    Pros

    Very positive thinking, bright individuals. Never did I feel like the smartest person in a room. People are pushing you to become better. Huge opportunities to grow within organization.

    Cons

    There is not such thing as a 9/80 here folks. It's part of the culture. They are understanding though, and do recognize when there is an emergency. They are pretty flexible.

    Pros

    Steady work, excellent benefits, great work hours. Friendly environment, got along with almost everyone there. Company takes care of employees.

    Cons

    Poor management, manager uninterested in the day to day operations and more concerned about finding mistakes in employees as opposed to offering to help improve performance.

    Advice to Management

    Look closer into your managers' background and work history before hiring them. Show up for work on a regular basis as other employees are expected to do.

    I worked at Cameron full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cameron used to make you feel like family. They were a great company, but then they started bringing in leadership from the outside who know how to make Wallstreet happy, but don't know the first thing about running a quality company. One of those "leaders" in particular came in as a consultant for employee engagement and has somehow put the smokescreen over Jack Moore's (CEO) eyes. Ironically, Jack things this guy is great, but he's really a narcissistic turkey who has been really good at disengaging employees - just the opposite of what he was hired to do. I will say that he's been great at cutting employees during the downturn...so he is good for something after all.

    Cons

    As long as Cameron continues to bow to Wallstreet, only thinking about making next quarter's numbers instead of looking longterm at how employees will feel about the company and in turn how customers will perceive the company, Cameron will continue to decline. As for Career Opportunities; Cameron used to promote from within. However, in the lat five years or so they really started bringing outside people into the company to lead. Long-term employees know they don't have any real hope for moving up.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the A-hole CAO and send him packing back up North. He hates Texas anyway.

    I worked at Cameron full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good when the business cycle is up and not good when business cycle is down.Good benefits and pay.Good when we had management who would reward hard work.The benefits and wages are good, healthcare and 401k are also very good.The management who drives the front lines are reputable people and work hard to get bottom line. Production numbers are the most important goal at Cameron.The safety and well being at Cameron is also important. The experience of working in a amanufacturing plant is rewarding by learning the product and processes.

    Cons

    too many projects from IE and useless time wasted spent in meeting when everyone did not need to be there.The plant is run thru Industrial Engineering to squeeze every bit of process improvement that can be made, sometime comprising safety to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do not move people around who are director's family to boot out employees who know the job and industry. Review who has done the job and quit playing favorites.No loyalty to employees who have sacrificied for the company.

    I think Cameron could stand to be more organized.
