    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing in bringing on fresh talent with out-of-industry experience. Your ability to adopt a 21st century outlook on how to attract, manage and retain top talent will be your savior or your demise.

    Pros

    The pay is decent. That is what was hard. Benefits, paid time off, 401K.

    Cons

    I realized offering me the benefits and paid time off receiving a consistent paycheck enough to pay my bills was not worth being unhappy every single day. Co-workers are all despicable and can't wait to go stab you in the back as soon as they get the chance. Management doesn't care about how much work you have done and they offer you no say so. Their only option to any issue you have is "there is no other options or you will be terminated."

    Pros

    Fair Pay, Great Benefits, great legacy products

    Cons

    Inexperienced and arrogant Upper Management. A lot of great, experienced people that can expand the business are sitting back and keeping their ideas to themselves while the wonderboys destroy a good company. Do not know how to execute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The last 5 years at Cameron Valve Division was a continual shuffle of young managers looking for their next promotion. Senior Management - leave your wonder boys in a position long enough to see if their ideas/changes actually have any meat to them. No one stays in a role long enough to take responsibility/accountability for the 'shoot from the hip' decisions that they make. It's all show and no go from these guys. Most will fizzle like a bottle rocket, but unfortunately some good people and good customers will be lost with your experiment.
