    Ok Company

    Senior Process Engineer (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsOk company to work for. Benefits are ok. Location is ok. Company's future is unknown. Com

    ConsOk company to work for. Benefits are ok. Location is ok. Company's future is unknown. Senior management needs to know what's going on in the different divisions. Lack of direction is obvious

    Comedy of Errors

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsFor the most part benefits are good but pay it about average. Although there appear to be plenty of opportunities for change and growth navigating it can be complicated and difficult to accomplish.

    ConsWorking with HR is extremely difficult, very unresponsive to both current employees and potential employees. Competence and concern does not seem to be a part of the philosophy. Applying through the website is another black hole, matter goes in but nothing ever comes out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management needs to address the HR issues and stop turning a blind eye to the problems. There are real issues with the length of time it takes for anything that relates to HR to be accomplished. It is truly a big mess.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    HOT MESS

    Production (Former Employee)

    ProsWork is worthwhile; pay and benefits are good (3 weeks vacation 1st year).

    ConsManagers either non communicative; or moody (never know what you will get); no clear design for training or promotion; some travel for training in Houston; others never get the chance; new employees often brought in at higher salary than more skilled/ experienced senior employees in the same job. LONG HOURS

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave some sort of continuity; COMMUNICATE with your employees and have a plan in place for training new / changing rolls to your employees, please!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Working at Cameron

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsA company that's heavily involved with community service projects. Relaxed working environment. Strong focus on health and safety.

    ConsA lack of commitment from management to help resolve day to day issues. Seeing the frustration in many employees who struggle to understand why certain decisions are made.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on the needs of individuals. Avoid making abrupt decisions on organization structure without the feedback if those who will be affected.. Major changes to departments only causes confusion and in turn reduces productivity and potentially adds limitations to personal growth.

    Great outlook

    Senior Warehouse Coordinator (Current Employee) Vernal, UT

    ProsGood leadership, great focus, good company values, excellent benefits. Good internal promotion potential. There is a lot of room to grow and I like my chances.

    ConsCoorporate intervention, starting from the ground up. I have big ideas but there is a hundred steps to follow in order to do almost anything. I have a long way to go.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep profits coming in.
