    I worked at AMETEK full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great long-term strategic plan with excellent management for driving profit. Excellent company if you are an engineer, and a good career company overall (as companies go these days).

    Cons

    If you are not an engineer, your career path is more limited. A good business-minded individual without an engineering degree should expect to jump to a new company to get the promotion they deserve.

    Advice to Management

    Difficult to give advise when management seemingly pulls all the right levers to maximize profit growth. However, if I'm pressed to offer some advise it would be to look and invest for more longer term opportunities; not all fruit is of the low-hanging variety.

    I worked at AMETEK full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good amount of PTO and paid holidays.

    Cons

    Very poor opportunities from within, "Good Old Boy network" do not foster a positive, progressive environment. Antiquated process', do not utilize systems available to them. Stagnate environment.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house, get new innovative managers who have a progressive vision for the company. Results driven people who are measured for their efforts and accomplishments. Get out of the 80's business model.

    Pros

    Overall it is a nice close knit atmosphere. Things can get hectic at times but everyone works well together. A good diverse group of people.

    Cons

    The management is poorly organized. Most of the directors are very short sighted. Workloads are either very light or very heavy.

    Pros

    Good people, knowledgeable and friendly, good pay. Won't hesitate to let you off early if weather is bad or before a holiday, with pay.

    Cons

    Supervisor is a jerk most of the time. Micromanages and butts into everyone else's conversation. Never listens to anything anyone else has to say. Needs a class in management.

    Advice to Management

    Please get the supervisor of the test department some management classes. He needs to learn how to train and lead without overstepping his boundaries.

    Good pay and clean place

    Cons

    This review is for the work place in Mt Prospect for future assemblers. If you want to work here you have to be willing to take a whole lot of rubbish. They don't train you properly. The work books are out-dated and unhelpful. You will be trained by one person and be told by the next person that you are doing it wrong. If you need help from the engineer, they ignore you. People on the test line don't give you the paper work review stating what you may have done wrong on the machine you build. They are supposed to show it to you and you are supposed to sign it. Anything you mess up on is not brought up to you, it goes straight to your supervisor. You are hardly consulted about anything. If you mess up you are out the door with a call from your temp service. You aren't given a chance. Let's not forget language barriers. There are a few people who can speak proper English. The test line workers communicate only with other full-time employees on YOUR machine to fix it if there is a problem. Don't ever go to HR for help either, they don't care about your issues. They favor they're full time employees so they can make the company more money. If you have an issue with a full time employee, you will be let go even if it's not your fault. OH and let's not forget that no one there does their job. You will assemble and do quality control for them and whatever else they don't feel like doing. They never update stock and you end up sitting there with your thumb up your buns waiting for 5 different parts at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with one another.

    Pros

    Great people and longevity of employment is high. The people seem to work well together; although, there is a lot of fluctuation in direction.

    Cons

    There is a lack of respect from some management that creates resentment. Colleagues are not motivated to do their best since, at times, it goes unrecognized or management takes the credit for their subordinates' efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Give credit where credit is due and this will increase respect from your team and colleagues.

    Pros

    I had a good experience here. I was a design engineer and they gave me some work to do most of the time, but some of the time i found my days dragging along. Great people to work with, all very funny and accommodating.

    Cons

    It dragged along most of the time, finding no work to be done. I think they didn't trust me with design, they told me I looked pissed off all the time so they didn't give me work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't put some kid two years older than me in charge of me. He was a bad teacher
