Production Line Assembly worker (Current Employee) – Horsham, PA – June 24, 2018
As a primary part of the team, I work together with a unit of employees to manufacture world-wide retractable, electric, and digital reels with customer specifications as well as custom equipment/reels used in a wide variety of applications. etc.
Ametek is a good company. The manufacturing arena is difficult to manage. Resources that are needed are not easily available due to tight budget constraints. Lack of resources can be frustrating when assigned a task that has a high cost.
Sr. Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 24, 2018
I earned experience and knowledge of Power converters; however the work load is not well balanced The hardest part of the job is at the end of each quarter when we are focused on shipping product as fast as we can and usually we care more about customer's money rather than customer's satisfaction
Drafter/Designer (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – April 7, 2018
A typical day at work was busy. I got more experienced in iso documentation, and did a major rohs conversion project for all products. My to managers are excellent. The workplace culture is to complete the task at hand with the help of many. The hardest part of the job is that it was only contract work. The most enjoyable part of the job is the worker who helped me learn the ropes.

Sr. Applications Engineer / Presently Employed (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA 92121 – March 7, 2018
Employees are not seen as an asset - staffing levels are far below what is required for the expected results. The blame for not meeting goals is placed on the employees. No investment in innovation - The basic plan is to buy up competitors to remove the need to address the market needs for innovative , quality and cost effective products.
Advice to Management
Goals should be achievable. Start adding staff to improve product quality. Stop chasing revenue. If you produce a good product that the market needs and support these properly - the revenue will follow.
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – Berwyn, PA – March 5, 2018
AMETEK is a great place to work. The work-life balance is excellent. During the slow period you find yourself able to spend a lot of time with your family. You also get to travel to various business units.
I loved the Hr department they were real genuine people and they naturally cared about their employees. On the warehouse floor I really didn't see as much profession as in the office. There is a lot of nagging and bickering and to be completely honest a whole lot of lies. There are improper managers in leader positions and they need to be moved due to lack of skills.
Assembler (Current Employee) – Peck, MI – February 18, 2018
When i was there i went to work sick and the floor manager told me that i was stealing from the company for being there. They dont like when you call in if your sick or when you come to work sick. Very hard to please or advance in company.
