    Former Employee - IT Intern in Houston, TX

    I worked at Cameron as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Very friendly, flat organization, open-door policy kind of company. Got along very well with all employees, and it seemed like most people were happy to work there. Lots of learning opportunities, such as conferences, training, etc.

    Cons

    Not a lot of coding and development opportunities. There are some, but the division seemed somewhat removed or secluded from most of the IT group. I didn't get the impression that there were a lot of positions available for it. Also, did not do any programming whatsoever while there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organize the program better and try to listen to interns' preferences for the work they're interested in.

    Upper management is mostly in dream land, while there products are years behind competetion. Subsea trees business, Connectors & Controls are 5-10 yrs behind both FMC/Aker. Management also lost the edge in LWI to FMC.
