    Pros

    Growing and stable company
    Satisfactory Compensation
    Good Work Life Balance

    Cons

    The company is a conglomerate of many different companies so the working of different groups is very different. The working should be streamlined across different Business Units.

    I worked at AMETEK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company offered an exciting learning experience that was fast paced. The pay and benefits package was satisfactory.

    Cons

    After the initial excitement, there was little training of product line to build confidence. With that it became difficult to get answers from certain outlets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simply define goals & roles. Incorporate a robust training method. Acknowledge good work & effort.

    I have been working at AMETEK

    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.

    I worked at AMETEK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is accessible and you are free to ask questions. The other engineers are helpful and the technicians love to work with the engineers to fix problems. There is always something to do so you do not get bored.

    Cons

    Tight budget from corporate to get things fixed. I wish the company offered training to help improve the employees skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some more group activities to try and raise morale in the company.
