    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!

    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.

    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!

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

    Pros

    I served as a Vice President for Brand Development in the company’s Chicago office for four years and it was the most rewarding professional opportunity of my career. BI is very generous with their compensation and structures their incentive programs to reward hard work. Jim Dettore is a legend in the branding industry and having the opportunity to work alongside him gave me professional knowledge and experience that I couldn’t get anywhere else. I am very grateful for my time at Brand Institute.

    Work/life balance was not an issue while I was at BI. I have children and was able to find time for them amidst all of my professional obligations. The company was very supportive.

    Cons

    Everyone at Brand Institute works very hard. The rewards for this work are generous, but commitment to excellence is an expectation.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for making Brand Institute a great place to work!
