    Good start but long term is case-by-case

    Pros

    The community of coworkers across the office & disciplines is nice, along with working directly with P&W down the road. On site P&W visits vary by department. If you want to get some insight in engine maintenance then the aftermarket services is a good start. Also helps being able to dive into and absorb new information. A lot of good info just past the surface details.

    Cons

    Staying here for a couple of years will make things feel a bit stagnant if you don't explore options internally. The monotony will get to you. On site P&W training has not been a thing since Covid. This training adds a lot to your work if it involves direct association with an engine. Post-covid workplace has an uneven feel about it. Remote working is still possible, however there's been an ever pushed back cutoff date from P&W that makes things unnerving. Especially since Covid has proven that remote work is efficient. Working in the office remains an option, but be aware that getting remote work set up takes time.

    Pros

    - Large company with access to some great projects at large OEMs and the government - Seems to be a good training ground for a junior engineers

    Cons

    - Owned by Private Equity and their decisions seem very focused on producing profits for PE, not the health of Belcan, their staff, or their customers - They don't understand DEI - In general, pay is below market as are benefits - They talk about being employee focused but the benefits and treatment don't match the words

    Don't Trust Them

    Pros

    • They have a program where an employee can purchase up to an additional week of PTO. Payments are automatically made from each paycheck, so you don’t have to pay a lump sum.

    Cons

    • This company has absolutely no problem with bait and switching a job. I was told I would be working as a repair engineer, with a secondary responsibility of working as a tooling tryout technician. The entire position devolved into this secondary role, and had absolutely nothing to do with engineering responsibilities. It was more of a supply chain warehousing position. The fact that this company, and it’s poor excuse for managers, felt okay with lying to a candidate about the position they would be working, knowing that they would move half way across the country for, speaks volumes to their moral standards. For anyone considering a position with this company, look elsewhere. • Pay is pretty low, especially considering the area.
