    Pros

    Nice and helpful people. Positive atmosphere. Management is doing their best to constantly improve all aspects of the employee experience. Pay is fair and based on performance. If you're a good employee, you will be compensated and retained.

    Cons

    Growing quickly, but management does a decent job of informing employees about changes.

    Pros

    Awesome employer, great pay and always focused on creating policies in the best interest of the employee. I really love working here.

    They don’t micromanage you, You can focus on your professional specialization which only enhances their strategy for growth, employee development and pursuit of new opportunities. Belcan really puts the customer first.

    Cons

    None really, well I think the health plan is “decent” however could be enriched with benefits such as lower deductibles and an orthodontia benefits for adult employees.

    I worked at Belcan full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility on work schedule is a positive attribute

    Cons

    Recent focus on growth and profitability by the new owners has produced an atmosphere of people last. Excessive growth and expansion at the executive levels while people running the day to day business and producing positive results are laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the basics of People first, not last. You aren't walking the walk that matched your words.

    I worked at Belcan full-time

    Pros

    Rarely a shortage of overtime.

    Cons

    Breakdown in communication between management and personnel. Management is quick tempered and bullying mentality. Personnel is quickly ostracized and alienated if they disagreed with management. Continuous Improvement and constructive criticism is frowned upon. Management resistance to change. Human Resources will perceive you as a threat then a voice to be heard. Personnel are treated as second-class citizens in comparison to management. I do not recommend working there.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional, communicate, maintain a calm demeanor. Treat others how you want to be treated. Recognize achievements and reward individuals. Identify potential within your team strengths and weaknesses.

    Pros

    Many good, talented people and my team was one of the best I have worked with in the 15+ years spent in this line of work.

    Cons

    -Poor infrastructure/tools for personnel to effectively perform job functions.
    -Great messaging on appreciating talent and taking care of people; big fail in execution.
    -No justification for the top heavy executive staff and other non-essential overhead investments; actual working level overworked and under appreciated.
    -Bleeding talent - voluntary and involuntary.

    Advice to Management

    -Know what you are buying before you acquire the next company.
    -Understand realistically where the merged company sits in the market.
    -Make decisions, preferably good ones...but any decision is really handy.

    Pros

    Outsourcing provides better schedule flexibility, multiple PO's provide vast opportunities for work. Good for building experience in relevant field and building network connections.

    Cons

    The compensation is not competitive with outside companies for work with similar or same skill set. There are not a lot of growth opportunities within BELCAN.

    Advice to Management

    If compensation was more competitive Belcan could retain better talent.
