Pros

In theory, good opportunities to have an all around on the job experience. Some good people to work with within a team.

Cons

Not properly structured and very limited opportunities for career progression. Managers are not well trained in managing people and resources.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to put proper structures, procedures and working conditions as operate in other Cameron International locations around the world.

    Pros

    -Tonnes of opportunity to develop your career (especially if you're willing to move and/or travel)
    -Best in class benefits (in the country I'm in - Canada)
    -Lots of training programs for all levels of staff
    -Presidents level managers who are extremely approachable and take the time to talk to low level employees (especially at the Valve and Measurement Group)
    -Relatively solid IT tools
    -Sales incentive plan is excellent
    -Really excellent people everywhere you go
    -Extremely strong ethical values
    -Six Sigma (now called Enterprise Excellence) program offers great opportunities

    Cons

    -Pay needs a little bump....we're competitive but often end up as a training ground for competition.
    -Management incentive plan is really bad
    -Strange obsession with promoting Harvard MBA's into positions they are incapable of handling.
    -More Finance people than most major accounting firms. (I'm being sarcastic but you know what I mean)
    -HR teams can be awful (others are fine)
    -Bad managers often do damage for a long period of time before dealt with.
    -Management needs to do more - quickly about safety.
    -Optimus project is ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mostly you're doing great....
    MICP needs serious work.
    Get engaged on Safety - Top safety guy reports to 3rd level VP?
    Optimus is a mess....a total mess..... yet we push forward.
