    Pros

    It's great to come to work knowing your profits fund a greater purpose. Our founder was a wonderful, insightful visionary. He started Amerian Century Investments with a greatt philosophy and then parlaid his wealth into the creation of the Stowers Insttitute of Medical Research in Kansas City, Missouri. GO onlikne & read our story.

    Cons

    We're not perfect, but what company is? Most heavy complainers haven't worked anyywhere else. Our leaders need to have a broader perspective, beyond their own responsibiliies....the good of the whole.

    I worked at American Century full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    ACI had amazing management and culture. A terrific place to work and grow. I miss them very much, wish they had not closed the Denver office. Administrative work by it's very nature is very repetitive, but ACI management always provided me an opportunity to take on new challenges.

    Cons

    Administrative work by it's very nature is very repetitive, but ACI management always provided me an opportunity to take on new challenges.

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, friendly people, valuable learning experience.

    Cons

    Headquarters location is not necessarily in the best place, but that's subjective. Personally, I'm not too big of a fan of the midwest, but others may think differently.
