    I worked at Belcan for more than a year

    Pros

    Management is comprised of mostly people who are incompetent to do anything else in engineering, least of all management. What that mean is that they don't have a clue of what you are doing. To them, you are just a way to bill management hours. As long as you are doing they wouldn't want to know which way is up.

    Cons

    They don't know or don't care so you're stuck unless you have better offers. Remember this every day you come to work. Its a temp job and not permanent. Start planning your exit strategy the day you get in. There are better places to work no matter how incompetent you think you are.

    Advice to Management

    Either promote people who have an idea or don't do anything. Instead you promote idiots who promote more idiots and you do the math.
