      Pros

      I’ve worked at the AMA for years. It’s better than ever. The silver lining of a global pandemic is that it has really brought this company together and in focus. Great work being done around health equity. Proud to work here. We’ve all been working from home since March 20 20 and prove that remote employment works.

      Cons

      Internal red tape and politics.

      Benefits are great, executive management tries to be very responsive to issues as they arise.

      Though executive management is supportive, VP level and business unit level tend to really push people especially during covid for an over-the-top amount of productivity.

      Pros

      Mission-driven organization with passionate and incredibly brilliant colleagues. Good culture, emphasis on equity, incredible work life balance and great benefits, also high salaries for a non-profit. Respectful and engaged colleagues. Gorgeous views from the office! (all windows overlooking Chicago riverfront) I owe so much to the AMA for how well they've treated me over the past few years. This is a great place to work and I'm grateful for the opportunity to work here.

      Good benefits Great passionate intelligent co workers Excellent office and location Community is wonderful Opportunities for travel and conferences Prestigious name Competitive pay for a non profit Great work life balance

      Cons

      Slow to change Slow to innovate Internal promotion is hard to come by They will pay more for external applicants than internal applicants- they tell you that specifically when you apply to a different internal role that you will not be guaranteed the externally advertised salary scale which is information available to internal employees. Upper levels of management are homogenous and tenured in the worst ways
