    Best Company I've Ever Worked For

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent 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.

    ConsI 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.

    Good place to start out.

    Engineer (Former Employee) Costa Mesa, CA (US)

    ProsEveryone 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave some more group activities to try and raise morale in the company.

    Good employer overall. Typical publicly traded corporation, however, where shareholders come first.

    Commodity Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGood pay, good benefits, leading edge technology

    ConsBig corporate mentality. If sales do not meet forecast, expect layoffs/furloughs to recover for shareholder benefit. In my location, some mid level management tends to have less than professional management skills. Will throw employees under the bus for their own gain.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart paying more attention to what is really going on at the lower levels. Demand more professional behavior from your low to mid level managers. Understand skill levels of employees and promote to their performance rather than their ability to "talk" a good game.
