Pros

My bosses were good people. They took the time to teach me quite a bit.

Cons

Nothing saves you from layoffs. Seniority is not recognized.

Advice to Management

Have consideration for seniority. Have respect for employees personal lives. Instead of laying off someone that has been loyal to AMI for many years, offer a pay reduction or a lower paying position but don't just toss them away.

    Pros

    The lack of control from the management, the salary (when payed on time). Comedians' attitude of the managers (completely ignorant and arrogant).

    Cons

    No planning, no procedures, no support (chaos); no team, just lies and promises from the management. No respect for written agreements. Very bad financial situation of the company that will lead to other employees fired.

    Advice to Management

    I know that it's matter of time: trying to reorganize the company and reach high earnings for the private equity fund that owns AMI, then sell the company to another welding manufacturer or equity fund.
    Remember also to work in a professional and organized way or everyone will discover all the lies and hidden plans you have. It's a matter of considering the intelligence and motivation of your collaborators.

    OK with prior management, not so good with current lack of management

    Pros

    Life was good until sales went into the toilet and a new CEO was brought in.

    Cons

    Since the company is over-leveraged, they are constantly in a battle to attempt profitability.

    Advice to Management

    Without experienced technical leadership, your future is hopeless.
