    I have been working at AMC - Illinois full-time

    Pros

    Whenever I have to consult with other employees throughout the company to solve a specific issue, need assistance, etc, every single person has been so helpful. Very welcoming environment where everyone smiles at each other. My manager is awesome and great at explaining things and the reasoning behind certain tasks. I knew nothing about this industry when I began but have learned so much about it as I go.

    Cons

    It takes a very long time to accrue PTO, so it is difficult to plan vacations. Would recommend giving all allotted PTO at the beginning of the year and allowing employees to use it responsibly throughout the year at their convenience.

    I have been working at AMC - Illinois part-time

    Pros

    Great people who work together really well and are invested into the company.

    Cons

    Very rigid structures, not a flat company at all. Pay is below average for the industry but in return, AMC expects you to behave/work as if they're paying you top dollars. High turnover rate.

    I worked at AMC - Illinois full-time

    Pros

    Family-owned business, culture is great, casual atmosphere, perfect place to get to know about the industry and learn a ton

    Cons

    Pay for lower-level employees is not very competitive, change is hard to come by, a position needs to "open up" in order to be promoted most of the time

    Advice to Management

    Create a culture where promotions are based on merit and not just on available positions, more change and less streamlining, more staff and less client sharing

    Pros

    friendly people in a great environment

    Cons

    If you have a great supervisor, you are golden. Otherwise, you will need to move departments or leave the company. Bad managers are mostly overlooked by upper management, even when 5+ employees leave due to that bad manager.

    Advice to Management

    Losing quality staff members due to lack of confrontation of bad managers is a shame.

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

    Pros

    Great Job for finishing college and living in Chicago
    Great people to work with
    Everyone Really nice

    Corporate structure inefficient

    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?

    I worked at AMC - Illinois full-time (More than 3 years)

    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
