    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

    Everyone is very helpful at getting you accustomed to how they operate

    Cons

    IP management systems and workflow software wastes way too much time. Easily spend 1-2 hours a day jumping through hurdles to manage drawings just to have the sales guys screw it up because of not having the same checks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix workflow management processes.

    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.
