    Great Growing Company

    Detailer/Designer (Current Employee) Blue Ash, OH (US)

    ProsLaid back, friendly people, good work environment. Been here 2 years and haven't had any issues with management or lack of work.

    ConsHaven't seen much in the way of Cons. To advance up, you just need to further your education.

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

    My experience was both good and not-so-good.

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) Washington, WV (US)

    ProsEveryone was very nice and helpful when I needed help with paperwork and/or benefits.

    ConsIonly worked for the Company for a short time even though I was in that position for years prior. I was separated from the company due to having to miss work because of illness and my son was diagnosed with a serious illness that is now under controll.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI wish that I would have been talked to more and given another chance since all my work was always done and done corrrectly even when I had to miss work.

    Good opportunity for the area, coworkers were great

    Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) Lexington, KY (US)

    ProsGood team, decent pay. Work was interesting sometimes, and sometimes not. But the team was not trusted by the customers with heavy duty engineering tasks. That is the nature of contract work though.

    ConsRaises were poorly handled. Office was dingy and upper mgmt. did not make a real effort to clean it up. Offering some small perks instead of being stingy would have made a big difference in morale.

    Advice to Senior Managementbase raises on performance alone, fire and certainly do not give raises to nonperforming individuals.

    Contractor at client site

    Anonymous (Current Employee)

    ProsPayroll is efficient with no issues
    Training requirements are proactively addressed
    Belcan's relationship with the client site is very good and constantly managed
    Belcan doesn't add complication to the job- no micromanagement
    Pay is very good, as is the overtime policy

    ConsCareer advancement isn't a priority
    Vacation "time" is stagnant and low
    No 401k match
    No help available for work issues...told generalities whenever an issue is brought up
    Benefits are expensive

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to give more feedback to the on site Contractors from the Client site. We are generally in the dark about what to improve upon and what we're doing well.

    A better vacation policy would increase morale.
