      A Wealth of Knowledge

      Apr 13, 2021 - Engineer in Cincinnati, OH
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Belcan has a very extensive knowledge base to learn from as a entry level engineer. I learned from more experienced engineers and had the opportunity to work with many on projects early.

      Cons

      Without a long term assignment/contract with a single company, work security felt less stable.

      Great Place to Work, Especially Early Career Engineers

      Feb 9, 2021 - Cfd Analyst in Cincinnati, OH
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Very flexible with working hours, work from home arrangements, etc. -Very intelligent, qualified, and dedicated colleagues and supervisors -Opportunity to work on interesting projects in the Aerospace Industry -Usually paid software training time in between projects, especially for early career -40 hour work week, but possibility for overtime. -Generally positive work environment, I NEVER felt like anyone was out to get me or throw me under the bus unfairly

      Cons

      -Contract engineers will rarely to never have full "ownership" over the projects that they work on and will always be very subordinate to their customer...not the best circumstances to exercise independent creativity, if that is what you are after -Comments here to the effect that there is little opportunity for advancement are probably true, however, the flip side of that is a fairly streamlined chain of command on the Belcan side. You generally know who you have to keep happy. -The paid by the hour system can be awkward... you can't just expect to work extra catch-up hours if you get behind or something, and it's very difficult to do anything to stand out if your hours are capped. -Possibility of getting furloughed or even laid off if business is slow

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      For a short time, there was a VP over Operations who actually cared. Made a point of speaking to everyone and made sure everyone felt appreciated. She was furloughed and apparently not coming back.

      Cons

      Ad hoc IT strategy, low pay, pay cuts cited due to covid that set most people back 5 years.

      Pros

      I liked working there due to the flexible work schedule and how close it was to my apartment.

      Cons

      The salary is lower than average. It is a good job right after college but there is no room for growth and rarely given a pay increase.

      Pros

      Was ok for a year or two.

      Cons

      Management changed and has gone to hell. Too much micromanaging and won’t allow choice to work remotely, even after the world has evolved around it to allow remote work

      Flexible hours with lack of quality

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The flexibility working at Belcan was great, and the community of people was close knit.

      Cons

      The quality of work produced by the team was poorly done and delivered. At times there is unnecessary push-back from management towards customers regarding tasks not within the statement of work.
