Pros: camaraderie, work from home options, job security
Cons: high workload, disinterested management, high stress
Working at Brafton is a high-stress, low-reward experience. The company is a content marketing firm, meaning it produces custom content for various companies' websites to boost their positioning on Google, Bing, etc. Without a doubt, it is one of the leading companies within its field, but the inner workings and culture of the company are seriously – more... flawed.
Management seems to be incapable of handling the rapid growth of the company, and it is clear from the onset that the clients are valued much more highly than the workforce. As an employee, never expect to have the company on your side. In most cases, what the client says goes, no matter how unrealistic the request.
The work environment itself has its pros and cons. On the plus side, there is great camaraderie among employees and the opportunity for advancement is high if you're competent at your job. However, the day-to-day experience makes this difficult to enjoy. Don't expect to come in in the morning and be finished in eight hours. The workload typically demands putting in extra hours and often requires you to work some nights and weekends. There is no break room, so prepare to eat lunch at your desk most days. Most of all, don't expect to be proud of any work you produce. Quantity, not quality, is the name of the game at Brafton.
There are pluses to working at Brafton. The option to work from home almost any day of the week is nice. And the company does pay a liveable salary -- though it is by no means high, especially for those just coming on board. The cons generally outweigh the pros, however, and almost immediately it's easy to see why the company has such a high turnover. – less
