    I have been working at Brooks International full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I am not one to take reviews very seriously because I understand that there may be past employees who are holding a grudge or posting inaccurate information simply because because they were not a good fit with the company. My experience has been the complete opposite than some reviews on here and that is the reason why I decided to write a review in the first place. I entered Brooks International as a recent graduate from my Bachelors and roughly half way through my Masters. Not only was the leadership team willing to work with my school schedule, they were genuinely rooting for me and involving me in projects that were of my upmost interest in order for me to expand my abilities and grow in my career. I have know been with Brooks International for almost a year and I am extremely thankful to be part of such a great organization which is involved in delivering on their promises and making extraordinary improvements for the largest companies in the world. To conclude, my favorite thing of working for Brooks International is the career opportunities and development. Every position at Brooks has a defined career path which is laid out and enforced so that you are constantly challenging yourself and progressing in your career.

    Cons

    I understand that a position with Brooks International may not be for everyone. However, if you are someone who is willing to learn, wants to make impactful contributions for some the largest companies in the world, and have a strong work ethic, then Brooks International is right for you.

    Pros

    Great people who are just trying to deliver the project

    I worked at Brooks International full-time

    Pros

    Good people who are very smart. Paid working lunches if necessary. Headquarters is in a good location.

    Cons

    Lui is the most difficult person to work for. His leadership style is to berate and belittle. He makes you feel like the smallest person in the room in hopes to improve job performance. Far from motivating. Extremely long hours, six days per week including travel Sunday and Friday.

    I worked at Brooks International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -They will accept work from any client doing anything they'll pay for regardless of experience in the space so you will get exposure to a wide variety of companies/industries. -If you are early in your career you will get to interact with clients at a high level within companies -Rack up hotel points and airline miles as you'll spend 230+ nights/year in a hotel

    Cons

    -Turnover is insane, average tenure is <1 year leading to the blind leading the blind and zero "expertise" as is sold to clients -CEO is a micromanager who has surrounded himself with a small band of "yes men". Only people who survive more than a year are there because they've perfected the art of throwing others under the bus -Organization is stuck in the 1950s; showing up at manufacturing sites in full suits; rate at which the CEO spouts off wildly sexist metaphors is almost impressive -Company relies on contractors (because of insane turnover) yet they treat the contractors as 2nd class citizens and leadership constantly disparages them to FTEs -Project benefits are wildly oversold to clients and then unethical techniques used to make it appear that benefits are actually being realized - company embraces "over promise, under-deliver" -100% of the positive reviews on here are fake and written by the company; There is not a single person who has worked at this company (at least in the last 5 years) and has a single positive thing to say about them

    Pros

    Get to keep your travel reward points

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance with Sunday through Friday travel, feigned interest in and commitment to career development, poor project management. Ultimately believe the bad reviews as they are accurate. Firm claims it has 250 employees, plus or minus when this is completely inaccurate as the number is closer to 50 and turnover is extremely high.

    Pros

    Not a whole lot of good things to say if any.

    Cons

    All you have to do is read the negative reviews....all of them and see how far back they go. I hate to say it, but they are all true.

    Pros

    Incredible training before delivering to major executives and their organizations around the world. The Managing Partners are all extremely professional and disciplined and always deliver to a client's requirement. All Executives at this organization are Top Shelf and First Class.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, not everyone can leave with gratitude and appreciation for what was earned in the form of training and industry knowledge. I am not one to post on social media until I saw some of the angry posts of those who were not able to make it.
