    I have been working at Belcan Corporation as an intern (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits with lots of perks such as vacation, holidays, retirement, and group healthcare. Northern suburban location is ideal.

    Cons

    traffic can be very congested near the mothership. Also, a restructuring of management has kept many in the dark

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a great team. Learn to develop your squad and promote from within. Keep assessing the corporate landscape to find new opportunities.

    I worked at Belcan Corporation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Both coworkers and superiors were great to work and talk with. There are opportunities to expand what you can work on if given the effort and interest to work.

    Cons

    Because the work is based upon contracts with clients, employment and workload can be relative to how well they are doing on obtaining work contracts with those clients. Related to this, promises and examples of advancement or transfer are not always able to be followed up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Superiors proved to be personable when talking to them about various work-related issues, and definitely consider them to be good bosses.

    No sense of leadership. Low employee moral.

    Listen to your employees. Hire a person that can converse and get to know your employees so they are left feeling alienated.

    They are a very laid back, yet extremely professional company. They allowed me to choose my own hours so I could finish my college degree and paid me a very good hourly wage too!

    Cons

    Working in different time zones made it difficult to communicate in a timely manner with supervisors.

    Pros

    Experienced technical team leaders manage smaller teams of younger qualified members teaching and acting as coaches throughout the work process.

    Cons

    Younger members of the team may have to work for several years to gain the experience needed to qualify as a technical lead. This is because of the OEM requirement that all leaders hold the credentials necessary to lead a team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and help grow the customer base at key locations.
