    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.

    Pros

    A positive culture and collaboration dominate this company. The focus on innovation and forward thinking technology makes the outlook for the future truly exciting.

    Cons

    Competition in the industry is strong and the industry goes through cycles constantly so it may not be for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Rapid development with practical skills applied to learn the business top to bottom, in preparation to becoming a future leader within the company. The field service portion of the program is invaluable, which few people get exposed to.

    Cons

    Hours in field service are long and tedious. It makes for some long weeks with little time to do much else outside of work. You will be sleeping in a truck on location and expected to live up to the high demand of both customers and Cameron.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. More contact from management in Houston would be a plus to benchmark where you're at, etc.

    Pros

    Cameron has amazing global job opportunities, great employee support for growth and education. Their approach to employment means job stability even in uncertain markets. Enjoyable co-worker and culture within teams.

    Cons

    Cameron has somewhat limited advancement opportunites depending on your job. With highly stable employment they simply don't have spaces for people sometimes. Also, there can be times when the work schedule is demanding and requires extra effort.

    Pros

    Cameron is a great company for new graduates, and those seeking a secure career. There is a training program or guidepath for almost all professional aspects of the company, and lots of training is available for development. Benefits are competitive with the Industry.

    Cons

    The company is starting to lose some of its great attributes as it gets larger, it is becoming less about how you can help each other to make a better product and more "how can I get ahead". I've also heard that the pay isn't at the same level as competitors, but I can't verify that personally. The pay, accompanied by the aforementioned issue, is making a lot of great engineers look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on retaining the proven employees you have rather than hiring those that look good on paper.

    Pros

    Very good benefits.
    Work with new technology (for oilfield).

    Cons

    Too much change often just got the sake of change.

    Advice to Management

    slow down with all the initiatives and programs. Lots of wasteful spending in those areas.

    Pros

    I started my career with Cameron, and over the past few years I have seen it transition from a bespoke project minded organization, to a collaborative, innovative company with a long term vision of our industry. This is in no small part due to restructuring of the organization that has resulted in a strong management team.

    Cons

    Compensation is somewhat below average for the industry, leading to some issues with recruitment and retention of talented employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the focus on innovation and new technology development.

    Focus on comprehensive benefits packages that will recruit and retain top talent.

    Cons

    I gave this a lot of thought and cannot come up with any cons to note!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
