Sr. Assembler/Quality Assurance (Former Employee) – Duluth, GA – January 18, 2018
Title speaks for itself. Great company, with cutting edge technology, ruined by management. Benefits are good, and so is the pay. I would definitely recommend working here, as long as you have plenty of patience.
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – Rancho Cordova, CA – January 12, 2018
Lots of work - way more than your job description. Often enough you are working more than 1 persons job. Management can sometimes be very new and are only concerned about the bottom line, not your advancement, your pay, or sticking up for their employees. Culture is fine, laid back because they know they can make people do what they want and not pay them more. The Hardest part of the job is doing multiple peoples work without the title or pay to go along with it. Not really many enjoyable parts to the job except that you don't always have someone looking over your shoulder micro-managing you.
Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) – Duluth, GA – November 14, 2017
No two days are the same. If there is a way to make process more complicated than it needs to be Barco will find it.
If you are in sales, you are a golden child and are treated extremely well. If however, you are in an administrative position, expect to work hard and very long hours.
This company is very top heavy - too many managers and little support staff. The only time more people get added to the support staff is if someone quits or leaves.
The benefits are good, but there are very little perks. Even in times of record sales, there are no employee bonuses.Every year the company cuts back more and more. This company does not appreciate its support staff. Do not expect more than 2% raise a year.
Since the internal structure is not well supported there are fires that constantly need to be put out. Problems are not solved - only glossed over or temporarily patched. There is always a major eruption simmering below the surface.
Big Brother Belgium runs the company. The US sites are not as well staffed or supported as the sites in Belgium. They may be cutting edge in technology, but they need to have their internal processes examined and streamlined.
Medical Device Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Duluth, GA – June 15, 2017
Very easy and stable sales job with a very well known and respected product within the industry. Zero chance for advancement within the organization. Probably a good place to retire, not to start your job if you're looking for growth/advancement.
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – Rancho Cordova, CA – October 4, 2016
Great company to work for. Friendly towards employee relations and work life mix. Love working here. Generally a high amount of workload and high expectations to get it completed with not enough resources or people.
I worked in the maintenance department, purchasing both stock items as well as emergency items. Maintained equipment files and tracked man hours for our department. Was challenged with making changes to improve our ISO rating in my area, which we revised to a much easier system to follow and recieved excellent audits. I enjoyed being challenged with tasks that were needed to improve company performance. I had a great manager and worked wtih an excellent staff who were all determined to improve company performance. We took great pride and ownership in our positions.This job was a temporary position.
Barco is a great place to work. The work is challenging, varied, and rewarding.
Director of Training, Americas (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – January 10, 2014
I have a wonderful job that I really like. I get to do what I love to do and am left alone to do it to the best of my ability. I am respected for my knowledge and my capabilities and am often sought out for my ideas and input. The culture if very collaborative and supportive. My co-workers are bright and capable and there is a great sense of camaraderie and teamwork. I have grown in my business acumen and have improved my communication skills. The experience to date at Barco has been valuable, enjoyable, and a pleasure.
