I worked at American Management Association as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

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

Cons

Very 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 ManagementAdvice

Trust your faculty more and use their talents to build the business

    I worked at American Management Association full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some 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.

    Cons

    Management 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 the courses they offer are out of date and they are simply surviving on the inertia of a few giant corporate customers.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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at American Management Association as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The 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!

    Cons

    Not the best office space, although there are some decent views of Times Square along the perimeter.
