    I worked at AMS (Accounting Management Solutions) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Get to meet terrific people, working in a wide variety of industries, with great clients.

    Cons

    Low salaries, with a total lack of appreciation for employees. Total focus is on prolonging engagements and increasing profits.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on doing the right thing, in the client's best interest vs. making money. Will result in greater success for clients, happier employees and greater profits.

    I worked at AMS (Accounting Management Solutions) full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Used to be a decent Company to work for with some Fortune 1,000 clients in the fold. Have gone downhill in recent years due to lack of (a) brand awareness, (b) marketing to middle-market companies, (c) and loss of experienced senior level consultants.

    Cons

    Poor management, lack of vision and lack of how to brand AMS. Very poor treatment of consultants over the last year and a half, with most being either reduced in hours, or cut altogether. No respect for experienced consultants, and ever since the acquisition by CLA, all they care about is billable hours. Unfortunately, nobody of note is left at a senior level to provide such service offerings. Have lost so much market...

    Advice to Management

    Keep on serving the non-profit segment, as that is the only market where you can now compete (no competition). What a waste of a once decent company. Would not expect them to be around in their current structure much longer. Will be absorbed into CLA / CAST with the balance of the underwhelming management team let go.

        Pros

        Reimbursed for parking expenses to be disputed by client, blah blah

        Clients were incompetent and had psychiatric issues. Looking to blame AMS workers so they wouldn't get fired.

        I worked at AMS (Accounting Management Solutions) full-time

        Pros

        Used to be a nice place before bought by Clifton LarsonAllen

        Cons

        All they care about is billable hours. Management does not care what is going on in your life or at the client as long as you are billable. Laid people off and reduced hours for all but a few. Management is overworked and grouchy, resulting in a hostile work environment.

        Advice to Management

        Close the place down. It's time.

        I worked at AMS (Accounting Management Solutions) full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Working for a mall company means your contribution to the company's bottom line is felt and seen by everyone.

        Cons

        Oppressive management of the business, no work-life balance, owner is not a pleasant person and is not clear in what he wants.

        Advice to Management

        Treat your employees with respect, kindness and trust and they will do the same for you in return. There's so much distrust and insecurity which comes from the top.
