    Fragmented

    Faculty (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGood exposure when selected to teach a course. Most courses are well structured, however they may need to be updated to meet current business needs.

    ConsVery difficult to get additional assignments. Very bureaucratic and it seems you can do a great job but you are not tapped to do more. Not enough involvement of the faculty in trying to secure new business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your faculty more and use their talents to build the business

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Depressing

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe Midtown location is pretty nice

    ConsDisorganized, stuck in the past, no communication, cubicle atmosphere

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate with your employees and act like you're a company working in 2014 not 1914.

    A company living in it's past and with no future

    Director (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsSome nice people working there. if you know how to kiss up to the top, you can stay fora long time. good benefits over all. Mid town location is practical. Good place for yes men.

    ConsManagement is out of touch with reality and sees themselves as much more than they are. The offices are old and drab as is the staff. in this day and age, you will be asked to wear a tie. the courses they offer are out of date and they are simply surviving on the inertia of a few giant corporate customers. The industry is moving forward rapidly while the AMA stands and watches. there are no opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to who your customers really are and what they want. But i think it may be too late.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    AMACOM Books, great employees

    Intern (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe employees here are the best part of the company. The products are admittedly dry for people who love books and book publishing, so everyone makes the best of it with good humor and friendly demeanors.

    It's nice to be the publishing arm of a larger, successful company. (You can also take seminars free of charge!)

    Interns are paid well!

    ConsNot the best office space, although there are some decent views of Times Square along the perimeter.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A professional will think many times before diving in this pool. Unless you are desperate to get a job.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsOutstanding policies regarding software usability. The systems and softwares are never updated, always outdated. Still working with JDK verion 1.2.

    Excellent policies on saving money. No wastage of money, not even when the timezone changed in 2008. Money was saved, call center was informed for a manual workaround.

    Always outdated, never current in IT Technology.

    ConsYou will lose touch of your technology.
    You will not get chance to update your skills with changing technology.
    You will have no powers as a manager.
    You will not do performance review of your team, people who work for you.
    You will not have privacy in your office.
    You will have lower precedence compared to contractors.
    You will not sign your contractors time sheets as their manager.
    You will not have right to interview would be employees that you will manage.
    You will not have vacation for first six months.
    You will not have any sick leaves for first six months of your working there.
    You will not get approvals or disapprovals by email, just verbally.
    You will be held accountable for errors and blunders of another department.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your managers with respect so that the managed employees also respect their manager. Practice what is preaached at your institution.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
