    Pros

    Excellent growth opportunity, strong leadership development, competitive pay, strong support from management, educational assistance, drive for success. In working for Ametek, I received a promotion and have received strong support during my transition. There is a strong investment in personnel and development and I have been given many opportunities to receive training when I needed it; internally and externally. The company places an emphasis on recognizing talent and developing that talent. I would say that one is given many opportunities to grow and thrive within the organization - the truly limiting factor is yourself. Overall as an organization, new ideas, processes, and systems are implemented specifically to make us a stronger, more profitable business. We are encouraged to participate and help develop those ideas, processes and systems; to be a contributor and enjoy our success.

    Cons

    I have experienced some communication gaps, but nothing major. Within each function, it would be nice to have a "roadmap" with names, responsibilities, and contact information.

    Pros

    Great company with great people. They value your effort and make you feel you are part of their goals. This is the best company I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    Only cons is salaries, are not the best here in Canada for a company of its size. The fact of having a 14 and 7 days rotation in a site where everyone gets 14 and 14 can make you feel bad compared to other people, but still I feel comfortable working for this company.

    Advice to Management

    They are doing a great job keep up the great effort.
