    Pros

    Ametek is a high tech company with a strong Acquisition growth model. They specialize in taking smaller high tech firms and turning them into cash cows with high powered channels to market. They keep the branding of the acquisitions typically. The company itself has a very high performance CAGR to reach with high expectations of all managers and engineers. While this is not a "cutting edge" technology firm it is focused on marketability of new tech to the business and academic sectors.

    Cons

    A lack of decentralized organic growth. With most of the focus on meeting acquisition synergy metrics organic growth can eventually fall by the wayside. This creates a feeling for the smaller newly acquired companies of being "gutted" over a few years/decade after the full synergies have been met and it is time for new investment into the business. This focus stifles these companies prematurely and can drive talent out of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers struggle with short term financial objectives driven from the senior management. There is not a huge focus on marketing and sector growth as much as there is interest in new acquisition potential to bolt on to existing businesses. While this model can be advantageous it has its negative impacts as well. I would recommend more consideration of organic growth in some specific instances to sustain talent as well and grow the individual BU's when possible. I will say that Managers are usually highly competent and technical and are strong leaders in this organization. There are a lot of hard working engineers and the work life balance is certainly slanted toward work. There is some good travel and global exposure in this company and it is a great place to grow an see true executive leadership at work.
