    "Experience was great with CDT, not so good with Belden"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pay was decent and the yearly bonuses were a plus. The benefits were very good, including vacation and paid holidays.

    Cons

    My opinion of Belden is skewed due to being let go in a cost cutting move. Since the merger with CDT, employees have been laid off, some due to the recession, but many due to Belden's obsession with bottom line and share price.
    Employee morale is low, and everyone left is looking over their shoulder.

    Advice to Management

    Go back and talk to the CDT management team that you systematically eliminated after the "merger". They knew how to lead.

    Pros

    Decent Compensation and benefits. Good Products.

    Cons

    The management don't care about employees. They fire people left and right for no reasons...continuous turnover in upper and middle management, no growth opportunity until you have any connections with the management.Promotions are not based on performance but who knows who... run away when a recruiter calls about an opening. They will offer you a good package but GOOD Luck for job security .... good package is just short term...

    Advice to Management

    Think realistic and develop and communicate the plans and objectives to employees.
