Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Location is nice. Plant is clean.

Cons

Everything from HR to benefits to IT etc. etc. is outsourced. It is ridiculous to get a problem solved if you are an employee as you must call another country essentially. Used to be a great place, now just too many paranoid managers and high level management wannabees. Used to have a great cafeteria, library, resources... now that's all gone. Everything is now farmed out to China. Products had at one time a lot of loving care, now the push for new products at all cost comprimises quality.

Advice to Management

Stop making every stuffed shirt a director. There are more than enough layers of managers and non-working Dilbert types. There was a great culture there 10 years ago. Now it's over run by kids out of finance school and non-techies.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Most of the people are friendly
    Great benefits, started first day of work
    Suburban location with plenty of parking
    Pay is decent for the area.

    Cons

    Speaking up or asking a question makes you look like a troublemaker-this is a VERY passive group of employees
    There were some workplace privacy issues-part of the reason why I left
    No work/life balance-be at work no matter what!!!
    There was a factory on site-lots of health issues among employees
    Younger, less educated employees were usually the ones promoted first
    Difficult employees "kicked upstairs"

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, respect your employes' privacy and work/life balance

    Currently, there is a lack of communication for key changes taking place, in a time when a lot of change is occurring.

    Advice to Management

    There is a strong leadership team at Brady, many people who have been with the organization a number of years.
