Pros

- Interesting service concept
- Company is growing quickly, which can be exciting
- Employees are young, hard-working group
- Donut Wednesdays

Cons

- Horrible work-life balance
- Very little vacation time (8 paid days per year, and it's on an accrual system)
- Most employees are not receiving nearly close to what they they deserve to be making
- Benefits suck
- Commission structure in certain teams is unbalanced and, oftentimes, unfairly distributed
- Company is not very well led from a management perspective, not to mention management is completely uninspiring
- No information sharing
- Good luck getting recognized for your hard work, but don't be surprised to be scolded for minor mistakes
- Management doesn't set strong expectations or goals for advancing within the company
- Many of the people who work there are robotic or just have poor attitudes, likely due to the poor pay/benefits, horribly long hours, and lack of solid leadership at the company

....too many others to mention!

Advice to Management

- Learn how to properly run a business
- Treat all employees the same -- this means fair pay, better benefits, and better leadership so expectations are clearer
- Eliminate the specious 'growing company' BS...Sure, the company's growing like crazy, but this isn't translating to higher pay, more promotions, or anything of that nature. Just more money in the pockets of incompetent management.

    I have been working at Brafton full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back work environment (collared shirt and jeans), super friendly bosses, very young company, job responsibilities are clear, great location, easy commute on most trains, good healthcare.

    Cons

    Not a lot of upward mobility, low commissions, low base salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a clear path for career advancement with short term, mid term and long term goals. Better utilize the talent you already have in-house allowing more employees to transfer across departments.

    I worked at Brafton full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You learn how to churn out a lot of work in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    The demand is way too high for the salary and job description. Upper management would rather lock clients into contracts rather than give the creative teams the resources they need to actually make clients happy.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what you're doing and relay the information to everyone below you. Everything that goes wrong just ends up being the fault of the writer because they don't get what they need to do well.
