    I have been working at American Century as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, friendly people, valuable learning experience.

    Cons

    Headquarters location is not necessarily in the best place, but that's subjective. Personally, I'm not too big of a fan of the midwest, but others may think differently.

  2. Once a premier KC employer is still solid, but benefits and opportunity are now focused on a smaller portion of staff

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

    Pros

    Better culture than most employers
    Clear corporate strategy
    Generally bright, professional staff
    Excellent benefits

    Cons

    An inconsistency in the culture has developed in recent years. Some departments remain true to the Guiding Principles, other areas have not. A once consistent, influential HR department no longer has the staff required to assist and guide leadership in the execution of a consistent culture. As a result, an employee may experience anything from a remarkable to a less than optimal working environement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new emphasis on meritocracy is appropriate, but execution has fallen short. HR staff must be adequate to ensure leadership's execution is kept in check.

    Neutral Outlook
