    I have been working at Amata Office Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Room to move upward as the company continues to grow. They also send people to paralegal school, and any work done as a paralegal is added to the pre-existing paycheck. The company cares about its employees and clearly looks for the best benefits for them.

    You aren't constricted to your job title, and can do other duties should you wish; initiative is often rewarded.

    Close community of employees and clients means going to work is nice. Employees are supportive of one another.

    Cons

    No real HR department, so you have to be patient with requests there. Formal training doesn't exist; you have to be willing to go with the flow and learn as things come up but you are also never short of people to reach out to who can help.

    For those unwilling to wear many hats this isn't the company for you, for those who don't like to be confined to certain duties/like to excel this is a great environment for it.

    Pros

    When you start at Amata Office Solutions, you'll never want to leave! The services provided are amazing and what makes it even better are the people who provide the services. You won't find a shared office space provider with a team more dedicated to helping your business succeed!

    Cons

    As a fast growing business, days seem to fly by!

    I have been working at Amata Office Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I never thought I would get into real estate, but I couldn't pass up this opportunity. They have been in business for 13 years, but now they are really expanding the company. The partners of Amata are always on-site, open to discuss any deals/strategies, and everything they have promised has come true. Plus, they supported us getting our Commercial Broker's license to further our career in Real Estate, so the sky is the limit ! While Amata is the largest privately-owned provider of executive office space in the city, the partners still try to make it feel more like a family rather than a company. I'm glad to be working for them, and excited about the future with Amata.

    Cons

    I really do not have any cons about Amata. Sometimes the days can be long (but what career that has huge future potential doesn't?). Like any sales job, it is hard work and you must put in the activities to be successful, but the rewards are definitely worth it. .

    Advice to Management

    Continue expanding office centers outside of the loop. Keep creating a positive culture, and one where everyone can succeed.

    I have been working at Amata Office Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been a part of the sales team over a year now and in this role it's both challenging and highly rewarding. The compensation plan rewards performance/production, benefits are generous and we are encouraged to max out our expense accounts entertaining clients so we can get to know them and their business on a deeper level. The company's business model is unique in the commercial real estate industry

    The people in which I work with are kind, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Management and ownership are accessible, supportive, open to hearing new ideas and forward thinking. There's a laser-like focus on customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    As with any privately held, quickly growing company there are growing pains--but management is quick to address these, learn from mistakes made ultimately resulting in a better customer and employee experience.

    I have been working at Amata Office Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is never a dull or boring day in this industry or within this company. Every day is something new and keeps the staff on their toes. From programming phones, setting up clients in their new offices, hosting and planning client after hour events to moving out clients from their office to traditional space, we are constantly on the move here! You'll never find an Amata personnel just sitting around. What's exciting is that we all work together to get the job done and get it done right!

    Cons

    Some days can be overwhelming with the amount of work thrown our way.....it seems like there is not enough time in the day to get it done

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key and would help with time management on those overwhelming days

    Pros

    There is always onsite management when needed. Clients and staff are supported and never left without an answer.
    Since Amata Office Solutions is the largest privately owned shared space provider in Chicago, upper management goes out of their way to make their employees and clients happy!

    Cons

    Many times the facilities are left short handed which can lead the staff scrambling to help others and projects can be delayed.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring more personnel to support the clientele at each location would help the productivity levels sky rocket which leads to higher revenue and productivity.
