    I have been working at Belcan Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility helps a lot. Have been able to get a raise while here. Laid back environment. Friendly people. Several locations.

    Cons

    Once you're in, you're essentially stuck. Can't transfer to another office. Work is inconsistent. Manager unaware of what is going on half the time. Pay is below average. Very little opportunity to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get training in order for downtime

    I worked at Belcan Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was given a lot of time to develop business for the company, and I did what I could to maintain it with help from the home offices. They allowed me to hire good people and work with the customer to gain their trust and satisfaction.

    Cons

    Like most companies not based in California they are ignorant of the law and corporate HR doesn't take advice from the field who live and work here. They have a "good ol' boy" atmosphere which affects the morale negatively and had one very talented team member leave for a better position. It also caused loss of work and prestige for the on-site team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a presence in California with management professionals.
