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

    Pros

    New, young, fresh management looking to build a better place to work, learn and achieve, but always with an eye towards a better personal and professional life. Growth and positive evolution is the game and will be achieved both organically and through continued acquisitions.

    Cons

    With growth comes change; re-learning, re-thinking, re-working, so must remain open to the ever changing pace and demands of such an environment.

    Pros

    Great people who are patient and polite. Good laid back atmosphere. There are many opportunities for travel to neat locations.

    Cons

    Egos can fly high when due dates get close and the blame game gets played occasionally. Often a lack of work to go around.

    I worked at Belcan full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Started off great, lost it's class since Lance and Tom stepped into the Win office.

    Cons

    Bunch of losers as Managers. Managers have no class, bad language, discriminate against age and gender. Just interested in THEIR bottom line AKA bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Fire them all (Managers)!

    Pros

    Freedom to work when you want depending on what contract you are on, relaxed atmosphere, great bosses in my experience

    Cons

    Pay isn't great, especially for the area costs. Pretty high turnover, below average benefits. The idea here is to grab people out of college to gain experience.

    Pros

    Great people, great office environment

    Cons

    Too much change without strategy that is easy to understand by the masses.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring so many VP's and Directors. It appears to your employees to be almost comical the rate at which they are being hired while business is being lost. Bad perception implies poor leadership.
