Technical Contract Intern

Contract Technical Intern (Current Employee)
Winston-Salem, NC (US)

I have been working at Belcan Corporation as an intern for less than a year

ProsThey set me up with a quality position, and have a strong history of placing their interns into full time positions upon completion.

ConsNone so far, to be honest I haven't interacted with Belcan much once the initial placement process was complete.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Interesting, positive, sorry to see it end.

Engineering Consultant (Former Employee)
Indianapolis, IN (US)

I worked at Belcan Corporation full-time

ProsLot of great, smart people. They don't discriminate against older workers. Its a consulting environment with lots of change.

ConsSome of the managers seem unqualified and downright incompetent. They are like getting stuck in traffic on a freeway and you can't get around them.

Advice to Senior ManagementReview the qualifications of your project managers, rotate and re-assign them to do other functions so they get a feel for dealing with issues they themselves can manage.

Felt like a Dead End Job, with No Growth Potential

Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
Rockford, IL (US)

I worked at Belcan Corporation full-time for more than a year

ProsCompany is located in many locations, and there are many good people to work with at the company

Cons> Little, if any, Growth Potential
> Too little vacation time and too many worked holidays
> No decision making power on projects
> Always at the Mercy of the Contract Holder of the host organization

Advice to Senior ManagementGet jobs for people that are more permanent, and add vacation time! You work your employees too hard, with little reward

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Belcan is an ok place to work.

Payroll Administrator (Current Employee)

ProsThe pay is a little more than some places in staffing in town. Other cities offer more than Belcan.

ConsThere is no room for growth. If you want to do the same job for 20 years you are good.

we may as well be cattle going to slaughter

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Hartford, CT (US)

I have been working at Belcan Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

Proswas decent until Ralph passed, all downhill after that.

Consbad 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 Senior Managementsee above, follow Ralphs management concept.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
