    Pros

    Good learning opportunities and exposure to customer companies.

    Cons

    As a engineering services company that performs contract work, the pay isn't competitive with some other large companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide opportunities for advancement and career growth or employee turnover will continue to be a problem.

    Pros

    Very lax on working schedule, no such thing as being 'late' for the most part if your an engineer. Everyone is willing and able to help you out at any point of time. Throws about two parties per year in the back yard with kegs provided.

    Cons

    Strict on the work area separation, in respect to different customers need different computers to access their networks. Very difficult for me to look for other jobs, I like it here to much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a gym room built somewhere for people to use before/after work.

    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.

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

    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.

    Former Employee - Project Manager in West Palm Beach, FL

    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.

    Decent job, good for entry level but not the best for long term

    Current Employee - Design Engineer in Raleigh, NC
    Current Employee - Design Engineer in Raleigh, NC

    I have been working at Belcan Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Good starting pay for entry level
    -Decent benefits (health, dental, vision, 401k, insurance etc.)
    -Flexible work schedule (variable arrival time and working from home occasionally)
    -OK training culture, some tuition reimbursement is provided if requested

    I give Belcan credit for being a decent place to work; for the most part everyone has a pretty positive and laid back attitude and as long as you are willing to come to work everyday and put in some good effort managers will do their best to support you.

    Cons

    -No pay growth (no raises since I've been with the company)
    -Below average paid holidays (only 6 vs. a more traditional 9 or 10), this can lead to burnout especially if you are on a tough or fast paced project and need some recuperation time.
    -Can be unstable for long term employment, Belcan provides contract engineers/services to large companies and in the case of a downturn Belcan people will be cut/laid off first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Consider giving employees a few more days off per year, maybe 2 or 3 floating holidays, burnout can be an issue without some extra time off.
    -Give raises and bonuses, especially when employees are very busy and have added projects and stress. It's very hard for people to continue working hard if there is no incentive in place.

    Pros

    Company structure, benefits sometimes available, good people. If they have a contract where you fit in, you could be placed.

    Cons

    Little support from management, low pay, Hours worked with profit taken off top of your rate vs theirs. Little emphasis convincing customer to improve processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop experts at helping the customer improve their broken processes
