    Pros

    I like the fact you can grow in this company and head any direction, it is such a large organization that you will find something suited to your professional desire.

    Cons

    Well i think the leadership can take on a much more active role in the mentoring process I see such high mobility in the company that it is important to keep the legacy for the next generation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Good pay, 9% 401K matching, and health insurance. The company has grown quickly and is still struggling to be a real "enterprise" company.

    Cons

    Little to no flex time (i.e. have to take vac if you have a sick child), often middle mgmt is not qualified for their role, HR holds the company hostage (can't hire for positions even when money is in the budget). Quite a few IT staff have left/retired to get of the work situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New managers need training!

    Pros

    The pros to Cameron are the benefits (insurance, 401k, matching, etc), training, and location (worldwide). This is a great company for someone breaking into the Oil and Gas Industry; it will definitely give you a solid start.

    Cons

    Over the past two years, the company has moved from a hand's on, personal approach to leadership and has begun to rely upon Lean Six Sigma practices as a form of leadership. This has caused distance to form between employees and leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to interpersonal leadership practices.

    Pros

    Exciting industry, decent pay, training opportunities,

    Cons

    Poor communications from top regarding vision, fractured culture due to so many acquisitions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the vision and strategy, demand Cameron culture to be adopted at each of the acquired companies, make Intranet look and feel the same across divisions, adopt engineering change boards, develop a systems engineering approach
