    Good place to start out.

    Engineer (Former Employee)
    Costa Mesa, CA

    ProsEveryone 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave some more group activities to try and raise morale in the company.

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

    Commodity Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGood pay, good benefits, leading edge technology

    ConsBig 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 Senior ManagementStart 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.

    A challenging but rewarding place to work.

    Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee)
    Madison, WI

    ProsHigh paced, low interference work environment.

    ConsSlow to create positions. New hires are on a temporary basis for far too long.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStreamline hiring process.

    The co. as a whole is fine. their racial demographics needs improving but I doubt that will happen.

    Electronic Technician (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsThe people seem to be genuine and friendly. They do have nice benefits and are good at training.

    ConsThey are not open to change or 'how to do it better' ideas. They're happy with 'status quo' mentality.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk questions of your employees concerning areas of improvement and concern.

    Nuetral

    Inventory Analyst (Current Employee)
    Grand Junction, Mesa, CO

    ProsThe best things I liked about working for Ametek was that there was a lot of learning experiences for me. I was able to learn about the Six Sigma tools and apply them in the new companies I worked for and be able to make them more efficient in the long run. Automotive "techniques" can be utilized in just about any company. This was very valuable in my continued carerr success.

    ConsI had a boss that was very demanding and did not have a great way of showing appreciation for doing a good job. He was very difficult to work for but on the flip side I did learn some things Not to do from his management style

    Advice to Senior ManagementPraise the employees
