Avoid this place
Front-End Developer (Former Employee) –  Chicago, IL13 October 2017
My direct team manager and team was great. Upper management is awful and at times appears clueless to what is going on across the board. Upper management also thinks that analytics and actual data are not important, making them the non-advancing company that they are.

For being such a small office in Chicago there is absolutely no work culture and is the type of cubical job that you dread to go to. (e.g. Get up, commute to work, work, commute home, eat, sleep...Rinse and repeat.) I would steer clear of this place, there is absolutely no loyalty to their employees.
Pros
none

Sr. Credit Analyst (Former Employee) –  Mandaluyong12 October 2017
I think Brady is a good place to work at. With good culture, good compensation. The management shows respect to its employees. Open door policy. They are open to new ideas. The human resources team don't stop of thinking of ways on how to motivate and benefit their employees Although with low probability of promotion because it's an in house company, everything else is very good!
Pros
montlhy treats
Cons
low probability of promotion

Brady provides work life balance culture and they are also good in providing benefits and commissions to those who performs since they live with the saying performance matters most.

Awful place
Sales (Former Employee) –  Williamsville, NY2 October 2017
Do NOT work here. Turn over is extremely high. You get punished for being a good employee. Managers are terrible and don't care about employees. Do yourself a favor and stay away.

Morgue
Sales (Current Employee) –  Williamsville, NY16 September 2017
The company could thrive and be an excellent place to work, but management is focused completely wrong on how to run a company.

The sales goals are impossible. With a recent restructure, their top sales associates are not able to hit their goals, yet their worst sales reps are hitting everything. It's become a matter of luck, not of skill, to hitting your goals and ultimately making your commission checks.

Management is non-existent and only has their best interest in mind, not the interest of their teams or employees.

Benefits are decent, but the atmosphere is a morgue when you walk in. I have never entered a sales building and felt such negativity without speaking to anyone before.

Advancement is minimal. Co-workers are decent, so that's a plus, but everyone is leaving. Turn over rate is insanely high. Micromanagement is the new way to motivate your teams, if you are doing things to make upper management happy.

In short, find something else and use Brady as a last resort.

Good place for excellent work experience.
International Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WI13 September 2017
Brady globally sells high quality identification and safety products. They approach the market aggressively and professionally. So this is a good company for excellent work experience. Just don't expect to work there for your entire career. They change directions often which includes frequent personnel changes.
Pros
Excellent Benefits
Cons
Brady restuctures often so plan on moving on within a few years

Brady is a business focused on achieving goals and little else. Everyone works to drive towards delivery of the fiscal years' goals. It is nice to be somewhere that isn't fake.

Laid off due to restructure.
Account Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  Williamsville, NY24 August 2017
I was one of maybe 3 Representatives that were hitting their Sales Goals after a restructure in November and I was laid off in June...Not happy.Found out they are hiring Assistants to Sales Reps.This tells me that once trained these Assistants will take other Sales Reps jobs for less money.
Pros
Fun working environment.
Cons
Micro managed too much.

Management clueless
Distribution Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Williamsville, NY24 July 2017
Started out ok then reality set in supervisors managers and several talented people left within 8 months of my being hired. No one showed up for interviews and those few who did left within first couple weeks. Initially had a good crew but current supervisor threw everyone under the bus to obtain managers job. To sum it up sheep being led by fools who are under 30 years old. Their parents obviously spared the rod and spoiled the child. I miss the few good workers but overall not a very good place to work. Glad I left when I did almost made it a year but could not tolerate much more spineless backstabbing mid management
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Spineless kids in management roles cause their friends of the plant supervisor

Production Manager (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KY21 July 2017
Long days, good pay and benefits, lots of changes not well done. Need good managers to take over Louisville plant. Brady overall is a good company, but the move from New Jersey to Louisville, with uncommitted managers was one failure after another.
Pros
new building, nice breakroom
Cons
extremely long hours

Poor Managment
Regional Development Manager (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WI26 June 2017
Middle Management really failed to utilize there talent. Many people left.

The sales department has a lot to learn about managing and cultivating talent.

Fine place to work. Good people, but poor place to develop a career.
