at times struggle with some of the change taking place, but overall it is right thing for the business.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open and honest. The employees want to know what is happening and if you do this you will continue to gain their trust.

    I have been working at Brady full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Feels like home, harmonious environment, people are great. Great compensation too, otherwise I would`nt have stayed for almost seven years now. Job is challenging but compensated by weekends off. So there`s a balance of work and leisure.

    Cons

    While Brady is nice to work with, growth is a challenge. Maybe because other than the sales team , attrition is so low, seldom employees would leave. And so promotion is almost rare
