    I worked at Belcan full-time

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers! Lots of projects! Great training on various projects! Diverse organization! Great recruiters! Possibility of becoming a direct hire. Close proximity to company!

    Cons

    May get downsized. More interaction with manager. Keep employees busy! Keep lines of communication open between managers and staff. Greet new hire by stopping by their desk and shaking hands so new employee can feel included in the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Open communication

    I have been working at Belcan full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company provided me with a number of opportunities before settling into my current position. They really wanted me to find the right position for me.

    Cons

    There is not an option to earn vacation time. So taking any time off is at your own expense. Also there is not a pay raise after a year of work.

    Advice to Management

    Management is tentative to their employees needs. They are available by email or a phone call. They respond quickly with needed information about your job and other company information

    I worked at Belcan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Once the poor performers and bloated contracts are sorted out, the company may actually do well

    Cons

    Poor integration; zero time spent learning about the newly acquired companies; turning in to a "butts in seats" contractor that goes after work beyond it's core competencies.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time on understanding the work and culture of the companies which you have acquired either than forcing them to fit the "hip" BGS mold. Get rid of the dead weight (on-call specialists) and legacy managers who have not been effectively reviewed for performance in many years
