The worst company I have ever worked for. Look at other options.
Project Specialist (Current Employee), Wayne, PaMarch 21, 2013
Pros: free soda, nice people, nice building
Cons: job responsibilities, management, salary....almost everything else
This company is desperate to hire not because they are growing quickly but because they have horrible retention. The project team does work that would be done by a secretary or administrative assistant at any other workplace.

Because they are a vendor firm, they do the work that pharmaceutical companies deem to be below their talent level and wish – more... to outsource. The work is extremely boring, unchallenging and due to understaffing and poor retention, can be voluminous.

Morale is extremely low and almost everyone is looking for another job. Given the the current economy, many people (especially those with families) feel stuck at Bracket.

Middle management is extremely poor. This includes Project Managers and Directors. Many of these individuals never received proper business training and wouldn't survive at any other legitimate companies.

Consider all other options before agreeing to work here. While they have nice location, and friendly people on the surface, the reality on the inside of the company is one of desperation and unhappiness. Look at other review sites to confirm this information for yourself.

Good company to work for
Project Specialist (Former Employee), Wayne, PAFebruary 19, 2013
Pros: benefits starts applying from the 1st day of hired.
Cons: upper management doesn't monitor much about pm's activities.
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.

Fast paced environment for young people
Project Specialist - Specialty Clinical Services (Current Employee), Wayne, PASeptember 3, 2012
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
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... 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. – less
