    Pros

    CAM Services does a great job of promoting from within. They encourage their employees to take part in high impact projects that have a large impact on the company. The company culture is one of collaboration and CAM focuses on being able to adapt to the ever changing marketplace

    Cons

    The company headquarters in a great location in Los Angeles, but the building does not have any windows.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push your employees to work outside their comfort zone. By focusing on the growth of your employees, you ensure the internal talent growth will keep up with the needs of the company.

    Pros

    The biggest one for me is flexibility and autonomy. The company doesn't believe in micro-management. There is an opportunity to make a difference here, as they are always looking for feedback and new ideas from employees at all levels to both improve their services, and to make the company a good place to work. If you show you are capable of taking on additional responsibility, you can move up in the company both in title and compensation.

    Cons

    No 401k offered to employees. Headquarters is in a good location, but the building lacks windows.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path you are on - trying to improve and grow, and focusing on employees.

    I worked at CAM Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fair pay, paid vacation and holidays. Open to new ideas and input from employees. Striving to be a leader in the industry.

    Cons

    Many of the systems are not user friendly. Some of the ideas are implemented before they are completely flushed out. Too many meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get too many projects going at one time. Don't over complicate a simple business.

    Pros

    No pros, you might meet a few great people, if you or them can last that long there. This company chews people up and spits them out.

    Cons

    Everything here is a con, from the president to all the contracts. They take advantage of all of these hard working legal immigrant workers and screw them over every chance possible. And they actively seeking out ways to screw their clients.

    Advice to Management

    Perform a military coup and oust President David Herrera. He is literally the worst human ever, he actually believes he knows everything and that he controls everything. When in fact, it is all HIS fault for every single failure the company endures. Every single contract lost is due to his inability to perform even the basic job duties. And he makes all the employees lie to every single client. They have maybe a total of 20 in-house labor employees. As they have been found guilty of labor laws and workers comp issues, they can no longer afford to have in house employees. They set up immigrant workers with their "own" companies. Then take over 60% of the contract to be the middle man, in fact they hire area managers and account managers who have little to NO experience in the respective divisions to manage these subcontractors. Then to top it off, David Herrera pulls another great one over the subcontractors, in the winter, he does a "winter reduction", he reduces the pay outs to all landscape subcontractors by 25%-35%, and he himself pockets the money. We are talking about $20k - $35k per month for 4-5 months every single year.

       What a joke of a little little man. The hispanic uncle tom.

    Pros

    At this time their is nothing positive to say!

    Cons

    Worse company ever! President should pay more attention to his right hand man who does not know anything. Learn to listen to your employees!

    Advice to Management

    Not every employee is a snake just like all employees are not loyal. Learn to see the difference or your going to lose alot of valueable employees that could of taken this company to the top!

    Pros

    There is energy and excitement due to the constant change that is slowly starting to transform the company into a strong force in the industry again.

    Cons

    There are lots of new faces, so it takes time to know your co-workers. Some of the systems are outdated, but at least they're being reevaluated.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give up and keep finding and hiring great people!

    Pros

    The schedule is overall flexible, and you get to work with a lot of nice people. Salaries are decent for admins and not so good for middle management.

    Cons

    The company is run by the most egocentric person I've ever met. He believes he knows it all, and the company has been going downhill for many years. The President only cares about his personal benefits, which are a lot.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't really matter what advice you could give them and it doesn't really matter what management can do. At the end of the day, the president is the one making all poor decisions.
