    I worked at Brady full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are nice. Free coffee.

    Cons

    Managers were promoted on a "people I like basis". Most "Engineers" do not even have a degree in Engineering. Ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    You constantly have "employee surveys". Employees are pissed off at low pay and mid level management, and then you still promote them or keep them because they rate each other. They write their own report cards! No wonder so many people are looking for other jobs.

    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.
