    Pros

    Good pay, small manufacturer allows you to wear a lot of different hats. Big company benefits which are rare for a small town like Carson City. Two businesses under one roof.

    Cons

    Very production oriented. Good luck if you are in sales. Management has little understanding or support for sales and marketing. Engineering is probably most overworked part of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Communicate.

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

    Pros

    Location was convenient, parking was not an issue. Salary was below market but you could haggle prior to being hired.

    Cons

    Employees were almost viewed as a burden, as if they were getting in the way of management. Too many managers with unchecked privileges. Poor planning. Poor strategy. Very hierarchical. Self-motivated employees were viewed as "rogue". Do not recommend.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more assemblers and workers. Rehire and fill non-management positions immediately. One person cannot do his work as well as the job of the fellow you just fired. Or the guy who died 6 months ago. Train people instead of throwing them into the mix as soon as you hire them.
