Encouraged to learn and grow

Anonymous (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cameron full-time for more than 3 years

ProsJoining the Cameron team is like joining a family. Most people treat their position as a career, not a job. The staff is very knowledgable and willing help when someone needs it.

Cameron goes above and beyond to ensure employee safety. I have seen numerous capital expenditures for improving employee safety.

I cannot speak for all Cameron facilities but from those I have visited, Cameron seems to care enough about its employees to have proper heating and cooling (in the manufacturing sites). In this area, Cameron is fathoms above many of its competitors.

Long hours have been mentioned in other reviews. I have long hours by choice. I like working here so much I will stay late or come in early to accomplish more work.

The benefits are pretty amazing.
-Health Insurance is awesome
-Dental is okay.
-Vision is good.

-Matching 401k(for non-union sites)
   -up to 6% of base pay
   -given an additional 3% of base pay
-Vacation
   -10 US holidays
   -15 vacation days for most employees

Training
   -Lean Six Sigma is provided in-house
      -potential to earn a $1000 bonus
   -Cameron hosts APICS and PMP sessions
   -Employees are encouraged to pursue training of all sorts

Education
-Cameron has a continuing education program that will provide $5250 towards job related schooling per calendar year

Cons-There does not seem to be room for upward movement
   -Much of Cameron's management team seems to be a young crowd (many of the senior managers left with packages in 2009)

-It is easier to get hired if you know someone
    -Sometimes it seems people are hired because of who they know, not what they know.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Cameron is a good company where I had to opportunity to work plus learn, so that I something new to add to my resume.

DFO Coordinator (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Cameron as a contractor for more than a year

ProsWhile working there I not only had the opportunity to learn something new but also had the opportunity to advance to a different position. This company gave me a chance to interact with upper management to learn even more about the company. You had a choice of what time would work for you as far as flex time. We had a choice between 9/80's, 10/40's or 9 to 5 hours, so we could have a day of during the week to take care of personal things.

ConsThe only thing that I didn't like is some of there politics as far as change something around in order to boos team buildings. Going outside the box to get the members of your team to do something that they never did before.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet the littler people more bonuses and some room to move around.

I worked at Cameron

ProsFriendly people that were easy to strike up a conversation with. The whole process felt rather informal in nature so it put me at ease.

Great company for someone that wants to work long hours.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cameron full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat people, learned a lot, good benefits

ConsWork-life balance is horrible. Work 12+ hour days and sometimes weekends to get the job done. Overwhelmed with the amount of workload and management is still not satified. Maybe it's not like this throught all the company, but it definitely is in my dept.

Advice to Senior ManagementWould definitely like to see management recognize employees for their hard work and improve work-life balance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Company, Great Benefits

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

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

ProsGreat People to work with for the most part.

ConsSome divisions suffer from broken processes that require extra time to work around. Interdivisional communications and coordination inefficient or nonexistent.

Advice to Senior ManagementPut someone in charge of a division that will listen to the people doing the work. Take steps that might require an investment in personnel and facilities but contribute to profitability and job satisfaction
