    I have been working at Belcan Corporation

    Pros

    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.

    I worked at Belcan Corporation

    Pros

    Excellent Contract position at an Outstanding corporation, was able to drive to goals and provide project status.

    Cons

    The destination from my home was 26 miles one way, plus over 15.00 in tools daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the training, 5S, standard work, quality metrics, and keep pace with any changes in milestones, and have ability to negotiate line time and / test time and resources, I liked working there. Good people.

    I worked at Belcan Corporation (more than 10 years)

    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.

    Contractor at client site

    Current Employee - Anonymous
    Current Employee - Anonymous

    I have been working at Belcan Corporation

    Pros

    Payroll is efficient with no issues
    Training requirements are proactively addressed
    Belcan's relationship with the client site is very good and constantly managed
    Belcan doesn't add complication to the job- no micromanagement
    Pay is very good, as is the overtime policy

    Cons

    Career advancement isn't a priority
    Vacation "time" is stagnant and low
    No 401k match
    No help available for work issues...told generalities whenever an issue is brought up
    Benefits are expensive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to give more feedback to the on site Contractors from the Client site. We are generally in the dark about what to improve upon and what we're doing well.

    A better vacation policy would increase morale.

    I have been working at Belcan Corporation as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    They set me up with a quality position, and have a strong history of placing their interns into full time positions upon completion.

    Cons

    None so far, to be honest I haven't interacted with Belcan much once the initial placement process was complete.

    I worked at Belcan Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Lot of great, smart people. They don't discriminate against older workers. Its a consulting environment with lots of change.

    Cons

    Some of the managers seem unqualified and downright incompetent. They are like getting stuck in traffic on a freeway and you can't get around them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the qualifications of your project managers, rotate and re-assign them to do other functions so they get a feel for dealing with issues they themselves can manage.

    Be nice to be proactive when contracts are expiring to try to find new opportunities for contractors.
