    Pros

    If you want to obtain airline and hotel points you can easily do so here.

    Cons

    There are many downsides of this company. I rated everything a (1) based solely on my experience with the company. This was an honest assessment and not one based on a that of a disgruntled employee. As a new employee there was no support or training from management or co-workers. From my experience your schedule for travel was given to you at last minute. For example you may be told on Friday that you need to book a flight Sunday for the week, returning late Friday evening. There is no per-diem for your time away from home. Only a very modest food allowance. The company is an appraisal company that doesn't require you take any appraisal courses during your employment. They do not support their employees in becoming licensed, I think the main reason for this is because they want to keep your pay as low as possible. I know people who have been there close to a decade and have barely gotten raises and no this was not due to performance issues. This company also does not support diversity in anyway be it ethnic or gender. The benefits are not good in any way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say the company needs to be revamped from the top down. Senior management needs to place experienced leaders with good communication skills in place of the inexperienced managers who are currently running many of the offices. A comprehensive training program should be implemented for new hires. Licensing should be required for employees who are preforming duties of an "appraiser". The company should assist these employees in obtaining licensing be it by having deadlines for qualifying education or making it mandatory to have an up to date assignment log. The main issue I see with American Appraisals is the incompetent, disorganized employees at all levels.

    I have been working at American Appraisal full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It depends on where you are working. In some places, life can be really enjoyable. Generally speaking, nice and skilled colleagues and very interesting job. Possibility of changing roles. Good training.

    Cons

    It's a very demanding job, so it's difficult to balance the work time with the life time. Not real possibility of career, unless turn over or resignation of the upper levels. Not a real network spirit, quite the contrary. Lack of "useful" communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve synergies and sharing of common goals and best practice. Increase communication.
