    Pros

    Great integration into everyday activity. Input that is valued genuinely by the employees.

    Cons

    Stepping into projects that are ongoing often take a while to get aquatinted with. That is what happened during my time this summer. Not anyones fault, but just the bi-product from working with a fast paced company.

    Advice to Management

    Change nothing

    Pros

    They mix up they work quite a bit so it switches up things and the people that work there make it feel welcoming. They give you more hours the better you work. Supervisor position is always a reachable goal you just have to work for it but you get a pay raise & more hours with the position

    Cons

    Pay isn't quite good enough for my expenses


  3. Fun, fast paced, work environment where there is a lot of great talent.

    Pros

    Very collaborative work environment, where co-workers are smart, fun, and friendly (most of the time). Perks are great with the free annual movie passes for yourself and family! Worklife balance is very good.

    Cons

    Not very clearly defined goals sometimes by upper management. Somewhat reactive vs. being proactive and planning for long-term. Departments are somewhat siloed at times. Also, if you are focused on career growth, you will need to push this yourself, not very good mentoring programs at corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Promote better inter-department communication to allow more insight into goals and priorities across departments.

    Pros

    The HQ is awesome I feel like I contribute to my team, and my work is appreciated

    Cons

    Lots of politics involved to get anything done

    Advice to Management

    More training would be great; you tend to learn the processes as you go instead of them being defined in the beginning

    Pros

    Free movies Good work conditions Rewards you for good service / effort

    Cons

    There is some obvious stratification between the management and the crew members, but that's what comes with a job mostly taken by local high schoolers.

    Pros

    Relaxed, open atmosphere...encourages interaction and team work. Great benefits....pizza was brought in for the entire building during a recent USA World Cup soccer game. On site health wellness facilities Covered free parking

    Cons

    So far, I haven't found too many things wrong. I climb a lot of stairs each day, but I could use the elevators...just need the exercise.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks!

    Pros

    Great work environment and the new AMC office is very impressive.

    Cons

    The management team are intelligent but do not have enough training in advance management techniques. Very little in the way of efficient management. The management is also somewhat cold hearted and have no problem dropping a good employee without notice or consideration for that employee.

    Advice to Management

    Further training in efficiency, project, and program management. Also, the cold business approach prohibits good employees from giving their full effort. If a business does not care about their employees then the employee do not care about the business.

    Pros

    For working at AMC, you get to see free movies, and get discounted food during breaks.

    Cons

    Everything. Breaks are rarely given... 90% of the managers are rude and harass the other employees. You are not allowed to call in sick, even with a doctor's note. You will get written up for everything. You will get scheduled outside of your availability

    Advice to Management

    Fire all of the managers, they are too worn out.
