    Good pay and benefits for employees

    I worked at AMETEK full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not very many pros at all. Some good people. Great if you want to tackle the work of 2-3 people.

    Cons

    Will work you to death and disrespect you. Forget work life balance and family. Toxic environment. Aggressive goals and deadlines with regular headcount reductions. Care only about the numbers. Incredibly inefficient for such a large company. Systems rarely work but deadlines are still expected to be met.

    Advice to Management

    None. It's nearly impossible to change a toxic environment and culture.

    I worked at AMETEK full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very liberal company's policy and benift package. Has company's match 401K plan up to 6%. Paid holidays and up to 3 paid days for perfect attendance.

    Cons

    Mismanagement and lack of leadership ship. No real accountability. Became a toxic environment. Safety for employees seems very low priority.

    Advice to Management

    Need someone who knows how the different departments work in order to achieve meeting company goals. Top management need to get more involved on why they go through so many operation managers and staff.
