    I worked at Belcan Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Good company to work for, managers are on your side and do what they can to make sure you can do your job efficiently.

    Cons

    Working for the company direct but as a contract employee of another company had its challenges. Job security is based on the needs of the other company, not Belcan. When that company doesn't need you anymore, Belcan doesn't have any other option but to let you go.

    Advice to Management

    Always make sure the on site manager is solid and has at least a decent understanding of the product being put on the market.

    I worked at Belcan Corporation

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere. This was a great stepping stone to obtain experience as a new college grad. The firm really respected new ideas and allow younger employess to make an impact.

    Cons

    Lack of upward mobility. Many positions are just long term contract, created under a statement of work, so positions can technically be terminated at anytime at the discretion of the contractor.

    Pros

    Nice people. Great effort is put in place to structure the processes from Corporate. Good Benefits, flexible working hours.

    Cons

    Company doesn't follow PMI practices and doesn't train their Project Managers well. Diversity training is needed. Very few women and even fewer minorities.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity training and PMI training is needed since it is a "Project Management" business model.

    Pros

    Great starter job. Good place to learn how to behave in a professional environment. Good place to learn the ins and outs of drafting/designing/engineering. Best part is the flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Work flow is really inconsistent. No opportunity to move to other locations. Pay is low for experienced employees. Management is unable to keep things consistent. Several times I'm made to come in but not have work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep things steady! If it's foreseen that there won't be work, have training available. Let employees change location if need be!!!
