    I worked at Cameron Compression full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, very good benefits, 401(k) match + 3%, time off matches with overall industry, great working group environment. Very little overtime expectations.

    Cons

    Management allowed lead times to grow to a point where sales trickled of and didn't adapt to changing conditions fast enough. Overall somewhat beurocratic of a place to work in Buffalo. Union shop, though willing to work and a relatively engaged workforce. Compensation is lighter than most locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adapt quicker, create think-tank groups which can improve the business at all levels. Better communicate.

    I have been working at Cameron Compression

    Pros

    Good pay, when there's overtime you can make a ton of money. Benefits are OK. The work is easy, your not killing yourself. Coworkers get along well and are easy to work with.

    Cons

    Union shop. Communication between shifts is terrible. No accountability or sense of urgency. Guys in there 70' s that are willing to die on the job before they'll retire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hard with the union but there needs to be some semblance of accountability. You need to be able to fire the dead weight without the union getting them there job back.

  6.  

    Too much favoritism ...

    I have been working at Cameron Compression full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, clean & comfortable work environment (machine shop)

    Cons

    Foreman with limited knowledge of machine shop duties, salary is either too low or too high depending on who you know,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to pay attention to the foreman/supervisors and see is they are treating EACH employee fairly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don’t burn your service guys out to fast. They need to get home at least once every two months.

    I worked at Cameron Compression

    Pros

    Kept busy, the technologies manufactured are interesting. the health care benifits are great. Overall a friendly work environment. Plenty of opportunities to interface with other departments.

    Cons

    Some lack of commitment to keep some equipment up to date. Not all supervisors are as well prepared for thier jobs as others. Subject to normal manufacturing pushes (end of month, end of quarter ets..)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commit more funds where necessary to keep equipment up to date. Ensure employee reviews are performed and actually reflect the employees performance.

    I have been working at Cameron Compression

    Pros

    The people are fantastic to work with. Majority of us work as a team to get things done. I have an excellent boss who helps get the job complete when needed. Our Boss works well with the employee and is always there with the door open to all of us. Our VP is also great. He takes time 2 or 3 times a week to visit us, to see how things are.

    Cons

    There is not many downsides working here.. Although I would like to know if our salaries are competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    WOULD LIKE BETTER INSURANCE THAT PAYS BETTER OVERALL
