    I have been working at Amteck full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Feeling of family, the Senior Management cares about employees and so much flexibility.

    Cons

    The Vacation Policy is out-dated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    I have been working at Amteck full-time

    Pros

    New facility is really nice. The gym and cafeteria services are nice features. Pay is above market for Lexington in my opinion.

    Cons

    Leadership is not on the page and completely disorganized. Half the time they aren't even in the building. In the summer time the CEOs presence is virtually non-existent. No idea what the COO does--hes in Atlanta all the time. They have a new system no one has any idea how to use. That's what happens when three people essentially huddle in a room and decide what they are going to do. Implementation carried out...

    Advice to Management

    Decide who you are going to be... Are you going to break through and be a modern company or are you going to be the mom and pop shop you used to be? You say you want to take the next step forward but your behavior is that of a company not fully ready to take the leap despite what you tell employees. CEO needs to decide if he wants to be fully invested, if not step aside and let someone else lead.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with other offices and other managers in the office, make sure that employees get paid on time.

    I worked at Amteck full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It’s really hard to point out any positives with the Louisville, Ky office. I’ll say...the break room always had peanuts.

    Cons

    Poor management at all levels. Very little employee oversight. Very little integrity among management. Definitely do not have a top down approach. Mostly a free for all with little management experience. Worst nepotism I’ve ever seen in an employer! Stay away. Run.

    Advice to Management

    Lexington should short sell that office and look for greener pastures. If you intend to make the office fully functional, you will need a top down reconstruction of management.

    Opportunity to work in different locations

    Cons

    I don’t think we get paid enough

    Advice to Management

    You should pay people in the field more, after all we are the ones doing all the work to make you look good.

    I have been working at Amteck full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only pro is it's an easy commute. Near the interstate. Nothing else good to say. People are miserable there and won't speak up out of fear of losing their job.

    Cons

    They don't train you or tell you their expectations. They have no direction or chain of command. Terrible company. The owner is a great guy you'd think he would see the turnover rate and pay attention to the negative feedback better. Management is clueless. Extreme hostility in the office between coworkers. Must be apart of the good ole boys club or your treated as an outcast. No leadership or direction

    Advice to Management

    Shut down this location.

    I worked at Amteck for less than a year

    Pros

    decent company lots of travel decent superintendants plenty of work decent pay good benefits per diem pay travel time one way

    Cons

    room accomodations are terrible they put you with who ever and dont listen when you are not comfortable with the person you are with. They ake empty raise promises. the money could be better for a traveling company.

    Advice to Management

    Make the pay worth it for your emplloyees to spend so much time away from their families and listen to valid complaints about living situations no one wants to room with the party guys if they are seriuos about working and making money.

    Remember the men in the field doing the work is what makes the company!
