Pros

Excellent benefits and compensation package. Contributions to retirement are very generous. Great work/life balance and flexibility.

Resources stretched thin in some areas so a lot of doing more with less.

    Great place to work

    I worked at American Century full-time (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.

    Former Employee - Investment Representative in Kansas City, MO

    I worked at American Century full-time (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.
