I worked at AMETEK full-time

Pros

- Employees are friendly with each other and encourage one another to do their best.
- Cross-department collaboration is encouraged and relationships are easily formed to allow for projects/tasks to be completed at a high-level.
- Benefits/Salary are competitive, management is honest when you are approaching a ceiling and encourage you to find ways to further your career if you so desire.
- Flexibility to work from home for family/personal issues as well as weather-related issues (i.e. snowstorm, etc.).
- Fantastic environment for people who do not like to be micro-managed.
- Ability to travel is offered for those employees who may be interested in on-site visits to customers and other AMETEK facilities.
- Cross-department training is encouraged and people looking to try out new roles are given opportunity to do so.

Cons

- Tremendous amount of pressure from upper management to meet the monthly/quarterly/annual numbers at seemingly any cost.
- External customer service is seemingly sacrificed in order to please those who most benefit from higher profit margins.
- Needing to interface with multiple facilities across different professional cultures for projects can sometimes prove difficult, though can be overcome with patience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Upper Management would be better viewed by the staff (both union and non-union) if they listened to and took into consideration/action the feelings and ideas of all employees. Many do not feel a full sense of ownership in what AMETEK is doing, and feel like they are just working for the benefit of a few.
- The external customer is right more often than AMETEK gives them credit for, and business would be better overall if more flexibility were given in negotiations for contracts, etc.

    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 worked at AMETEK full-time for less than a year

    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.
