Ametek is a technology holding company ... thats about it
Project Electronics Design Engineer (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – May 18, 2016
I know about Ametek P&I, very little innovation, mostly sustaining engineering work, everybody looks like the are busy wearing many hats but there are rarely new projects to work on.
they removed that fat in the 90s and now there is barely any bone left, they changed cleaning companies about 6 times to cut cost and almost got to the point of bringing your own toilet paper.
I was recently laid off from there, so maybe I am still sour, but read the other reviews. Forget advancement if you are in a technical role, its a big old boy network, they do bend over for customers, alot way too much if you ask me. The customer can say the sky is green in Ametek would say yes.
They will not lay you off if you are entrenched in a product (for the most part) because you will be the sole project everything (service, sustaining, manager, manufacturer ... etc).
also, big on CYA, from the CEO all the way down to the lowest level. Also, they like to throw people under the bus, and very little open and honest communications.
if you are part of old boy network then you will be almost guaranteed employment, thats about it.
many to count in a single line.
