    I worked at Brandes Associates full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Brandes is a small business that really cares about employees and customers! Unlike similar companies, Brandes is well past the founder's phase and has a talented management staff in place that truly understands their customer's needs. I truly believe leadership really cares! The company offers many outstanding perks including a sound benefits package, a really high-end holiday party, and fun events during the year... for employee families. They are building a company that people want to work for, and customers want to partner with.

    I worked at Brandes Associates full-time

    Pros

    I worked for the company for about a year and the people are what make the company great. I had an issue and when it was addressed, it was addressed by the president of the company and felt like I mattered. They took action and it was addressed and fixed.

    Cons

    They are a smaller company and so it was difficult to transition to another position because there wasn't any opportunities available. If the opportunity was available then I would have gladly stayed with Brandes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to care about your people

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Brandes Associates full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They have nice health benefits. They have occasional leadership training. I do not concern myself with work after I leave work. But that is the nature of my position.

    Cons

    Most of the company is based on contracts, so if you are on the part of the house, you worry about who you are working for, salary and if you are working every few years. That can be stressful. Sometimes managment doesn't have your best interest in mind. The do not utilize your skills where it would best for your growth or your abilities.

    Advice to Management

    You should offer up technical training to personnel, or education reimbusement. Then you can create employees geared to what you want

    Pros

    Talented co-workers, good benefits, great ethics and values, recognition that employees are the heart of company. Frank Brandes has done a great job of putting together some of the top talent available and making them feel happy to work with him.

    Cons

    Small company's limited resources can sometimes prevent exploration of ideas with long range potential.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing great job
