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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at AMETEK full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good people to work with (At least in the production side). Great benefits (at least 1 exception) for single people. Opportunity to interact with various cultures and learn multi-national business internally.

    Cons

    Frustrating mid and top level management. Often contradictory to each other to subordinates. Benefits seemed great, except tuition reimbursement (contractual requirements and ability of manager to override reimbursement for courses not deemed to influence your daily duties (MBA programs include multitude of functions, not all align with current role within company).
    Subordinates looked at as pawns, and a very top-heavy company seems to refuse to acknowledge support structure needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce number of managers at all levels (you don't need a manager to supervise one person). Filter managerial prospects better to have those with ability to lead as managers (micromanagers tend to demean people). Evaluate internal candidates for growth potential, internal growth does not seem likely.
