I worked at Brady full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I had flexible hours, Above average vacation time. It had a relaxed casual environment.

Cons

Management. They are to slow to make decisions or allow employees that do the day to day work flexibility to make decisions. Management does not deal with bad employees quickly which caused tension and lowered morale in the department.

Advice to Management

Trust employees and micromanage less.

    Pros

    relaxed environment, good benefits, great people

    Lack of direction from the management, very resistant to change, fear of layoffs, corporate politics, playing favorites ect. Underwhelming after LDP/ Rotational program.

    Advice to Management

    Grand ideas are never put into action or explained in detail, feels like the company is wandering aimlessly

    I have been working at Brady full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent working conditions and mostly nice people to work with. The work-life balance is reasonable and benefits are basic.

    Cons

    The CEO and Sr. Management team are totally disengaged and the business is drifting. Bad executive decisions continue and the cost of those errors are being dumped on the employees in the form of higher health care premiums, no raises and no bonuses while the executive team reaps huge benefits. Organic & sales growth continues to lag and, while the company once was a market leader, now lags competitors with a stodgy and ineffective management style. Headcount reduction has become more than an annual event and morale is at an all-time low. Talented people, including "C" level employees are leaving in large numbers.

    Advice to Management

    The best and brightest people are leaving as the corporate culture continues to decay. Extensive use of high priced consultants indicates the management team can't manage the business itself. The CEO & executive team should resign as they have presented no strategic plan for growth and continue to wipe the cost of failed business initiatives on the employees while the CEO repeatedly says he's "excited" by it all. On-going reorganization efforts are simply diversion tactics that do nothing to improve the business. This used to be a great company but is rapidly headed in the wrong direction. Hopefully, the current death spiral can be reversed.
