    I worked at Brandywine Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    they supply coffee and free parking, along with a desk, overhead lighting, and a small refrigerator. They also give you off for Christmas and New Years.

    Cons

    Incredible micromanagement and treated like a non human. There is no respect and the boss is always right, even though his judgement tends to be irrational. This is not even a good stepping stone for another position as the company is not respected in the industry

    Advice to Management

    Learn from history. Do you wonder why you have such high turnover?

    I worked at Brandywine Technology (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is plenty of parking, and a nice view of the golf course. And because turnover is so high, it doesn't take long to be the most senior in your group

    Cons

    This company is a great example of the buddy system. If you are with the "in" group, you are treated well. If not, you will be worried if you are next to go. And your ranking has nothing to do with performance, it is based on you being a "yes" person. Customers and consultants are treated as an inconvenience, and looked at like a cash cow. There is no room for growth as there are almost as many people with manager or director titles as there are people who actually do the work. Most employees figured it out, and the turnover rate is higher than any I have ever seen. If you are looking for your first or second job in technology, look elsewhere as the experience you gain here will not be helpful to your career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and fair.

    I have been working at Brandywine Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you produce, you are not micromanaged like A LOT of companies do nowadays, small or large. The owner, the directors and management are always there if you need assistance or to talk about anything. The base pay and commission plans are excellent! It's a fast paced but fun environment to be around daily.

    Cons

    When you wake up and actually like going to work, there are no cons!

    Pros

    Family oriented company. Everyone is very supportive of each other which makes a big difference when facing challenging situations at work or at home. There is a true sense of caring here that extends to our families, clients and the community.

    Cons

    More processes need to be implemented now that the company is growing.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate some of the old procedures to determine what still works and what needs to be changed.

    I have been working at Brandywine Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible atmosphere where professional ideas and opinions are expressed and respected. Small office environment where each employee brings a unique background and perspective to the business process. Everyone contributes to the overall process and manages their own desk to get the job done. Hard work is reciprocated with flexible schedules, in-office perks, and individual considerations.

    Cons

    Growing pains can create tension if not addressed quickly and appropriately. Too many policy changes at once is typically not received well - even if it is for the betterment of the company. Not everyone can always see the bigger picture.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you!!

    Pros

    The Directors of the company are always there for the employees when needed. They drop what they are doing and make the employees and the Customers their number one priority. Management always welcomes input from other employees for feedback and changes. Management does not micro-manage, and they allow creativity. Joel Pierson, although is the boss, he includes the employees in making decisions and lets them be a part of the decision making for growth as well as for our Customers service.

    Cons

    The company is growing. That is a wonderful thing. With growth, their is change and challenges, but that is a positive thing for the company as well as the customers and it's employees.

    Advice to Management

    Just want to say thank you to Management. Your hard work, long hours, please know that you are appreciated for everything you do for the employees and for caring so much about the customers.
