Pros

Older employees are very good and most regional manager. Good products lots of spec position but losing that fast

Cons

Only two upper level are past old school Belden people. All the rest are from non cable industry and not know the business and seem to be wrapped up in being yes men to their upper managers.
Everyone I know would rather be working for someone else or can't leave because they are to deeply invested. They hire non cable industry people and lose good people to other cable companies

    Pros

    The legacy belden folks have their head on their shoulders. Other than that, compensation is fair, and benefits are pretty standard.

    Cons

    Untrustworty management and leadership. Empathy and candor is severely lacking. Run away if ever approached by this company ! It is difficult to find ONE happy and satisfied employee.

    Advice to Management

    Take a moment and talk to the employees. Not just hear and trust the lies that fall on your ears by middle management. Leaders are supposed to Listen as well.
