Pros: they pay for your insurance
Cons: working there, bonuses that don't exist, management, brunel culture, and using navision.
Well, I have made many mistakes in my professional life as most people do. However, working at Brunel is probably the greatest mistake I have ever made in my career. A mistake I realized within days of starting there. In fact during my first week I started looking for another job. In a few short months I found one and quickly moved on with exhuberant – more... enthusiasm. There is a reason why there is a 45% turnover rate at Brunel Energy since January 2013.
Why did I want to leave Brunel? First off the training is terribly inadequate, management was untrustworthy and in general could care less about the employees there.
Management treats you like a child. Prohibits you from wearing headphones or even having your cellphones on your desk. Management is extremely unethical in their practices and any efforts to recitify these issues are brushed off with arrogance. Advancement is apparently only for those who carry a visa as all management positions are held by visa holders. If you are American then good luck moving up in the company.
Morale there is so low that Brunel has to write fake reviews on indeed to show positive reviews. I know the accounting supervisor and that person would not leave a review like that. In fact that person left the company as of this review. While I was there many employees would confide in one another that the mere thought of driving to Brunel would make them depressed. I went through this and thought I was the only one.
If you are considering Brunel, I would strongly consider looking elsewhere. You are bound to find a better job somewhere else. Leaving Brunel was probably one of the greatest decisions I have ever made in my life. I am now at a great company where my ideas are valued and I am treated with great respect.
Also, the ERP used there, Navision, is a fantastic mess that I wouldnt wish on my worst enemy. In fact thats how I feel about working at Brunel. – less
