    Pros

    The best place I've ever worked super friendly and very helpful people everyday people are always smiling, laughing, and having a great time at work. It always seems like everyone is happy to be working here!

    Cons

    None, this is the best place I've ever worked you just can't ask for better bosses then these people. Always cares about everyone and their safety and if something comes up and you have to leave work these people really care about each and everyone who works here and are very understanding. Thank You and keep up the good work!

    I worked at Cameron full-time

    Pros

    Good company to work for. 8 1/2 years and the division I worked at had a family-like atmosphere

    Cons

    Capped-off promotions based on education level. No vertical movement as far as promotions are concerned based on rather or not an employee was a degree-holder.

    Advice to Management

    Give the personnel that you have trained and fostered from the bottom up a chance to advance past the normal career points. Those people have developed close relationships w/ your customer base and are valuable assets.

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

    Pros

    Great culture and work/life balance

    Cons

    Bought by Schlumberger. Cameron culture does not mix well with Schlumberger culture. Ended up quitting because of it. "If you leave at 5 a Schlumberger manager sees that as leaving early." - My Schlumberger manager after seeing me leave at 5:30.

    Pros

    If you are willing to work hard and put the time in you can advance quickly.

    Cons

    Non proportionate distribution of workload. The harder you work, the more work you get assigned to you. At times this doesn't matter because you can get compensated for your extra efforts but during market downturns everyone is getting the same type of merit increases regardless of work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Train new hire employees. Provide continuous education on the various product lines. Try and establish a lead/mentor business model where someone can have the time to learn under a mentor prior to being the sole lead on a very important project (for example).
