    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to what your founder instilled in the company. Being cheaper isn't always better. Invest more into your employees outside the bubble of corp.

    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Palm Beach Gardens, FL
    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Palm Beach Gardens, FL

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

    Pros

    * Flexible schedules: Once you've been around for a few months, you can pretty much set your own schedule as long as your customer is satisfied.

    * Paid overtime for full-time (direct) employees: Working overtime somewhat makes up for the low salaries. There's usually enough projects running that you can work as much (or as little) overtime as you want.

    * Middle management is actually technically competent: While there is a lot of promotion from within, there is no fast track to management, so the bad managerial candidates tend to get weeded out.

    Cons

    * Salaries well below national average: This is an outsourcing company. Other companies hire them because they are cheap.

    * Lots of mind-numbing work; challenging projects are few and far between: Don't expect to learn much if you're an experienced professional. Recent college graduates will learn a lot at first but should move on after 3 years.

    * Very few exceptional engineers; lots of mediocre performers: If you like a laid-back atmosphere where you can talk about non-work-related topics for a few hours each day, this is the place for you. Be prepared to work with a lot of geriatric engineers who can never seem to change their passwords successfully.

    * Stone age technology: Sharpen your Windows XP, IE6, and Office 2003 skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's not much to suggest. Belcan is the way it is because that's what its customers want. As long as the customers have somewhere to farm out low complexity work, Belcan will continue to hire mediocre engineers, and pay low salaries.
