    Work Challenges for Outsource Engineering are getting better!

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Many pros: Stable company with steady growth for 50+ years; flexible hours with decent health benefits including a company matching 401k plan. Long term career opportunities at Belcan are steadily improving as outsource opportunitiesrm career opportunities at Belcan are steadily improving as outsource opportunitiesrm career opportunities at Belcan are steadily improving as outsource opportunities within Belcan's target industries expand. Outsource work often provides a lower stress work environment compared to other places I've worked. Employees at Belcan are also paid for all hours worked–there's no unpaid 'casual' overtime. It is true that Belcan's clients typically pay their employees more, but they also regularly work 50+ hours per week without any paid overtime. Getting paid for overtime at Belcan closes that salary gap significantly.

    Cons

    Belcan employees often do not get the same opportunities for career advancement and professional skill development that is available at an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). On the other-hand, the opportunities come anyhow for some highly skilled Belcan employees when they are given the opportunity to take a position at the OEM.

    New management is making a lot of changes and they're not all good

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    For corporate, I guess you could say new training's over the past year or so has been good but otherwise, pros are on an office by office basis because each is different. Luckily, our office is family oriented, flexible, and we all care about one another. Benefits are decent but could be better.

    Cons

    Corporate doesn't listen or care what employees think. No base raises in years to base salaries that are already below average. Commission structure that is not competitive. Benefits could be better. New management all comes from the same company and the changes they are making to Belcan is based on the structure of their former company. No bonuses, no more company wide contests or activities, offices no longer receive end of the year funds to donate to a charity of their choice. It used to be a family owned company and those values are gone.

    “Earning Trust – NOT APPLICABLE for Belcan India!!”

    Oct 13, 2020 - Senior Engineer in Hyderābād
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great Value and strong engineering base of the parent company in US and UK.

    Cons

    Earning Trust is the key principle of Belcan globally but it is never in Belcan India. Poor management of Belcan India failed to create trust worthy working environment till date. No transparency with associates and unethical policies from leadership team, results in high attrition rate. Many talented resources left Belcan mainly due to management and their poor decisions which was more towards their own benefit rather than company’s growth. Belcan India did not grow till date and always depends on US and UK teams for work. So many Section leads + Offshore Delivery Manager for just 100+ associates with very low utilization. As a result Belcan India is a sinking boat in an ocean with so many captains without actual workforce to save. When it comes for cost cutting in COVID – 19 situation junior engineers and skilled people who provided loyal support to company are removed. Overheads are still there as a burden to company watching how Belcan India is collapsing. The present associates who are still with Belcan India is only due to their own personal constraints (like Hyderabad location) nobody is happy. It’s suffocating working environment for associates who are having skills and looking for career growth.

    Good Opportunity

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Huge network of aerospace companies accessible via Belcan. This allows high mobility if desired and job security.

    Cons

    The nature of the contracts Belcan has with employers means Belcan employees often do full monotonous work. And of course low level employees don’t make engineer salaries (Belcan pockets the difference).

    Good Place to Start Career

    Sep 14, 2015 - Senior Engineer in Cincinnati, OH
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Belcan offers engineers straight out of college in an environment to learn quickly and leverage the experience of older employees in the organization. Young employees are offered the opportunity to take on responsibility that wouldn't be afforded to young employees at other companies.

    Cons

    Their business model doesn't support a path for engineers to advance up a technical track outside of management. This makes it difficult to retain engineers past the initial ~3 years from leaving college as the compensation structure can't compete.
