Pros

Good starting place to put on your resume. Your tasks can be good to get an idea of the corporate environment.

Cons

You work wherever they place you but have to remain imployed by them regardless of where your position is at. They can change you any moment so you have to be very flexible. They are always on your back too to make sure "their client is happy". Could be good or bad depending on how independent you like to be.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The projects did have a level of complexity that challenged engineers intellectual capacities. P&G projects were the most interesting from a pure engineering standpoint.

    Cons

    Zero lack of accountability from upper management. Never accountability from the top down, where the decision making power rests, always from the bottom up.

    Advice to Management

    Try putting people before profits and see how that impacts the bottom line. Once upon a time loyalty was initially owned by the corporation which , in turn, fostered longevity from employees.

    Cons

    - Poor management/worker communication (Belcan management has no idea what you do)
    - Performance reviews are done by Belcan management that once again does not know what you do on daily basis (kind of insulting)
    - Underpaid when compared to other CAT engineers
    - No bonuses or rewards for hard work
    - Poor company culture (no dedication to workers)
    - Common security clearance issues with CAT systems
    - Only 3 sick days per year (better stay healthy)

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to your engineers more frequently and oversee their projects instead of just counting heads and collecting money from CAT
