    Pros

    Good benefits, 401K contribution from Belden.

    Cons

    Too much management layers. Micro managing, "top down" communication style. Poor work life balance. Management does not care or show empathy towards employees. They manage too much with metrics rather than common sense.

    If one is interested in Lean Manufacturing then Belden is the place to work. They will train you and work with you so you understand and can impliment Lean at your facility.

    Cons

    Don't plan on retiring from Belden. Your life span at Belden is about 5 years. With there Force Ranking, at least one in your group will be cut every year and replaced with someone at a lower salary then the one who was cut.

    Advice to Management

    Stop moving jobs out of the US and bring them back. The knowledge and the dedication needed to continuously improve Belden is here in the US not Mexico or China.
