    I have been working at Belcan full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pay and benefits aren't bad.

    Cons

    Management does not provide top cover, and there is far too much "please the customer" that circumvents good work being done according to regulation and requirement.

    Advice to Management

    Be more sensitive to employee needs, especially when there legal issues are involved.

    I have been working at Belcan full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very good work atmosphere. Good place for a fresh graduate or part-time retiree.

    Cons

    Not sure all employees are treated the same. Full time employees forced to spend time without pay.

    Advice to Management

    Used to be that your employees would be paid during down time between contracts. Now, for some groups Belcan stops pay the very day a contract has ended. Really, it seems that if you charge customers 2x what you are paying, us, you could cover us during short periods between contracts. Seems management wants to treat older employees as temp workers yet, expect us to be available at any time.
