    I worked at AMC Entertainment full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    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.

    I worked at AMC Entertainment full-time (less than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
