Young Professional

Proposals Manager (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

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

ProsIt is very developed and strategy oriented company, its working experience looks very good in your resume. Actually my 1 year working experience in Cameron was a door opening factor for moving for a better opportunity in another company. I could grow within Cameron but decided to my new job opportunity.

ConsPeople and company culture - Due to the global operations there is no chance on having a personal life. You will receive Blackberry and laptop for being available almost 24/7. I found this as a stress factor for my life. Some people would enjoy this rhythm of life, I am not.

Advice to Senior ManagementGood luck with finding and inviting new people who will be able to be available 24/7. But remember - majority of people must have personal life.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great place to work and grow

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsCameron encourages employees to grow through training and continuing education

ConsThere is a limit per calendar year for reimbursement $5250. Many schools cost more than this per semester.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt may be time to review the policy. The better educated/trained your employees are, the better the organization

They pay you enough to distract you from the problems.

Graphic Artist I (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Cameron full-time for more than a year

Prosthey pay really well with great benefits compared to other local companies

Consdrama drama drama, and politics. In my group I have seen backstabbing, sabotage, sky-high egos, lies, and betrayal. I've learned that people can be extremely defensive and insecure about their position, and everyone else has to walk on egg shells. People are grandfathered into management, and it is usually based on who's been there the longest, not who's most qualified. Little to no soft skills training available.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf there is a bad apple in a group, don't be afraid to get rid of them because it makes the entire group suffer. Having a problem isn't what makes someone or a group look bad, having a problem and doing nothing to fix it is what makes them look bad. Embrace change, don't sabotage people trying to bring in new ideas.

It is great to be at a company that is innovating... even when change is slow.

Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Cameron full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLarge company. Committed to excellence as a core priciple.

ConsDisconnected infrastructure creates wasted efforts. Pay is avaergae at best.

Advice to Senior ManagementAs great as young people are, recruiting folks with a little experience to replace our returing workforce is a good thing... even if it costs slightly more salary budget.

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