Good place to learn
Associate Project Manager (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CA 94105July 21, 2016
Flexible staff and management, however a very large workload on a smaller staff. Colleagues are what really make Bracket work, most people give 120% when in the office.
Pros
Well stocked kitchen, hard working colleagues, flexible management
Cons
Heavy workload, pay not as competitive as it could be

Bracket has it's challenges but overall, it's a decent company to work for.
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CANovember 20, 2015
My experience with my assigned manager was not the best and was the primary reason for my decision to leave. However, Bracket has the best group of people I've had the pleasure of working with.
Pros
Great support from colleagues and team members, adequate financial compensation
Cons
Work life balance is lacking and some management lack the skills to lead a talented group.

The worst place a person could work
analyst (Former Employee) –  Wayne, PANovember 15, 2015
Regardless of your title, it seems as if Bracket is really a terrible place to work. I blame this mostly on management. Project managers are typically very bad at what they do. Mistakes and miscommunications occur all the time. Some projects feel like you are being sent on a wild goose chase with the number of changes made. It seems like no one knows how long things should take and they always grossly underestimate the amount of time allotted to a given activity. This leads to projects always running straight down to the wire which puts an unbelievable amount of stress on employees. If a project goes wrong, they are quick to point the finger. If you are thinking about working here please listen to the reviews. It's just not worth it. You will most likely end up making more elsewhere and your life will be a lot better. You wont be expected to work insane hours and have no life as you are expected to do at bracket. Sure the free food is cool, but it's really not worth it.
Pros
food
Cons
everything else

Was once a good place to work...
Sr. Project Specialist (Current Employee) –  Wayne, PAMay 1, 2015
Bracket provides many services to our pharmaceutical clients. There is much to learn and always plenty of work to do. Work can be fulfilling, but upper management seems to only focus on getting more business and often promises services to clients that have not yet been tested. Buyer (sponsor) beware. Very poor compensation for amount of work that is expected. 40+ hours every week.
Pros
Great project mngt. experience
Cons
Poor compensation

Work life balance
Manager Product Development (Current Employee) –  Wayne, PAMay 6, 2015
As a working mother, there needs to be a work life balance. My management ensures that there is a work life balance. The technology is sound and it is a great environment to work in.

Good company to work for
Project Specialist (Former Employee) –  Wayne, PAFebruary 19, 2013
Quite young and open working environment especially in the Project Delivery department. Many of Project Assistants are promoted from temp to permanent and some of them are even going up to Project Specialist level within 3-4 years.
Pros
benefits starts applying from the 1st day of hired.
Cons
upper management doesn't monitor much about pm's activities.

Fast paced environment for young people
Project Specialist - Specialty Clinical Services (Current Employee) –  Wayne, PASeptember 3, 2012
From day one, you hit the ground running. You learn about several Bracket-specific services offered and become an integral part of a 4-6 person team. Starting as a contractor may not seem appealing but it provides you with a chance to learn everything from the ground up. Everyone is very friendly and most are in their 20s and 30s which makes the company more fun. They use a lot of acronyms that you need to pick up on as it becomes second nature to use them without giving it a second thought. They expect a lot from you as from day one, you could be speaking directly with clients.
Pros
free soda vending machine, holiday party, welcome breakfasts, birthday celebrations, employee appreciation day
Cons
no overtime for full time employees, sometimes long hours (dependent on projects), favoritism

Work for 10 hours plus per day
Project Assistant (Current Employee) –  Wayne, PAOctober 30, 2011
Bracket is a growth company with 20% growth per year. Investors love this company and pharma clients also love it. Unfortunately, it is not a great place to work if you are looking for a work life balance.
Pros
happy hours, suburban drinking crowd, young company, international travel
Cons
long hours expected
