    Great Job for finishing college and living in Chicago

    Advice to Management

    What value do we truly bring anyone who has contact with us? Are we running this place because we want to build something, or because we inherited it?

    Pros

    Good company culture and great management. I liked that the company welcomed new ideas and feedback on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Salary was very low. Also, as one's productivity/efficiency increased, more responsibilities and tasks were added without an increase in compensation.
    Little room for advancement without somebody else retiring or leaving the company.

    Advice to Management

    Make salaries more competitive

    I have been working at AMC - Illinois full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very healthy environment, I am surrounded by positive people who actually want to be there and make a difference! AMC is selective about who they hire and who they take on as a client, and that is intentional, the owners and leadership put a premium on fit, both cultural and structural. Ownership and leadership demonstrate (on a daily basis) servant leadership principles and set the example for their teams, people find purpose here. This is very meaningful work in an environment that recognizes and awards it! Values mean something at AMC!

    Cons

    Few! The location is a bit of a pain, long commute, no public option for me, however most employees live close by, and their smiling faces keep me going, so the drive isn't all that bad when put into context. Pay isn't the greatest, but pay isn't everything. I would much rather be in a positive environment and be satisfied coming to work everyday, than be miserable in a negative environment and have a few extra dollars.

    Advice to Management

    Start a Leadership SIG (open to all), you embody and demonstrate foundational principles that I believe so many people search for and want, but don't know it. I think a lot of people would find enrichment in such a group.
