    Good place to start but not so great to finish.

    I have been working at Bell Industries

    Pros

    Excellent culture and atmosphere, great mid level management, good autonomy if one works with reasonable insurance and the best HR staff I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Below standard pay rates, diminished benifits, company has not given raises for cost of living in years and does poorly on discovery which leads to less than profitable engagements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the business at least to a degree that generates success instead of saving dimes now to lose dollars later.

    I worked at Bell Industries full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers who give their very best and some who give their best to try provide leadership and moral character.

    Cons

    Top to bottom in every facet there is room for major improvement. You pick a category and its a fail. The issues are many could write a book if so desired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and practice what you preach, honesty is still the best policy.

    Pros

    Lower level team member are great to work with. I wish I was able to say something more positive, but the high churn rate is proof that there are changes that need to be made.

    Cons

    No personal growth, low pay, standard benefits. They have a 401k but the company doesn't contribute much, and at one time stopped making contributions, you could probably due just as well with an IRA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue clean the house.

    Pay increases are sad. It takes forever to top out with your pay. Needs to be better raises. Better insurance.

    I have been working at Bell Industries

    Pros

    It is a very diverse work place. You have people there from all over the world. You learn a lot about other cultures. The people there are all very nice and get along for the most part as far as the employees. Management is pretty nice for the most part. The work schedules are great! 4 10hr shifts or 5 8 hr shifts. Hardly ever any over time. No weekends or holidays. Day shift only. Very good for someone with small kids. All the benefits are pretty good. Sick pay, vacation and holidays.

    Cons

    The insurance is way too expensive! I pay the same for my spouse and 1 child as my coworkers pay for their spouse and their 3 or more kids. I think that is highway robbery. Especially when I make the same or less than they do. Some supervisors and or team leads do not show respect to the employees, they don't know how to talk to people. Management doesn't always treat people fairly. The pay is sad. It takes for ever to make top wage. It is merit raises but even with the best employee it takes for ever! You only get one review a year and lucky if you get a raise then. You get paid by weekly and 1/3 of my paycheck goes to pay for my health and dental insurance. I am thankful to have the insurance still yet but it needs to be better for what I have to pay for it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the mangers, supervisors and team leads take training on how to get along with associates, and employees. Have a peer review team. Check into better insurance. Give better raises.

    I have been working at Bell Industries

    Pros

    It located close to home and the Fashion Mall and fitness center are located right next door.
    Building has a wonderful of the entire city.

    Cons

    Being on the top floor of the building makes it a royal pain when they are conducting fire drills 17 flights down to the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it may be time to start contributing to the employee 401K and offering more oprtunities for training or remebursment for those taking job related courses.
