    Decent option for publicly traded company

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Solidstate Controls, Inc. (SCI) was a privately owned company for decades, prior to being acquired by AMETEK. While AMETEK has slowly shifted the culture of the company, many aspects of being a smaller, privately owned company remain. The company often promotes from within, and it has competitive pay and benefits. SCI is still considered a leader in its industry, providing it more stability than manufacturers within a lower quality tier.

    Cons

    AMETEK now owns SCI and has brought many of the downsides of being a publicly traded company. Many decisions revolve solely around making monthly, quarterly, and annual profit and margin projections. This often seems short-sighted and can be frustrating to many within the company. Additionally, the culture of the company can feel washed, subdued, or even non-existent, by the continual near-obsessive focus on meeting the numbers. That being said, AMETEK does a very good job at delivering increased profits to their shareholders. So while it can be frustrating from an employee perspective, it can be difficult to be too critical of their approach given the results.

    Pros

    - The people here are awesome, knowledgeable, driven, passionate and caring - The technology is amazing - The company is customer focused with global power but local touch - Operationally excellent

    Cons

    The only negative is that the company just delivers excellence without fanfare, so it is the best kept secret in the world.

    Systems Engineer

    Jul 18, 2022 - Systems Engineer in Richmond, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The engineering appeal for me is the cutting edge science in optics, plasma physics, and glass materials along with the diagnostics to analyze results. Production with an eye to the future.

    Cons

    New to Ametek so my perspective on disadvantages is limited, the benefits package paperwork was a bit overwhelming at first, although that is probably true wherever you work, and the benefits are a definite advantage.

    Constant Pressure To Improve Revenue

    Jul 8, 2022 - Buyer/Planner in Goleta, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    A variety of custom made thermal components used on a plethora of applications. Great engineering and r&d team. Knowledgeable team members and great people to work with.

    Cons

    Micro managers are slave drivers. Executives make quarterly bonuses. Everyone else is pushed to their limits. Managers are always trying to beat revenue forecasts. Employees get blamed for managers bad decisions. Buyer/Planners are expected to do everything. From planning and purchasing for production and returns, to resolving all discrepancies found by QA, while keeping the schedule firm and management aware of what is going on.
