    I worked at Belcan Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was given a lot of time to develop business for the company, and I did what I could to maintain it with help from the home offices. They allowed me to hire good people and work with the customer to gain their trust and satisfaction.

    Cons

    Like most companies not based in California they are ignorant of the law and corporate HR doesn't take advice from the field who live and work here. They have a "good ol' boy" atmosphere which affects the morale negatively and had one very talented team member leave for a better position. It also caused loss of work and prestige for the on-site team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a presence in California with management professionals.

    Management needs to work with the employees to understand what is going on and work with them to achieve their career goals.

    I worked at Belcan Corporation as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone was very nice and helpful when I needed help with paperwork and/or benefits.

    Cons

    Ionly worked for the Company for a short time even though I was in that position for years prior. I was separated from the company due to having to miss work because of illness and my son was diagnosed with a serious illness that is now under controll.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish that I would have been talked to more and given another chance since all my work was always done and done corrrectly even when I had to miss work.

    I worked at Belcan Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Good team, decent pay. Work was interesting sometimes, and sometimes not. But the team was not trusted by the customers with heavy duty engineering tasks. That is the nature of contract work though.

    Cons

    Raises were poorly handled. Office was dingy and upper mgmt. did not make a real effort to clean it up. Offering some small perks instead of being stingy would have made a big difference in morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    base raises on performance alone, fire and certainly do not give raises to nonperforming individuals.

    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.
