    I worked at Brother Industries full-time

    Pros

    Brother supplies their employees with choices with benefits and they are very good with being competitive in their salaries. They take care of their employees and they value your opinion for the most part.

    Cons

    If you don't have a degree you won't even be considered for employment...EVEN if you are more than qualified for the position withYEARS and YEARS of experience...like having a degree matters more than experience! Also you need to speak with your people to see who is being quite because they are afraid to speak the truth...because they know there manager will cause there work life hell.

    I worked at Brother Industries full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Relatively good benefits. Nice offices.

    Cons

    Company not doing well due to no new products. Management is clueless and disorganized. Politics - "yes" is the only allowed answer. Fiascos and disasters with every new project. Too many clueless people try to handle projects and processes with predictable results.

    I worked at Brother Industries full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The less you do, the more you succeed

    Cons

    Horrible. Out dated. What’s sensible about the board being all Sr. VPs? Allows poor behavior and a VP with no knowledge and experience to run a department. Do not work here if you want to keep your skills, they’ll suck any logical business sense right out of you.

    I worked at Brother Industries full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good. Nice office location.

    Cons

    Cliquey office politics outshine any actual accomplishments or skills. Unskilled and flustered directors of which there are too many. Daily chaos is enforced by reprimanding those with new ideas and suggestions for improvement. Constant hirings and firings in a perpetual revolving door. If office politics are your thing, welcome. Those who want to shine, gain experience and do actual work, look elsewhere.

    Pros

    Everything that was good about working here is long gone!!

    Cons

    No longer care about their long time loyal customer's nor employees. Full of unskilled managers and directors, all politically driven by their brown nose subordinates. Cliquey office politics outshine any actual accomplishments or skills. Constant hirings and firings in a perpetual revolving door. If office politics are your thing, and you know how to act and pretend that you know everything, while brown nosing your managers and directors... then this is a good place for you. Those who are experienced, honest, ethical and loyal individuals... and do ACTUAL work, look elsewhere.

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, nice people to work with

    Cons

    Poor training as managers and supervisors are having loads of meetings and cant get work done or train adequately thus leaving new hires clueless quite a bit. Also a bit unorganized. Also terrible HR. When you have a question, instead of offering assistance or knowing how to help, they refer you via email to talk to someone in the New Jersey offices.
