    I have been working at Brand Institute full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Every company has employee’s that complain and never are satisfied, and best they move on.

    In the 18 years that I have worked and followed our CEO and tenured management successful business strategies, their attention to acquiring, keeping, and motivating the best Talent in our industry amazes me. You have to innovate and work harder and smarter to compete in today’s highly competitive branding industry, which we do well. Starting at the bottom in 1993 and working our way to # 1 in healthcare name development in 2004, continuing to stay # 1 for 12 going on 13 consecutive years, while knocking off many competitors and huge ad agencies along the way is an incredible achievement for Brand Institute.

    Very few companies stay at # 1 that long, so the current business model truly works, by way of our CEO’s vision, vs. other competitors that have tried to replicate it, but never have. For me, it feels great working and learning with the best branding company in our space.

    Cons

    Staying # 1 is difficult and hard work, including putting in extra hours, and constant demands that challenge your learning curve and response time. Innovation never stops at Brand Institute, leading to the need for working smarter and harder, but very its rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Stay # 1

    I worked at Brand Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great business leadership and on the job training and insight from the number one health care branding company in the world. Helped me obtain a good pharmaceutical sales position. This is the only company who pays ALL of the employees healt care and even awards monthly with meals and cash for meeting goals. Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Like any leader in business customer service and working to make the customer happy is part of the DNA of Brand Institude resulting in sometimes working after hours to insure the highest quality products are delivered on time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the innovation focus and health care client initiatives.

    I have been working at Brand Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Brand Institute is a client-focused work environment that offers excellent compensation in exchange for commitment and hard work. I have to say that BI transformed the way I approach work and treat clients. I’ve grown tremendously as a businessperson during my time here. The experience that I gained at BI is irreplaceable. As an entry-level employee, I was able to work directly on important client projects.

    Jim Dettore and my managers take a strong personal interest in my success and provide me with wonderful growth and development opportunities.

    Cons

    Everyone is expected to pull their own weight at Brand Institute. We’re a hard-working team that is well compensated and we want to hire very strong team players.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    I spent four years working at Brand Institute in the business development group as my first job out of school. My time at BI provided me with crucial career development that prepared me for my current marketing position with a major pharmaceutical company. Jim Dettore and the BI team gave me the training and knowledge that I needed to succeed in this role in an extremely supportive team environment.

    Brand Institute is a fast-moving company where everyone is expected to pour themselves into their work and help the company grow. Those who make this commitment to excellence are generously rewarded.

    I worked at Brand Institute full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Brand a Institute is a great company to work for. Mr. Dettore and the management team are very generous and kind individuals. I had the pleasure of working at BI for five years working as part of the new business development team and market research.

    Working at BI you get great advice and direction from management. The pay and the benefits are great, since they have a very good incentive system in place, along with monthly perks for the entire company when certain sales goals are reached.

    The employees are also very nice. Most of them have been with the company for years, and are always available to provide help and support, when needed.

    At BI you will find an innovative, open minded, and culturally diverse family that will lead you to success. It was truly an honor being part of the lead company in the naming industry.

    Cons

    There are not cons that I experienced during my time at BI. It was a pleasure being part of the Brand Institute family.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being the great, wonderful and kind hearted people you are. Thank you for everything you do!
