    I have been working at Breg full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Multiple avenues to have your voice, suggestions and feedback heard. Very transparent with the direction and success of the company. Good culture. High ethical standards. Quality product with a solid reputation.

    Cons

    The company is in growth mode and because of that, things change often or can be unclear initially. Industry changes have brought some uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    We try to fail fast but we should plan thoroughly to avoid some failures.

    I worked at Breg full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits were really good. That's the only thing they have to keep their employees.

    Cons

    What can I say? There's so many issues I had with Breg that it's hard to write them all down. Leadership will defend leadership until they are blue in the face even when they are at fault. They will not listen to your concerns. If you have any good ideas about anything they will take that and suggest it as if it was theirs. My leadership did that ALL the time. I had to run everything through her and she had to...

    Pros

    Awesome Group of Peers, I believe in the product and love helping people.

    Cons

    Executives are not getting the full story from middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Meet with lowest level subordinates and see what is ACTUALLY happening. Cultural beliefs are being skewed and Situational leadership is non existent. Have them acknowledge the hard work of all not just the favorites.

    I worked at Breg full-time

    Pros

    Some of the people that have been there awhile are genuine, and know what the true Breg Culture means.

    Cons

    The health insurance is terrible and high priced Management does not value there long time employees that are committed to the company. Management does not listen to the employees concerns. They used to have a great culture of beliefs and practiced those beliefs towards all employees. Now they have beliefs just to say they put them in place. They are not followed anymore. A lot of employees that had been there for...

    Advice to Management

    The CEO/President needs to know what is going on, and know the truth. HR needs to really think about what is fair, and how the employees are being treated.

    I have been working at Breg full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company has shed people who would not comply with FDA regulations and complained documentation requirements were over burdensome. PTO is unlimited. Great management. Safety and Quality in Texas has vastly improved over the last year.

    Cons

    Still working through issues due to order system upgrade.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage current employees to give reviews on glassdoor. The site is trolled by too many former employees who needed to be fired for not following the rules.

    I worked at Breg full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice coworkers. Fair compensation package.

    Cons

    A lot of mixed messages. Some executives do not follow the same message the CEO is handing out. They say one thing and do another. That's why they love 1 on 1 meetings-- no witnesses to the condescending attitude and lazy managing.

    Pros

    Allows you to build the valuable skillset to progress

    More of an entry level position. If working for a distributor, no expenses/401k/medical

    Advice to Management

    Keep being innovative. Come out with new products to differentiate from the competition

    Pros

    Coworkers are pleasant. Plenty of feedback opportunities. Genuine efforts are made to improve. Willing to spend money when necessary. Facility is clean, well-kept.

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive. Annual compensation calibration is not executed as it is presented.

    Advice to Management

    (4) 10-hour days/ week schedule would be awesome.
