    Pros

    Overall it is a nice close knit atmosphere. Things can get hectic at times but everyone works well together. A good diverse group of people.

    Cons

    The management is poorly organized. Most of the directors are very short sighted. Workloads are either very light or very heavy.

    Pros

    Good people, knowledgeable and friendly, good pay. Won't hesitate to let you off early if weather is bad or before a holiday, with pay.

    Cons

    Supervisor is a jerk most of the time. Micromanages and butts into everyone else's conversation. Never listens to anything anyone else has to say. Needs a class in management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get the supervisor of the test department some management classes. He needs to learn how to train and lead without overstepping his boundaries.

    Pros

    Good pay and clean place

    Cons

    This review is for the work place in Mt Prospect for future assemblers. If you want to work here you have to be willing to take a whole lot of rubbish. They don't train you properly. The work books are out-dated and unhelpful. You will be trained by one person and be told by the next person that you are doing it wrong. If you need help from the engineer, they ignore you. People on the test line don't give you the paper work review stating what you may have done wrong on the machine you build. They are supposed to show it to you and you are supposed to sign it. Anything you mess up on is not brought up to you, it goes straight to your supervisor. You are hardly consulted about anything. If you mess up you are out the door with a call from your temp service. You aren't given a chance. Let's not forget language barriers. There are a few people who can speak proper English. The test line workers communicate only with other full-time employees on YOUR machine to fix it if there is a problem. Don't ever go to HR for help either, they don't care about your issues. They favor they're full time employees so they can make the company more money. If you have an issue with a full time employee, you will be let go even if it's not your fault. OH and let's not forget that no one there does their job. You will assemble and do quality control for them and whatever else they don't feel like doing. They never update stock and you end up sitting there with your thumb up your buns waiting for 5 different parts at a time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with one another.

    Pros

    Great people and longevity of employment is high. The people seem to work well together; although, there is a lot of fluctuation in direction.

    Cons

    There is a lack of respect from some management that creates resentment. Colleagues are not motivated to do their best since, at times, it goes unrecognized or management takes the credit for their subordinates' efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give credit where credit is due and this will increase respect from your team and colleagues.

    I worked at AMETEK

    Pros

    I had a good experience here. I was a design engineer and they gave me some work to do most of the time, but some of the time i found my days dragging along. Great people to work with, all very funny and accommodating.

    Cons

    It dragged along most of the time, finding no work to be done. I think they didn't trust me with design, they told me I looked pissed off all the time so they didn't give me work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put some kid two years older than me in charge of me. He was a bad teacher

    Apart from having nice coworkers to work with there are no other pros
