    A very average place to work

    Nov 28, 2022 - Structural Engineer in West Palm Beach, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Flexible hours (can do 10-6 or 7-3 for example), very chill office environment. Good first engineering job in the field to get some experience.

    Cons

    Management is very against the idea of working from home even though everything can be done from home. Training is all on the job so it doesn’t really feel like you’re getting ahead, more like constantly in catch-up mode.

    Not half bad!

    Nov 3, 2022 - Controls Engineer in Cincinnati, OH
    Recommend
    CEO Approval

    Pros

    Belcan is the kind of place where you want to give it your all, because the rewards for doing so are so incredible. You grow a lot professionally, and the money isn’t half bad either!

    Cons

    I ultimately left because I’m looking for a more altruistic job. Has nothing to do with the company.

    Good Place to Start

    Sep 30, 2022 - Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The company is large and pretty stable with a good footprint in the contracting market. They are willing to give many good people an opportunity to learn and gain experience in different fields and as such, there are good people to meet. Benefits are pretty good and they match 401k and HSA if you choose that option. Hours are pretty flexible and work/life balance is good. Opportunities to learn many different things in the field if you move through multiple contracts.

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to the overall market and they generally cannot compete. Being a contractor, you have very little say in the goings-on of the business to which you are contracted. If you have a good attitude and have some good insight, sometimes your advice will be taken seriously, but overall, you're just a contractor who cannot produce any meaningful change within the organization you are contracted to; you do what the customer wants. Sometimes you can feel disconnected from the company, especially if you are working onsite with a customer every single day. As far as engineering is concerned, the experience distribution is bimodal; lots of new people and lots of really old, retired people. Your career advancement really only comes from non-technical roles if you decide to go that route (team lead, supervisory positions, etc.).
