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.

    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.

    Pros

    Decent Compensation and benefits. Good Products.

    Cons

    The management don't care about employees. They fire people left and right for no reasons...continuous turnover in upper and middle management, no growth opportunity until you have any connections with the management.Promotions are not based on performance but who knows who... run away when a recruiter calls about an opening. They will offer you a good package but GOOD Luck for job security .... good package is just short term...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think realistic and develop and communicate the plans and objectives to employees.
