    I worked at AMETEK full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    able to work with other employees around the globe

    Cons

    horrible benefits, low moral, management doesn't work with employees.
    Company is much to money hungry and does not reinvest in its people. Only in other companies (which are bought and then dissolved into Shanghai)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay attention to the common regular ol' employee. We have a lot to say.

    I worked at AMETEK full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    None. Ametek does not care about their employees. They have sent thousands of jobs offshore.

    Cons

    Company is mis-managed. Current leadership team is a joke. Sales Manager is an embarrassment and a buffoon. Within a year of acquiring us, they decided to close the plant I had worked at for over 15 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of current leadership (and I use the term loosely).

    I have been working at AMETEK full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Once your company is acquired, say good-bye to at least 5% of your co-workers. This is good because it makes the office seem much less crowded. Pay cuts and other cost cutting measures will be necessary to achieve the new lofty profitability goals. This is also good, because workers really can have too much money. Don't worry, the explanations for the cost reductions will provide humor in an otherwise unhappy workplace.

    You are free to leave as soon as you find a new job. Just don't let the door hit you in the back on your way out.

    Cons

    Ametek is a profitable company that works very hard at keeping its operating expenses as low as possible. Unfortunately, employees are not a valued resource. Industry average wages will be replaced with below average wages. 40 hours a week is the minimum, unless you are a manager and then 35 hours is acceptable.

    Layoffs and pay cuts are used to meet the unrealistic/inflated profitability goals. Of course morale suffers as a result of these cost cutting measures. There is a general lack of honesty throughout the entire Ametek organization. The corporate IT department thinks Lotus Notes is a state of the art email program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can only sh!t on your people for so long.

    stingy company w/ unethical management

    I worked at AMETEK

    Pros

    No overtime, so 40 hr per week. If you leave late, you can use the time you accumulated to leave early or come in late.

    Cons

    Pay is about 25-30% below market rate. There isn't any bonus or profit sharing. Employees are not motivated and has very low morale. The engineering manager/director is a jealousy person and will take credit for your work to help him to get promotion from his boss while the top management doesn't really know your existence. Has very low ethics and has no shame in taking other's work results w/o other's permission and shows no appreciation. Promote a very political climate within the department. Uses his pet engineer to spy on other engineers. Between managers and managers, there are major issues. Quality and Manufacturing (managed by a Redneck bully) doesn't communicate or exchange information and most likely hate each other to death. MRB takes place once a quarter it seems. Once the failed production units are found, they go into the MRB cabinet and stay there for 3 month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees with market rate and boost up benefits to motivate employees. Hire some qualified managers for engineering, manufacturing and quality. Promote a friendly working environment.

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

    Pros

    Directors and Top Managing of different Unit Business inside Ametek, have confidence in Mexican Labor,

    Cons

    HCC Reynosa Management and HR Reynosa Management have all the control hiring their own relatives for more chances to control the business, but they are hiring no experienced people to do very high responsibility jobs. Higher Management should get into this issue real fast!!! or business will bankrupt!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should be more cautious of the personnel they hire, and must be open to Communication with employees outside HR, My personal experience with Ametek, was the worst ever
