I have been working at Belcan full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

was decent until Ralph passed, all downhill after that.

Cons

bad management, after changing op manager, he brought in what was to be a cust. service mngr, not checking into it, belcans main customer didn't want anything to do with him since they had just let him go for several performance reasons, 5 weeks of salary and signing bonus down the drain before they figured it out even after employees warned them before he came.. Brilliant. then layed off several hard workers to save on overhead. If you are not completely billable then they get rid of you.

Advice to Management

see above, follow Ralphs management concept.

    I worked at Belcan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, Salary, 401K, Vacation

    Cons

    Lack of experienced managers, Inadequate training, Disrespectful to employees

    Advice to Management

    Belcan's business plan should not be "people peddlers" (as one vice-president has said). Your employees are your product. You make money of their experience and service. Look out for your employees first and customers second. There are plenty of customers, but not a lot of quality engineers like the ones that I worked with.

    I have been working at Belcan as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    at first you are treated good then as time goes on they dont have time for you

    Cons

    makes promises and don't follow thru such as bonus and all paid Holiday sometimes you get it sometimes you dont make you feel you will get hired at a job work hard and it never happens and if there is a problem they ask other people and bring people in it that dont know whats going to and to much gossip

    Advice to Management

    make things more clear and hire more office people on job sites that are belcan reps so the ones there are not over worked and they dont take it out on employees they make us think they dont think have time for us and take stuff the wrong way and some people are treated better than and if you say something if makes you think you will be fired for speaking up stuff happend a few months ago and it makes you worry that if you say something or speak up then you are the trouble maker and its not fair
