Company is going through a lot of change; job roles are not clearly defined with constant change & no results; little focus on employee relations.
Product Owner/Manager (Former Employee), MilwaukeeAugust 19, 2015
Pros: Worklife Balance
Cons: Inter-department Communications, Management (Mid-Level), Employee Relations
Top management has changed over the past year+ and there were clear signs of positive trends (start of establishing processes, accountability & structure within the organization overall). There are pockets of opportunity and professional growth; however, it depends who you know/have as a manager. Overall, it was the worst professional career experience I've ever had in my 15+ years.

Uncertain future
Marketing (Former Employee), Branford, CTJuly 23, 2015
Pros: Good 401k, flexibility
Many leaders have been frantically trying to turn this company around for years. As a result, it's more like a dog chasing its tail. Prices down! No wait... prices up!

The work was very tedious and not at all creative. It was more like a production job of just churning out work without any research or analysis of results. So in essence, not really marketing.

The People are great and the job is stable, but the company is stagnant.
Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WIJuly 8, 2015
Working at Brady has been a great experience. The people are great and easy to work with, no matter if it's your own team or a cross functional one. The company is large and "safe" where the benefits are good and there is job stability.

However, it seems that there is very little direction with the upper management. Since the recession, the attitude has seemed to be safe and steady instead of exploring new products or new markets. It's hard to see where the company is going when there is difficulty creating a five year pipeline for new products or services.

Too much mandatory overtime
Assistant Machine Operator (Former Employee), Louisville, KYJuly 5, 2015
Pros: Pay, people, environment
Cons: Too much mandatory overtime, exhausting, long time to get hired on
The pay was decent. Most of the people were pretty cool. I loved the work itself but don't expect a 40 hour work week EVER. When I worked there my department worked 10 hour days, 6 days a week for most of the 7 months I was there. The other department worked 8 hour days but had to work 7 days a week. Chance of advancement is slim, I mean you can be trained on other positions pretty quick but nothing that comes with a pay raise. And if you want to get hired on you have to be there 6 or more months. There were people there who were great workers who didn't get hired on until being there 9 months. I was an outstanding worker, trained in all areas of my department and still wasn't hired on after 7 long months of busting my butt and working long hours.

Productive and professional workplace
Product Developer (Global) (Current Employee), BanburyJanuary 20, 2015
A typical day consist of working through projects to tight deadlines, ensuring targets are being met and working with colleagues throughout the business to push products into market.

I have learnt a lot about how a B2B business works and the types of products to create for this market.

The hardest part of my job is pushing multiple products through to market as i am the only Product Developer in the company.

The most enjoyable part of my job is the moment a product is in the market and it achieves the first sale.

R&D Process Engineer (Current Employee), Milwaukee, WIDecember 7, 2014
Working as process engineer with Brady Corporation has been a great learning experience. The people are very warm and helpful. A typical day at work requires identifying and seeking problems concerning a specific project. Intense brainstorming sessions with the colleagues to achieve most cost and time effective means to solve the problems are achieved. Being in R&D, the process sometimes takes time to attain fruition. But with every error I have learned the methods in more depth.

Picker/Packer (Current Employee), Milwaukee, WINovember 2, 2014
Pros: good company
Cons: pay rate
My day at work consist of packing orders that was already pulled from third shift staff, doing paper work, closing out ordesr when done with packing the orders on a system called IRMIS. When all the orders are packed we will get more orders and go pull more ourselves and continue this process throughout the day. On this job I've learned how to use their computer system and pay very criticle attention to detail. My co-workers and the management team are very helpful and team players we work together as a team everyday and no one complains about their job. The hardest part of the job is trying to get all the orders out on time so customers can recieve their orders on time. I love my job beacasue its fast pace and everybody gets alone.

Work hard and smile.
Box Maker (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WIOctober 3, 2014
Pros: liberty to work according to effective work habits.
Cons: temperary positions.
A work day at Brady was prepared and organized before employers arrived. The management team was clear about expectations and allowed room for error and redirected correction. I enjoyed working with a team of people who worked hard with genuine smiles. There were a few rough days but overall we worked hard to produce a win for the company which equated to a win for us as employees.
