    Pros

    The best place if you like to just seat at your desk and do the bear minimum. Good place to earn experience on what not to do on a professional environment.

    Cons

    No advancement. Non-sense and unnecessary day to day work without concept, art direction or creativity.

    I worked at Belzona full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You can make one or two good friends.

    Cons

    No professional growth. Titles are given away like candy to unexperienced people, which is a disrespect for people that actually have the experience to do the job AND went to college for it. Constant intimidation. The actual owner of the business hates it, and it shows and well known among employes, so the wife has to take over. Unfortunately the wife has no people or management skills. Good, talented people leave the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in a real management team. and owners, stay home.

    Pros

    Just a very few good professionals with whom you can actually communicate in a rational and at an intelligent level. They usually don't last in the company, neither will I.

    Cons

    Everything that could be wrong about a company can be found here. The un-prepared and inexperienced people are given key positions, making everything worse. I have discrimination, harassment, bulling, improper language, constant metal torture by bringing down and embarrassing employees publicly. No way to progress. Constant crisis. Unfortunately, this review is as true as the other reviews, about this company. Good people need to work too so they subject themselves to this type of environment. Very sad!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get professional couching on how to manage people, learn how to create a positive working enviroment. Learn motivational skills and how to respect others.

    Pros

    Manufactures a good end product.

    Cons

    Within a 6 month period, Belzona's owners have eliminated all senior management/employees who positively influenced the company, and replaced them with individuals who are desperate enough to deal with all the lunacy that takes place on a day-to-day basis. Management is aware of the economic situation affecting our country, and they use this to their advantage by intimidating and exploiting its employees/distributors. Do not be fooled by appearances, Belzona has the worst culture of any company I have ever been employed in.

    I worked at Belzona full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good sales training, very good products (but not as fantastic as they believe), great product application knowledge, some nice people.

    Cons

    Below market pay, bonuses quite tough to achieve, big accounts on territory are not available (given to KAMs), very target driven (number of appointments, quotes, sales). Result is a high turnover. People generally leave for higher pay elsewhere. Lots of cold calling. It certainly sharpens up your selling skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about transitioning to a more contemporary sales organisation. As others said, owners should butt out and let professional managers manage.

    No room for real progression there, unless you have the time to be exploited

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

    Pros

    Some! good people there. Some! good products. Nice variety of distributors from different cultures. Lots of potential for developing sales if it weren't so hard to get the message across.

    Cons

    Most distributors won't attend events if the presidents partner is there. All you read elsewhere is actually true. the harassment, discrimination etc. Dishonest managers... Staff surveys get faked. A lot of talk and no action. Fat cats sitting on paycheck unwiling to optimise. over 100 employees left in the space of 3 years from only 2 out of 4 sites. Also, an employee with a case of cancer in his family wasn't given time off to check for bone marrow treatment - had to take it as a holiday and this guy was THE most loyal, overtimer, training nucleus and kindest person that they had. He is also gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Don't dismiss everything you hear. Keep true to your word.
