    Not Very Supportive

    Aug 28, 2021 - Process Engineer in Washington, DC
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They handled the necessary HSE paperwork and logistics required at some large employers

    Cons

    They did very little to advocate for the personnel that they placed at companies. They didn't fight against sudden furloughs and significant pay cuts last year during covid. They didn't fight for any raises once the job market and industry recovered this year. They seemed very ineffectual and didn't seem to do much to earn their cut of my salary.

    Poor Leadership

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    It's a company, I suppose.

    Cons

    Belcan aquired Kemtah, Intercom, and Schafer. Now it's a race to the bottom to see how quickly they can slash benefits and pay.

    I like my job just not all the aspects

    Mar 3, 2018 - Validation Test Engineer in Cincinnati, OH
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Working with your customer and getting real experience in the industry. Flex hours that, even though your managers don't understand what that is.

    Cons

    Lazy unexperienced management. HR that only protects the company, fails to assist the employees. This is the kind of place where the manager is often a parent of another employee... Low pay in an expensive area.

    Great beginning job or job to have with a family

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great flex hours, diverse projects if desired, paid overtime, relaxed atmosphere

    Cons

    Pay raises are either small or non-existent no matter the quality of work by the individual, too reliant on one customer for work (GE)

    Pros

    Great company to work for out of college, good benefits, and unless you literally don't do any work its hard to get fired.

    Pay is not competitive at all and raises are very small.

    Terrible communication

    Jan 19, 2021 - Greenhouse Technician 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    Bad communication about time reporting, holidays, and contract renewals. They do not offer ACA-compliant healthcare. They will try to pay you the absolute minimum and raises are not an option. Explore your options before signing a contract as big corporations will work with multiple contracting agencies, and there are ones that offer better benefits.

    Great engineering team, poor upper management

    Feb 15, 2021 - Engineer in Glasgow, Scotland
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Some really talented engineers working at the company with decades of knowledge and experience. Good office culture and flexible working was brilliant. Engineering managers really switched on but limited.

    Cons

    Poor pay, company also muck about with bonus pay dates to suit them and in effect reduce pay. Upper management, specifically HR are terrible - they make all decisions regarding salaries and bonuses despite never having ever met any employees as they are based in another office. Engineering management have their hands tied and keep losing really talented valuable engineers because HR and senior management wont pay engineers what they're worth - ultimately costing the company work in the long run. Zero money put towards employee development or training and company clearly have no desire to invest in their staff. Statutory minimum for nearly everything including pension, holidays and general T&Cs. Handelled the covid pandemic appallingly in the initial stages. Staff encouraged to work despite working being non essential.
