    I have been working at American Management Association full-time

    Pros

    Well branded company with a large product line, great content, and ever-evolving efforts to meet client needs

    Cons

    hard to find any cons with the company. Change happens and senior management recently changed, but that could be a good thing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at American Management Association full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Organization continuing to go through a digital transformation while focusing on excellence in professional education. Nice to be in a position where the organization's products focus on talent and organization development.

    Cons

    Not a place for those that are not interested in constantly challenging themselves to find better ways of servicing clients.

    Office is in a very central location in NYC and employees have a lot of experience with what they do

    Cons

    Not the best company culture and some internal processes could be made more efficient

    Advice to Management

    Work to create a more team-oriented spirit where workers have positive relationships with each other and collaborate to achieve the best results

    I worked at American Management Association full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The CEO seemed very interested in the lives of the staff and obviously wanted them to be happy and well cared for.

    Cons

    Middle management was obviously either overloaded or unwilling to take on more. I was offered a position I didn't apply for and ended up with tasks outside of my job description, and usually with out training. An average work day was about 16 to 17 hours and I almost always was coming in on the weekends or taking work home. It was evident when I was there that the department I was in needed more staff, as each staff member was working with similar hours and volume.

    Advice to Management

    I had a manager scream at me, "I don't care, just get it done." This set the tone for my leaving as it was unprofessional and created a negative environment.

    Pros

    There are no pros to highlight....maybe the view from the breakroom.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, no appreciation for employees, raise freeze (except for those on the board of directors). Unprofessional beyond belief. This company needs to practice what they teach.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the people at the top that are running this company into the ground.

    Pros

    There are merely some nice people there.

    Cons

    Don't hang up your coat. They love to lay people off.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that you are a not-for-profit organization, not a money-making company.

    Pros

    It was an honor to work at this world class provider of management education

    Cons

    The only thing I can think of was that we couldn't implement new ideas as fast as we would have liked

    Advice to Management

    Take even more risks

    I have been working at American Management Association full-time

    Pros

    The NYC location is good for commuting, which is good since regular telework is not an option.

    Cons

    3 major rounds of layoffs over the last 7 years. Total compensation for senior management increased for at least 3 years, while at the same time regular staffers saw hiring & salary freezes, full-time positions reduced to part-time, the elimination of the match to their savings and investment plan, and a significant workforce reduction. For 2 years straight, layoffs have occurred right before Christmas.

    Pros

    Convenient and exciting Times Square location.

    Cons

    Ineffective, uncaring upper management. Continued to award themselves very large bonuses when economy tanked, while freezing salaries for staff. For the second year in a row they have had a large layoff just before Christmas. The outlook isn't good for the organization's survival.

    Advice to Management

    Start appreciating your good people who go the extra distance for you. Change your business model or you will soon be extinct.
