I worked at Belcan Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The pros:
1. Great people to work with as far as engineers go
2. If you have the right manager the job will provide a lot of flexibility with hours
3. Decent starting pay and overall it was a good starting job for the first 3 years out of college

Cons

The cons:
1. The management is at best non-observant and at worst gossipers who attack engineers personally
2. There is absolutely no VISION to get behind here...this is just a job
3. Once you are beyond the first 3 years, raises are gone and they do little to keep employees
4. Because of lack of leadership and bad work culture the morale among employees is very low
5. You can be sent home without pay at at any moment even if you are doing good work
6. Management will NOT look for work for you, you will be expected to find work to stay billable
7. Hope you like the word billable, it's the only word that matters
8. If the manager doesn't like you as a person make sure not to have a death in the family or get sick or injured, all sick pay and bereavement pay is manager discretion

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Share a vision with your employees, treat them with some respect, reward good work, and show the employees that you actually want to keep them. Stop the gossiping among management. Stop the personal attacks on engineers that is not performance related. Train the managers better to be able to handle engineers better.

    Pros

    Good starting place to put on your resume. Your tasks can be good to get an idea of the corporate environment.

    Cons

    You work wherever they place you but have to remain imployed by them regardless of where your position is at. They can change you any moment so you have to be very flexible. They are always on your back too to make sure "their client is happy". Could be good or bad depending on how independent you like to be.
