    I worked at Cameron full-time for more than a year

    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!
