    Pros

    It 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.

    Cons

    People 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 ManagementAdvice

    Good 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.

    Pros

    Cameron encourages employees to grow through training and continuing education

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Good place to learn and grow. They run huge collection of training programs. It is up to an individual to take part and grow.

    Cons

    more responsive and interactive HRs are in need. I guess they should concentrate on it.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, bonuses, pay but thats it.

    Cons

    they play the favorite system. If you are not one of the good ole boys you won't make it. They also do not follow the procedures. they had not quality on the night shift and rules seemed to change depending on who they were dealing with. I even during the time i was there seen things i would consider raciest things being done b/c someone was not the same color as the boss. I am glad to no longer be working for a company like this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you guys need to go in and clean house at the little rock plant from hr to management. Very unfair place to work and they are raciest.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    drama 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 ManagementAdvice

    If 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.

    Pros

    Large company. Committed to excellence as a core priciple.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As 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.
