    I have been working at AMETEK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great company with great people. They value your effort and make you feel you are part of their goals. This is the best company I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    Only cons is salaries, are not the best here in Canada for a company of its size. The fact of having a 14 and 7 days rotation in a site where everyone gets 14 and 14 can make you feel bad compared to other people, but still I feel comfortable working for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are doing a great job keep up the great effort.

    I worked at AMETEK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company offered an exciting learning experience that was fast paced. The pay and benefits package was satisfactory.

    Cons

    After the initial excitement, there was little training of product line to build confidence. With that it became difficult to get answers from certain outlets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simply define goals & roles. Incorporate a robust training method. Acknowledge good work & effort.

    Just hiring high quality people is not enough. You need to give the challenging work environment to use their skills.

    Best Company I've Ever Worked For

    I have been working at AMETEK

    Pros

    Excellent growth opportunity, strong leadership development, competitive pay, strong support from management, educational assistance, drive for success. In working for Ametek, I received a promotion and have received strong support during my transition. There is a strong investment in personnel and development and I have been given many opportunities to receive training when I needed it; internally and externally. The company places an emphasis on recognizing talent and developing that talent. I would say that one is given many opportunities to grow and thrive within the organization - the truly limiting factor is yourself. Overall as an organization, new ideas, processes, and systems are implemented specifically to make us a stronger, more profitable business. We are encouraged to participate and help develop those ideas, processes and systems; to be a contributor and enjoy our success.

    Cons

    I have experienced some communication gaps, but nothing major. Within each function, it would be nice to have a "roadmap" with names, responsibilities, and contact information.

    I worked at AMETEK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is accessible and you are free to ask questions. The other engineers are helpful and the technicians love to work with the engineers to fix problems. There is always something to do so you do not get bored.

    Cons

    Tight budget from corporate to get things fixed. I wish the company offered training to help improve the employees skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some more group activities to try and raise morale in the company.

    Good employer overall. Typical publicly traded corporation, however, where shareholders come first.

    I have been working at AMETEK full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, leading edge technology

    Cons

    Big corporate mentality. If sales do not meet forecast, expect layoffs/furloughs to recover for shareholder benefit. In my location, some mid level management tends to have less than professional management skills. Will throw employees under the bus for their own gain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying more attention to what is really going on at the lower levels. Demand more professional behavior from your low to mid level managers. Understand skill levels of employees and promote to their performance rather than their ability to "talk" a good game.
