I worked at AMETEK full-time

Pros

- Employees are friendly with each other and encourage one another to do their best.
- Cross-department collaboration is encouraged and relationships are easily formed to allow for projects/tasks to be completed at a high-level.
- Benefits/Salary are competitive, management is honest when you are approaching a ceiling and encourage you to find ways to further your career if you so desire.
- Flexibility to work from home for family/personal issues as well as weather-related issues (i.e. snowstorm, etc.).
- Fantastic environment for people who do not like to be micro-managed.
- Ability to travel is offered for those employees who may be interested in on-site visits to customers and other AMETEK facilities.
- Cross-department training is encouraged and people looking to try out new roles are given opportunity to do so.

Cons

- Tremendous amount of pressure from upper management to meet the monthly/quarterly/annual numbers at seemingly any cost.
- External customer service is seemingly sacrificed in order to please those who most benefit from higher profit margins.
- Needing to interface with multiple facilities across different professional cultures for projects can sometimes prove difficult, though can be overcome with patience.

Advice to Management

- Upper Management would be better viewed by the staff (both union and non-union) if they listened to and took into consideration/action the feelings and ideas of all employees. Many do not feel a full sense of ownership in what AMETEK is doing, and feel like they are just working for the benefit of a few.
- The external customer is right more often than AMETEK gives them credit for, and business would be better overall if more flexibility were given in negotiations for contracts, etc.

    I worked at AMETEK full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    None. Ametek does not care about their employees. They have sent thousands of jobs offshore.

    Cons

    Company is mis-managed. Current leadership team is a joke. Sales Manager is an embarrassment and a buffoon. Within a year of acquiring us, they decided to close the plant I had worked at for over 15 years.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of current leadership (and I use the term loosely).

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

    Pros

    Smaller divisions have the backing of a muli-billion dollar corporation.

    Cons

    Smaller divisions have the bureaucracy of a muli-billion dollar corporation.
