Years with Cameron: Almost 2 years
Cameron's Rotational Program is the best way to experience the company. I love the idea of this program. It is an extensive introduction to the company which helps you become very well rounded. It also provides insight into guiding your future career with Cameron. Every six months, we are rotated into a new position, requiring us to grow into a new role within operations. They include, but are not limited to, roles in materials management, quality, manufacturing engineering and supervisor roles. It essentially gives you a wide breadth of exposure to the differences between the groups and divisions of the company. It also allows for us to see the inner-workings of what makes a company like Cameron run. Personally, I feel that this experience has truly guided me towards a position where I know I will achieve my best and become successful.
This program has really done wonders for my confidence; with each project and each rotation, there are numerous new challenges. I have learned how to approach them proactively and create solutions that make a real difference. In the short time I have been in this program, I have already led a maintenance management initiative that will be implemented corporate-wide. It's extremely satisfying to know my efforts will improve plant maintenance for Cameron across the board.
I have seen my personal and professional skills develop, improve and grow exponentially. I also really like the variety I experience each and every day. I hope to continue to be in that environment after I complete my Rotational Program and start my role as a Six Sigma Business Leader (Black Belt). Cameron is a big company with lots of opportunities, and what makes it so unique is that it is still a close-knit company. That is very rare in a global organization. I am thrilled to have a future with Cameron and look forward to many things to come.

At Cameron, there's a lot of encouragement to grow and develop as a professional. Our size and our scope of products and services really allow you to find a job that suits you best. It also gives you a chance to build a career with an outstanding future. I started here young, and for me that allowed me to really identify my goals early and define my career choices.
I began as a Design Engineer with a lot of ambition. I took that drive and paired it with Cameron's many developmental tools. I also explored new and exciting options through their training and management programs. Over the years, I found myself advancing my career significantly as a Project Manager and a General Manager. Now as a Proposals Manager, I am continuing to represent the company. It feels great to deliver quality products and services to our customers. It gives me a tremendous sense of pride when I can get a job done and see the appreciation in my peers and customers.
I'm also proud to work for such an impactful company. Each day, Cameron is responsible for helping to protect the environment, while keeping life on the move through energy. Our R&D team is always innovating, designing and manufacturing to meet our customers' needs. In 2006, we introduced an all-electric subea DC tree/AET. This allowed for a hydraulic-free system that released no pollution into the sea. We were the first in the industry to introduce such an innovative, GREEN system.
Cameron is an excellent company. I've seen myself grow in my career and in my skills. Being part of a global company is also beneficial. I've had lots of international exposure. It's an eye-opening experience, both personally and professionally, to see other cultures around the world. At Cameron, you're always learning and growing, and if you have the ambition, you can accomplish anything. My next goal is to become a Director or VP, and maybe one day - the President of the company. I believe it's possible here. Cameron gives you the opportunity if you work hard at it.

I know personally my knowledge and skills have grown with every project and every person I interact with at Cameron. Our company's reputation is perfection and reliability. Therefore, we have to be flawless in what we do. We have to get it right the first time, and we usually do. But we're only human, so we rely heavily on each other and our training and experience.
My time at Cameron has really helped me discover new avenues for my career. There are plenty of opportunities for the motivated professional. I have the chance to expand on my current career path or use my experience to branch off to other groups. My talents have also led me to join our Safety Committee and First Response team. The knowledge I've gained from that alone has made a difference in my personal and professional life. I take pride in my work, but knowing what I do has an effect on the company and its people – that's a great reward.
Bottom line, Cameron is a strong company. I can honestly say I feel secure in my career. And even though the economy is a bit rough, I still am confident Cameron will be here tomorrow. We're going in the right direction and anticipating the future of the industry and of our company. But you have to prove your worth. The job we do requires excellence in all you do.
