Brady has allowed me to develop both personally and professionally over the years.
Global Business Process Solutions Manager (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 4, 2016
A great organization to work for, very ethical and professional. A company that encourages continued education and growth and empowers their people to be bold and decisive. The culture is very team oriented and a cross functional environment. They expect excellence in customer service and in their product, to be best in class.
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) – Milwaukee – August 19, 2015
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.
Mechanical Engineer: ATD (Current Employee) – Milwaukee Wi – September 28, 2015
All my c-workers in the engineering department were very friendly and easy to get along with. Everyone is willing to help one another. Management is currently being restructured so there is a lot of nervousness in the air.
The People are great and the job is stable, but the company is stagnant.
Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 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.
Assistant Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – July 5, 2015
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.
Pay, people, environment
Too much mandatory overtime, exhausting, long time to get hired on
Brady Corp is a very fun and exciting place to work. in my 16 years with the company I have met many friends and learned many skills.

Brady Corp is a very fun and exciting place to work. In my 16 years with the company I have met many friends and learned many skills. what i really enjoy about Brady is all the extra events they offer employees. i would definitely say Brady is a wonderful place to work.
R&D Process Engineer (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – December 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, WI – November 2, 2014
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.
Box Maker (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 3, 2014
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.
Liberty to work according to effective work habits.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – November 6, 2012
Excellent place to work for young professionals. Lots of opportunities to grow and maximize potential in the R&D and Finance Leadership and Development Programs. Brady has a fairly flat structure so you have the ability to make an impact at any level. The management team uses Voice of Employee to get feedback and implement suggestions based on topics that are important to the employees.
Senior management needs to provide better strategic direction and vision for future. Finally, Brady could use more entrepreneurs to invigorate growth and drive innovation.
Strategic Account Manager (Current Employee) – Williamsville, NY – July 8, 2013
It is your typical Corp office setting. Set hours, OK benefits, small base pay. The only down side to the company is the management. They try and put a strategy in place, then never stick to it. There also seems to be a heavy turn around every 2 years. They also switch your account base around every 3 months. So you just start to make grains in your territory, and then they are gone. Overall, it is a tough place to work.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – November 13, 2013
The people are what make Brady a great place to work. Everyone is very friendly and always offer to help out where needed. The company provided on-going training for products and processes but the cross department communication was fair to poor.
Well established, locally based company with great people and good benefits.
Great employees, poor management and growth potential
Sales/Marketing (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – July 1, 2013
My coworkers were great at this company. We always supported each other and worked together. The company pays well and the benefits are pretty standard compared to other companies in the area. Work/life balance is good as well. Never a need for excessive working from home or late hours.
The management always changed a lot due to restructuring of teams, project and jobs. It was difficult to get things done with managers changing so often. I was there for more than four years and while I worked hard toward a promotion, there were not positions available for me to move into. Training was only rarely and selectively offered as well.
great coworkers, good work life balance
weak management, lots of reorganization, little growth potential
Company that is truly dedicated to the growth of its workers
Senior Multi-Media Designer (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – November 12, 2012
I've been employed with the company for over a decade now and have been very pleased with my time spent here. Brady has proven to me on may occasions that it is truly dedicated to the growth of its workers and has helped me greatly in developing skill sets that will be indispensable for my career path.
