    Pros

    Great culture, people are friendly. Made some good friends there. Plenty of room to grow. They train you and encourage you to learn more skills.

    Cons

    Not all managers take the time to interact in a positive way with employees. Since Schlumberger took over I have heard that management has only gotten worse.

    Advice to Management

    Trust that the senior level engineers and designers know what they are doing. Open up to new ideas and design concepts. Some of my designs were not even reviewed due to management rushing to start a project. My ideas would have totally revolutionized their products get they wanted to stick to what was already proven. A real shame.

    I worked at Cameron (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary was competitive, did not require long/after hours work, small groups helped grow across multiple functions. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Corporate cared very little about their employees. Culture was awful - no recognition or reward for going above and beyond, treated like a number and nothing more.

    Pros

    This program provides it's trainees so much great experience that makes them even more valuable when they move to a different company.

    Cons

    The program keeps going through new management and being run slightly differently depending on the company KPIs. Some roles are really mundane and some of your managers will avoid giving you real work because they think that 6 months isn't enough time to accomplish something.

    Advice to Management

    Don't grow the program before you have buy in from all stakeholders and have a good growth plan in place

    Pros

    You will be well trained and given plenty of advancement opportunities. This is a fast-paced company, but they really invest in and take care of their employees.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of down-side, aside from turnover of folks leaving for opportunities at better rates.
