    I have been working at Cameron full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Expansive career with new SLB merger
    Plants have family atmosphere
    Opportunities to travel with work

    Cons

    centralized functions hold up progress at plants i.e. purchasing, IT, HR, payroll.
    SLB management not always open to accepting best practices from CAM group.

    Advice to Management

    Accept best practices from both sides of the acquisition. SLB has a lot to learn about SAP use. CAM can gain a great deal from the actually documented and followed SOPs and SLAs of SLB. If both sides would be open to learning from each other employee engagement would be higher. SLB could be more welcoming to legacy CAM employees.
