- 3.0Dec 22, 2015Senior EngineerCurrent Employee, more than 3 yearsGrand Rapids, MI
Steady work, good coworkers and culture. Steady challenges and occasionally interesting work. Great first job.
Low advancement potential. Limited paid vacation (2wks until 5 years). Limited customer base and poorly compensated contracts limit salaries. Main office provides poor communication and support (IT/HR) to outlying offices.1

Company Culture. Work/Life Balance. Salary and Benefits. Employees treated fairly.
Executive Leadership is directionless at times, and doesn't communicate with its employees on a regular basis. Could use more regional teamwork- branches operate autonomously and most don't know what each other is working on. Privately held firm, so very little room for advancement/promotion.

They handled the necessary HSE paperwork and logistics required at some large employers
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.1

Great opportunity to gain experience. Flexible work schedule
Sub-par salary ( outsourcing company)

The flex schedule is a nice benefit. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this company
Salaries and below average and a lot of people take advantage of the relaxed environment. The people that take their job seriously have to make up for all the people that don't care.

Huge network of aerospace companies accessible via Belcan. This allows high mobility if desired and job security.
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).3

Great coworkers, upper management is very transparent, clear company growth path, better commission structure now
a more competitive base salary would be nice as would setting a clear growth path. work/life balance for anyone in recruiting is always an issue.

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.
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.1

* Flexible schedules: Once you've been around for a few months, you can pretty much set your own schedule as long as your customer is satisfied. * Paid overtime for full-time (direct) employees: Working overtime somewhat makes up for the low salaries. There's usually enough projects running that you can work as much (or as little) overtime as you want. * Middle management is actually technically competent: While there is a lot of promotion from within, there is no fast track to management, so the bad managerial candidates tend to get weeded out.
* Salaries well below national average: This is an outsourcing company. Other companies hire them because they are cheap. * Lots of mind-numbing work; challenging projects are few and far between: Don't expect to learn much if you're an experienced professional. Recent college graduates will learn a lot at first but should move on after 3 years. * Very few exceptional engineers; lots of mediocre performers: If you like a laid-back atmosphere where you can talk about non-work-related topics for a few hours each day, this is the place for you. Be prepared to work with a lot of geriatric engineers who can never seem to change their passwords successfully. * Stone age technology: Sharpen your Windows XP, IE6, and Office 2003 skills.4
