Great place to work

Former Employee - Business Analyst  in  Kansas City, MO
Former Employee - Business Analyst in Kansas City, MO

I worked at American Century full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Solid benefits, including excellent contributions by the company in my retirement investments...miss this now that I am outside of financial services. I also had access to training and the tools needed to do the job.

Cons

Engaged in training on a tool or methodology that I was later told I not going to be able to implement...if that is to be the case, let's make that decision in advance before taking the training.

    I worked at American Century full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, decent management, and outstanding benefits.

    Cons

    base salary was low, especially since there was no option for commission on sales. Opportunity for upward movement seemed like a popularity contest, instead of being based on true merit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Individualize performance plans for each team member and work on personal leadership skills.
