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

    Pros

    -mostly a great team to work with
    -only company I've worked for that stresses their core values on a daily basis
    -important and valuable work on the metroplex's greatest projects

    Cons

    -unnecessary employees who are employed because the company has extra money even when they are not adding value
    -benefits are mediocre. PTO more than 2 weeks isnt given until after 5 years of work. HR department uses a paper method of renewing benefits (its 2016). 401k matching is not great comparatively.
    -no company credit card and expense/travel also not booked easily and electronically through 1 website like most other companies
    -you get the feeling that supplier funded trips and company provided hunting trips are only available to male management. Be more inclusive!
    -low pay compared to local and national competitors

    Advice to Management

    -get more lean with employees... Dallas construction will only be booming for so long. People should earn the right to a job... not be put into a job because of politics or who they know and then kept there because they've been moved there.
    -be more inclusive and welcoming!
    -put a stress on and encourage networking

    I worked at Brandt Companies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the sales team are very genuine people. The compensation package was excellent. The technology they use is very good and the IT department is solid.

    Cons

    Most of management is very underhanded, dishonest, and shows lack of leadership and judgment when making educated decisions. They will specifically pander to employees who have tenure but are not good team players. Management will also try a new business tactic without any proof of concept and then very quickly change their minds with no basis for doing so.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate your standards for keeping people on staff. I'm not surprised that the attitude of individual contributors reflects the attitude of poor management.
