    Pros

    The culture at AAM is positive, upbeat and relaxed. However, they still know when to put their thinking hat on and get down to business. It's no Google but the environment is open and clean, and the location is great as you will avoid traffic on your commute outside the 1604 loop.

    Cons

    It is hard to find when telling others where you're located since the building is hidden.

    I worked at Advisors Asset Management full-time

    Pros

    Pay was reasonable, coworkers were nice and helpful when help was needed, feels like a small company.

    Cons

    Some micromanaging by management and pay dropped for many after an internal restructuring. Some managers were more concerned about gossiping, eavesdropping/concerning themselves with other department's business, Facetiming with their kids/husband and being completely unprofessional with their actions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop restructuring internally and pay employees what they are truly worth.

    The company is small and offers a great potential for growth and change in career.

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for, management is always striving to create a better work environment. If you work hard you will be rewarded, if you're not interested in working hard I would not apply.

    Cons

    There could be some attention to toxic employees, a few individuals that have been around awhile bring down moral.

    I have been working at Advisors Asset Management full-time

    Pros

    The flexibility the company offers for working from home is a huge plus that not many other companies offer.

    Cons

    Some downsides are that not all departments are treated as part of the company. Some locations come across as they are better than other locations and should get more rights and freedoms. It is difficult at times to have a company spread out like it is, to feel like we all matter and are an integral part of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the whole picture of our organization. Not just sales people attribute to the success of this company. There are some very loyal employees that have been with the company for a long period of time, acknowledging their loyalty to the company could go a long way.

    Pros

    This is a professional yet friendly environment. The company is small so all learn to work together well.

    Cons

    Because the company is small, some things like marketing materials take longer to receive because the work is done in house and not outsourced.

    Pros

    The technology is a plus and makes efficiencies in your day- Working on a good team can make your work life easier-

    Cons

    This firm unfortunately exploits it's RIA, broker-dealer & institutional customers- business model is to profit from excess markups- UIT fees also high & keep rising-other complex structured products w/ high fees that are a compliance nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    It's hard to feel good about firm when you're expected to "squeeze" your broker-dealer & RIA customers to make a profit.
