    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.

    Awesome place to collaborate and improve processes. Great employee benefits and positive outlook on the future even with new changes.

    Limited work life balance offer employees ways to work, too many locations, need to consolidate, no major processes in place yet.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more flexible work options.

    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 have been working at Cameron full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong product mix keeps the company stable despite specific market set backs.Lots of really good people with decades of industry experience and connections. Open to change even if they can't pull it off.

    Cons

    Frequent strategy redirection makes it difficult to accomplish any significant change - other than on the org chart. Recent layoffs were really heavy on the older/experienced employees, leaving the organization thinly staffed with too many junior people. Focused on short term financial savings instead of long term strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Interface more with employees than outside consultants. It will save money, probably provide more meaningful/sustainable results and show you mean it when you say your employees are valuable.

    I have been working at Cameron full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good product. God engineering and quality. Most of the people are nice.

    Cons

    Do not expect to advance if you do not have a college education. Upper management changes all the time. Lots of pressure to sell product that you know nothing about. Cameron buys companies and refuses to learn the market. This company is great for the young professional not the career person who has been in the industry for 25 plus years. A company should be run by the market of sales not finance an inventory. Quarterly budgets must be met. Too much time is waisted on stupid needless reports to finance. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting the young college grads to fast. Your alienating the seasoned veterans. Lighten up and let the salesmen sell! Tell finance to back off. The slugs.

    Pros

    Sound core values. Employer matched 401k to 6% + 3% retirement. Good health care package.

    Cons

    Found high discrepancy between salaries - will try and get as much from you for as little pay as possible. Little chance of being promoted from within - seem to like bringing in ex military from outside for supervisory positions, or college grads.

    Advice to Management

    You have a great deal of talent already - invest in those who are already here and pay them what they deserve.

    It is great to be part of a growing company

    When in management treat everybody equal.
