    Pros

    Cameron is a good place to start out. I started in the Global Rotational Development Program: Operations and I've gotten to know heavy manufacturing from the plant to the corporate level. It's challenging and rewarding and I've grown considerably along the way.

    Cons

    The people I've interacted with are pleasant, but feels like many people are stuck in their ways and things don't seem to change all that much for the better. Pay is average, but benefits are good.

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Company as a whole is great just not the Berwick Plant

    Cons

    Management cant get their story straight. They give you the run around there are no reviews at 90 or 180 days. Long hours make up for the low pay. Have to always redo someone else work. Cant get parts and they sub out your work instead of giving raises or reviews for the ones that can do it.

    Pros

    The work is steady and worth while. Each day brings a new challenge, and the people around me also help strengthen my capabilities.

    Cons

    It seems to me that management is over worked which makes things tense at time. Definately not good for moral.

    I have been working at Cameron full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1. Great benefits package
    2. There are some really great teams to work with
    3. Many opportunities to try something new or to advance into another role
    4. If you are a go-getter you will learn a lot about manufacturing and oil & gas
    5. There are some exciting (hopefully positive) changes occurring in key areas of the business

    Cons

    1. HR makes it really difficult to hire the right people or get rid of the wrong people
    2. Upper management turns a blind eye to issues in key areas
    3. Management is very top heavy at the moment with many changes in the past months with very shady explanations as to why MORE upper management is needed
    4. Communication is very poor across divisions and even within divisions
    5. Right now the company seems disorganized, there are way to many areas within the divisions and not enough shared services

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly listen to what your employees tell you, especially the young ones. Invest more on IT because it is illogical that we are using outdated browsers and services. Put more money into your key areas not just for the customers sack but for employees (especially in Wellness). Invest in competence based training and make sure GRDPs managers truly have responsibilities for the roles they are assigned to. Do not punish employees for giving honest feedback.

    I worked at Cameron as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Had good mentors to look up to throughout the summer. All the employees were more than willing to help me with my intern projects

    Cons

    I have no real cons to complain about. I was in OKC and thought i would would be miserable but i was totally wrong. I had a great group of interns that I was able to hangout with on the weekends and after work.

    Pros

    Nice people, decent pay, interesting job

    Cons

    Disorganized HR, little formal review

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Especially for Interns make sure to give a formal review at the end of the internship so that we can take away not only the experience but the next step in how to grow and achieve more.

    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.
