    Approves of CEO

    I worked at BELFOR Group full-time

    Pros

    Flexible - allows employees to leave site when necessary, make up hours or use vacation. Allows employees to work from home if necessary or desired.

    Cons

    Zero possibility for advancement. No raises, or if there one, it is less that $.025/hr annually. Very low wage - especially considering the type of work and the business contacts that are necessary. In my department, the Supervisor/Manager was unclear and forgetful - not a good Manager. She would blame her failures on one person in the office.

    I worked at BELFOR Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not very many pros. They used to provide OT which was nice if you needed it, but then you have to work OT each week just to stay caught up.

    Cons

    Terrible management, no one listens to any advice for improving processes. Some employees are stuck in the Stone Age and prefer paper over digital which puts everyone behind given we live in a digital society. Unethical behavior and choices from management. An employee in our office tested positive for Covid and they did not close the office and get everyone tested because they showed symptoms a few days later after they were in the office. Belfor completely neglected the asymptomatic information from the CDC and created anxiety for employees.
