    I worked at Belcan full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the experiences as I was contracted to UTAS. Everyone was nice. Pay wasn't great, but wasn't terrible.

    Cons

    As a contract engineer to UTAS, there was always a feeling of being an outsider and not part of the "real" team.

    Advice to Management

    Have any sort of gathering so that you feel part of some teem and not isolated. The projects were more than awesome, it was just a bit much when you had a differing take on things and no one had your back.

    I have been working at Belcan full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    From my knowledge of the market, the salaries offered are decent. As it is a company that "rent" you to a client, you have limited contact with the company. However, the contacts I had lately were very good and the personnel very helpful.
    I think it is a good company for a first experience of 1 to 2 years.

    Cons

    Insurance are not very good. Evolution with this company stays relatively limited.
