    I have been working at Alexander Mann Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I’ve worked in recruitment for 10 years and life at AMS is very good. Good opportunities to work with great client brands but what stands out the most is the people across the Americas and Cleveland office.
    Management do listen.

    Cons

    Expectations are high and some of the client accounts are demanding but overall it is a supportive culture across the teams.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening

    Pros

    Nothing- avoid unless you need a job for the time being and need a bit of training in processes because you will be a robot

    Cons

    It shows you how out of touch and defensive the organization is when the Senior Leader of the US responds to a negative post by saying "oh but we have the best retention yet." Yes because your retention in your Cleveland office has been awful for the last 2 years, so compared to what exactly?? Grow up and if someone is giving you criticism for having a negative impact on their life, take it and apologize. You aren't a leader, you check the boxes.

    I have been working at Alexander Mann Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    By far the best company with benefits: work from home, company laptop, Ton of good PTO and sick time, 401k match, performance incentives and 9 holidays paid. At times will show some progress with employee feedback with their yearly survey.

    Cons

    It depends on the account that you are on with the people and management. The key word is Overly a micromanaged company that does not give you room to breathe. Management delegates ton of tasks that normally would go to supervisors on to senior employees. The titles are by far the worst with not understanding the differences with what they do. People are leaving usually leaving around the one year mark with the lack of accountability on management.

    Advice to Management

    Fire some management that is not making your employees happy. Your people are AMS and will respect this company for better culture. Accountability should be on management to make the people be happy and want to stay. Pay raises need to occur more often. End the use of over micromanage and let your employees do their job instead of being annoyed by managed on a daily basis.

    Pros

    DO NOT TRUST POSITIVE REVIEWS! The individuals who are writing the positive reviews are liars. Alexander Mann solutions is falling apart they are in serious need of employees because everyone is leaving the organization. There is no hope for this company to survive in the recruiting market because they do not know how to retain good employees.

    Cons

    Everything the company is a scam filled with political managers that are not even qualified for the positions.
