    I have been working at AMETEK full-time

    Pros

    In some BU people are enjoying because of less work pressure.

    Cons

    Top management people are good for nothing. Some managers used to think to get the work done how much more they can do from developers. Because they are giving salary. No career growth.

    There will be no official mail reply if you raise any concerns. Such things will be infromed verbal ly. If you raise the concern no. of times then, you will be considered as negaive attitude person.

    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 have been working at AMETEK full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, cell leaders are excellent and couldn't help their teams enough.
    Pay is pretty decent if u can climb the small ladder that there is and if your face fits. Company has good pension schemes and rewards for no sickness. And if ur lucky maybe even a Christmas voucher. Overall it can be a lovely place to work.

    Cons

    If your face don't fit you won't go anywhere. Can be ignored by management at times. Customer support can be tricky to get along with at times. Sometimes feels like management only care about the figures on the spreadsheet at the end of the month.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff and pay good staff what they deserve.

    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    I am unable to think of any pros of working for this Company other than that there are some very nice people there working under very unpleasant management styles.

    Cons

    The working atmosphere is oppressive and bullying. There is no effort made by the management to encourage team spirit and no progression paths. The offices and equipment are out of date, and no support is given when anyone tries to overcome these problems and improve things.

    Advice to Management

    Come out of the Victorian era, stop the opression and bullying. Update the offices and equipment and make the working environment more pleasant for everyone.f

    Very organized, objectives well defined. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Schedules may shift substantially. Very busy at times not so much at other times.
