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

    Pros

    Company is market leader which means its spent more than a decade finding ways to stay ahead of its competitors
    Offers industry-leading benefits
    Opportunity to collaborate with highly talented programmers and top talent internally

    Cons

    Some younger employees might not be accustomed to the more traditional environment - conservative, formal business attire is expected as well as formal courteous tone in all business communication, even internally. Employees who are looking for 9-5 work beware, the company culture is all around service which means you will sometimes be handling business needs outside of business hours

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on cultivating young talent and giving big opportunities to employees early in their careers

    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

    So far I love working for BI. I love the people, the atmosphere, the organization, etc. Very easy to get long with people and a younger crowd of professionals.

    Cons

    There's bad days like any other job. Long hours if something is due.

    Advice to Management

    More training would greatly be appreciated!

    I worked at Brand Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Top tier clients. Some very good junior and mid-level colleagues. Nice lunches as token appreciation. Decent technology provided (but beware as everything is GPS tracked).

    Cons

    Complete dysfunction from the CEO down. Everything about this company is 'Fake News'. Given 80% plus turnover, dont believe any of the 5 star reviews. Do yourself a favor and stay away. The 5 minute interview should be a clue.

    Any ideas or constructive criticism to improve work met with scorn. Don't rock the boat or ask anyone to think beyond their cookie cutter roles or your demerits begin. Zero transparency, zero trust, zero growth, zero learning.

    Advice to Management

    Retire.

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

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for everything you to to help your team grow personally and professionally. You make Brand Institute a great place to work and your effort is appreciated!
