I worked at Belden

Pros

Focus on Lean Management and improving efficiencies

Cons

They don't walk the talk regarding their Belden values
They don't show appreciation to their employees often enough
They need to get the people piece right and be consistent with open, honest dialogue

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more respectful of your people and show appreciation for their contributions. Make certain your actions are consistent with your cultural values and that they are not posters on the wall of the office.

    Belden Management: Disrespectful of employees.

    I worked at Belden

    Pros

    There aren't many good, much less best reasons to work for Belden. A good reason would be decent wages and benefits. If you can tolerate inept management.

    Cons

    I have absolutely no respect for Belden and their division management teams. For all the questionnaires and surveys the employees are forced into participating, management still doesn't have a clue. Part of the problem is that most employees that are left are afraid to answer the questions honestly in fear of losing their jobs.
    I find it appalling that management would lower a ranking (evaluation) given by an immediate supervisor and doing so without asking his opinion. To say nothing of a manager listening to the accusations of a co-worker trying as usual to make herself look good. In all my years there, I've never had an unsatisfactory evaluation. But, after 20+ years of employment, I was discharged for poor work performance. I'm extremely disappointed with the Corporate Office for allowing underhanded schemes like this to go on in their divisions. Yes, Corporate management is aware of this situation and chose to do nothing.
    I guess I should be grateful that the local management "team" waited until I finished my chemo treatments before letting me go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people that have experience in actually running a wire manufacturing business. Excessive meetings do not solve problems that exist within the company nor do they it sell wire.

    Experience was great with CDT, not so good with Belden

    I have been working at Belden

    Pros

    Pay was decent and the yearly bonuses were a plus. The benefits were very good, including vacation and paid holidays.

    Cons

    My opinion of Belden is skewed due to being let go in a cost cutting move. Since the merger with CDT, employees have been laid off, some due to the recession, but many due to Belden's obsession with bottom line and share price.
    Employee morale is low, and everyone left is looking over their shoulder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back and talk to the CDT management team that you systematically eliminated after the "merger". They knew how to lead.
