Mailroom Coordinator (Former Employee), Branford, CT – March 30, 2015
Pros: great place, flexible
Cons: workforce reduction
I enjoyed my time at Brady. It was a team oriented workplace and challenging. I worked in several different departments in my time there. I started in the accounts payable department, then moved on to manufacturing and transferring to California. I was the team leader for 2 years there, then relocated back to Connecticut. Unfortunately due to the economy there was a major workforce reduction, which I was a part of. I do not regret my time there. I worked with many great people and made some really good friends.
Territory Manager (Former Employee), Houston, TX – February 5, 2015
Pros: innovative products, good people, great boss, compensation....
Cons: can't come up with anything.... :(
They are a thriving company with a product and service that is second to none. This is a company I should not have left. I loved my boss and trusted her and other within the company to help me reach my goals. Which I did!
I left based on a bad personal decision. Live and learn...

Sales Manager (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PA – February 27, 2014
When Brady purchased my previous employer they brought a much needed discipline and structure to the business. They recognize talent and strive to share these resources across several brands. This allows for movement within the organization and constant professional growth.
The office was very friendly and we all worked well together
Receptionist (Former Employee), AZ – November 26, 2013
Pros: loved my job
Cons: having to go out to get lunch sometimes, for other people.
I would sometimes open the office and turn on all machines. Make sure supplies were complete and up-to-date. I turned on all of the phones and check for messages. I learned a lot from this experience. How to operate all machines. They taught me their methods and how to fulfill obligations. Our office manager was very good. She kept our office running smoothly every day. If we had problems we could go to her and she was very tactful about solving any problem. There really was no hardest part, because everyone worked together. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting people and making sure they were properly attended to. I was assigned to decorate our office for every holiday, and that was a lot of fun.
Construction-Apprentice (Former Employee), San Leandro, CA – February 18, 2013
Pros: the money was very good as well as the people around me.
Cons: work is often up and down with construction so not steady work.
Brady Construction Company expects all workers to do there job at a pace to where you are being productive so they are benefiting from hiring you. Butt at the same time you have to be moving at a fast pace butt most importantly a Safe pace so you do not get hurt, however you need to pay very close attention to the task at hand You must do your work correct the first time, If not it is going to take twice as long to go back and fix mistakes that could of been avoided in the first place. The most difficult part of the job was finding a good comfortable pace to get my work done fast and correct the first time without trying to cut corners as well as practicing good job safety .
IT Administrator (Current Employee), Bismarck, ND – January 20, 2013
During a typical day, I work hard with only a short lunch break. Normally I work over 10 hours a day but I go home daily knowing that I have done a good job. Management is not bad but could be restructured. Overall it is a good place to work if you don't mind working long hours on salary.
