  1. Good Stepping Stone

    Former Employee - Meeting Planner in Union, NJ
    Former Employee - Meeting Planner in Union, NJ

    I worked at Advanced Health Media full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was quite some time ago, but when I worked at AHM, it had an awesome group of people. I truly enjoyed my job & going to work every day. At 20 years old, that said a lot. AHM had decent perks such as company events & summer hours. It was great being able to leave early or have a day off during the Summer weeks. Good place to gain experience if you're just starting out.

    Cons

    Although there was room for advancement, pay was well below average & increases/raises were very small. Wasn't a great company to stick with long term & the turnover proved that.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay & bonuses would help to keep employees invested longer.

    Some incentives for a short-lead programs being planned successfully.

    Pros

    Technology Office atmosphere Large agency w experienced pp Long tenured staff Reg perf reviews

    Management's hyperfocus on time studies and efficiency. Every request for assistance was met with opposition and a request to prove need with pages of documentation. Teams stopped asking for help.

    Pros

    This is a small company you can see the results of your hard work. I am not just a cog in the machine.

    Cons

    We are growing fast we need more inovative people with specific skills. It takes a while to find the people we need

    Advice to Management

    Tap into your employees for referrals.

    I worked at Advanced Health Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Without a doubt AHM offers a very good balance between work and life. Nice office and great people to work with.

    Cons

    Personal growth and promotions are very hard to come by, it seems like they hire from the outside instead of giving exposure within to allow a reasonable climb up the ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Make clear paths to getting to the next level or at least recognize talent and try to keep it.

    Pros

    Company starting the turn around after a few rough years of management changes and layoffs. Now it's found it's identity and is starting to grow and become exciting again. Management changes and a clear vision are a big plus.

    Cons

    Trying to be nimble like an SMB but operate with Enterprise responsibilities. Morale still on the mend. Many employees that have been there for a long time are resistant to change.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to improve office culture than just having "outings". Improve the office environment and re-invest in the employees. Show the people who stuck with it that they matter.

    I worked at Advanced Health Media full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compared to its competitors, the team at AHM is polished and professional. The company invests in technology and is always looking for ways to leverage evolving technologies for its clients. The company is a fantastic place for ambitious individuals. It does a fantastic job of recognizing talent and hard work and promoting from within the organization.

    Cons

    The company constantly faces challenges with staffing. It is often overstaffed and, as a result, has had several reductions in its workforce from 2008 through 2014. The leadership team has not been able to strategically plan for peaks and valleys within the industry in order to minimize drastic changes in its staffing levels.

    Pros

    Growth and promotional opportunity even if you are not one of the original employees. Great salary and many wonderful people for collaboration.

    Cons

    No understanding of resource allocation. You interview and are hired for an Admin position and the next day, you're told that you are now a QA Specialist. Poor work/life balance and un-realistic expectations set by one of the original founders and his account management team. Owner spent too much time on ego/power trips versus listening and responding to the information being delivered by the people doing the actual work in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Current management should continue the culture change that seems to be working. Don't put employees in positions that do not align with their personal strengths. Continue the progress that you're making with work life balance and stay away from the fluffy awards like those offered by NJ Biz. Just do the what needs to be done to be great without constantly seeking accolades for being great.
