    Pros

    Dynamic, fast pace, a lot of different opportunities, good benefits, excellent executives

    Cons

    No opportunities to growth within the organizations. People are move laterally despite their errors and poor performance. Rather than promoting from within, people are brought from the outside. Too many changes demoralize employees.

    Advice to Management

    Change mentality and culture. A lot of good people are leaving

    Lead by example through the execution of the brand drivers that are touted as the AMECO way. If these were truly implemented, AMECO would be able to provide a much better solution to clients.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Short drive to work. Cannot not find any reasons to help this company look attractive, to someone looking for a job.

    Cons

    Upper management micro manages. Lower management insecure and will not train others. No procedures or guidelines to follow. New employees must have motivation to train themselves, if not, you will not be employed long. Low pay and no pay over 40 hours. Annual salary increases low. The heavy work loads are always placed on the same individuals. Everyone works against each other. No teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Do not make promises to promote or increase pay scales when you have no intention to fulfill commitments. Ameco needs to take a hard look at management to see who is on board to help the company move foreword. To many mangers pushing away from changes.
