    Pros

    if your lucky enough to be in a company purchased with strong processes in place you will be fine.

    Cons

    Holding Company mentality, no investment in employees or products, get on the treadmill and run and deliver results. Value add balance missing for customers and employees

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Pros of this place? Benefits and a steady paycheck. That's about it. 1 star for each of those to give this place 2/5 stars.

    Cons

    You are worked into the ground. You can't make plans because they spring mandatory OT on you at the last minute. Management doesn't care about the workers, to them you are just a number. This is something that they will tell you. People are afraid to speak up about anything because they fear losing their job. They only seem to want people who will keep their mouth shut and do what they are told. Have an issue they don't like and choose to voice it? They'll find a way to get rid of you. And by all means, don't mention unions. You'll find yourself being shown the front door as soon as they can find a "legal" reason to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your workers like people. Show them some appreciation because if it weren't for them, you wouldn't be getting those bonuses.

    Really, you expect us to respect you but you clearly show that you don't respect the workers. I can't respect someone who clearly doesn't respect me.

    I worked at AMETEK (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, flexible schedule, and great co-workers.

    Cons

    They Lie to and Steal from their customers. I've seen calibration paperwork forged. They claim ISO certification but have no process in place and when i attempted to resolve this I was told "That is just to much work". Management really doesn't know what they are doing and that leads to alot of unnecessary stress and huge loss of quality of work. They think lean manufacturing means laying off people then whomever is left split up the work. I learned alot but I am happy I left before beginning to believe that what they did was normal or ethical.

    Advice to Management

    Create standard practices and adhere to them, I know it's a lot of work but it will resolve more problems and start to eliminate wasteful mistakes. Maybe take a course in production management.
