    I worked at Aimia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Offer great services to their clients.

    Cons

    Found upper management did not engage their employees. Also think the company does a great job at sharing ideas but no mentoring within the organization. Everyone either has their own group of people they interact with or are too busy to be helpful with one another and build relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your executives are spending the time they need with their direct reports and decrease certain favoritism.

    I have been working at Aimia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Finally got a great cadre of people in the US who behave and act like a team. Many of the negative comments are from people who weren't up to snuff in my opinion. Leadership quality is strong. Focus is clear. Great location downtown.

    Cons

    Need to get to critical mass faster - but definitely en route. No downsides other than getting to scale.

    Advice to Management

    Hold the line! Keep aggressively hiring great people and let the past be in the past.

    I have been working at Aimia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Yes, the company has had to make some adjustments last year but the past twelve months have been extremely positive and the road ahead looks even better. I have worked at a number of companies over the past 20+ years and not many of them have the same level of opportunity, respect for work-life balance, fulfilling work, and a generally good "vibe" as Aimia.

    Cons

    Actually it is a bit hard to come up with anything negative to say about the company but I'd recommend everyone stay focused on what's working well today and the future will be bright!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Change can be hard and leading a group through a transformation even harder. There's a lot of good here and the potential for greatness - for everyone - is within your grasp.

    Pros

    Very smart and fun people. Amazing new downtown Minneapolis office space. Winning new business with some very cool brands. Amazing culture to work in.

    Cons

    Nothing very bad to share. There has been a lot of change in strategy over the years but that appears to be a thing of the past.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on the course and support your people's growth and development.

    Pros

    Supportive company that encourages people to set up their work day and hours in a way that works best for them. Great team members, supportive and fun. Exciting - fast paced work in an organization that will invest time and money in you.

    Cons

    I don't really have anything negative to say. I simply left for new opportunities.

    I worked at Aimia full-time

    Pros

    The people here are great. I enjoy coming into work.

    Cons

    I didn't feel the benefits are as competitive as they could be, average.

    Advice to Management

    Personally, I didn't feel like everyone was cohesively working toward a common goal.

    Pros

    Wide range of innovative services to corporate clients

    Cons

    Internally focused... not client-centered. unrealistic expectations given the disruption caused by "top-down" management practices ...

    Advice to Management

    Transition to focusing and serving the personnel closest to the customers. Adjust pricing to competitive market conditions over that of predetermined lofty company stock growth goals.

    Pros

    Located in a nice city. New office space. Allows you to work from home at times.

    Cons

    This company has been irrelevant for several years now in the US. Lost direction and constant turnover have only made conditions worse both for employees and clients. I wouldn't be surprised if the global divisions of Aimia sold off the US altogether just to save itself. It would be hard to recommend this company to a friend knowing how badly is runs internally - misuse of money, broken product offerings and management that cannot get its act together.

    Advice to Management

    Management is not looked at as "leaders." There is immense distrust. Pick a direction and stick to it. Focus on your core competency and be strong in that area. Invest in your products and see them through to launch. Spend a little less on management's car allowances, flights, apartments in other cities and misc wasteful spending. The culture feels toxic and some of your employees are quietly waiting for the next layoff so they can move on.

    Pros

    There is a solid core of employees who have a great passion for their company and products.

    Cons

    Top management changes often and with each change new directions. It does appear the company (at least the IT piece) is flapping around in the wind, with a solid plan for the near and far future.

    Advice to Management

    Look to your people and listen to their input. There are contractors who contribute greatly and are of course largely ignored.
