    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.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Great working environment, values and ethics. People/Talent is first. Managers are focus in making profit but encouraging people for sucess. Too many Divisions, but respect among them. AMETEK is the example of Diversity of Products and only one Family. Was a great and unique experience having too many products under one roof.

    Cons

    I believe that they wont consider to rehire people that left for personal reasons. Could be wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Bring more business to AMETEK Reynosa, expand your roof

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    I 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 Management

    Praise the employees

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Ask questions of your employees concerning areas of improvement and concern.
