    I have been working at Breg full-time

    Pros

    Great coworkers who work together as One Team
    Long tenured employees
    Good benefits and pay (including employee recognition programs)
    Autonomy in projects and position in the company
    Ability to provide feedback to all levels of the organization even the CEO who takes a proactive approach to visiting sites asking for feedback from employees

    Cons

    Constant change but with the merger of two companies that should be expected. However, the management team does a great job communicating the changes to ensure that the employees are aligned.

    Advice to Management

    Keep reinforcing communication and knowledge sharing across all sites and departments.

    Thank you for your post! It is a great reminder of the importance of giving employees the chance to provide feedback to the highest level of the organization. There is no substitute for face-to-face ... More

    Pros

    Good benefits, great people, executive leadership is driven and motivating.

    Cons

    Long hours and OT expected to meet goals, senior leadership doesn't care about work life balance. Little recognition for hard work. Bonus not given as stated in offer letter, you only get percentage. Raise was only 1% after passing goals.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as people who have lives outside of the company.

    I worked at Breg full-time

    Pros

    Good products, knowledgeable employees, Company seems as if it wants to improve.

    Cons

    Disconnect between what the company thinks it is culturally and what is happening internally. No clear direction or understanding of how to improve. Overall lack of caring as it relates to how company decisions affect the lives of employees or customers.

    Advice to Management

    Get control of your inventory and reimbursement structure. Place more effort into developing and retaining talent. Streamline pricing structure. Improve tracking and shipping product.

    Pros

    The culture believe are great, but the supervisor doesn't have the people skills. Always finds mistakes and put you down of your mistakes.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive. Lots of drama. Lack of communication. Doesn't care of your feedback to better the department. Your are only a number not a person with feelings.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees of their feedback to better the department and work environment or they will eventually quit and be an asset to another company. They want to part of the wheel.

    Pros

    Zip Nada Zilch Zero Nothing (I had to enter at least 5 words for this section)

    Cons

    HORRIBLE company culture. TERRIBLE leadership. Pretty much everyone at a DIRECTOR level has sold their soul to the lowest form imaginable. And even at that, there's plenty of others at lower levels who are just as bad. I've seen so much BULLYING at this place, and had to sit by with my mouth shut in fear I'd lose my job if I spoke up about what was really happening. Oh, and if you bully people and try to mask it as 'cultural cleansing' then you get promoted!!! That's how there are so many poor performers and people without any real experience in their job fields at this place. Think Trump on steroids--welcome to BREG!!!

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't take any advice, or listen to anyone other than culture club and brown nosing leadership. No advice cuz no one here cares or listens!!!

    If people could rate Breg as zero stars, plenty would! Keep on having your communication and hR peep post bogus positive reviews.

    Pros

    Everyone here is friendly and sees each other as equals. Everyone laughs with each other. Some may not speak English, however you can always get some one to help you translate. Breg Plainfield, IN has a beautiful facility.

    Cons

    Orders usually run out too early. The facility is a bit too dusty and does cause some allergies.

    Pros

    The working envioronment is very pleasant - no suits! Open door policy is refreshing. Great salary - but allows me to have a flexible schedule to spend time with my family which is more important to me than any salary.

    Cons

    No part time positions available - which is very important to me at this time in my career.

    Advice to Management

    Management is taking steps in the right direction to communicate effectively with employees with employee forums. Communication is key.
