Negative Outlook

I worked at Aimia full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

There are many good hard working people.

Cons

Back in the late 90s when it was Carlson Marketing, the company took up two large business buildings and part of the Carlson Towers. After layoffs due to lack of sales in nearly every year since 2001, it is now down to less than a quarter of one of those buildings with no sign of a real change in this continual downward slide.

Advice to Management

You need a reliable flexible relatively inexpensive platform in order to get sales to then regrow the brand. This has been tried repeatedly for well over ten years and a combination of poor vision, changing vision, internal politics and poor management in general has thwarted all attempts.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Aimia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely flexible with working from home and remote. There's free parking. Most people are very nice. The remodeled office space looks more modern.

    Cons

    Upper management is more concerned with congratulating themselves than paying attention to "the little people". Massive favoritism. Employees are so focused on staying heads down to avoid attracting negative attention that there's little interaction outside of direct working relationships. No clear career paths and few opportunities for lateral movement.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring consultants to tell you what to do. Stop hiring former consultants to fill revolving executive roles. Stop the endless employee surveys and actually listen to the employees for real.

    I have been working at Aimia full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of talented people who come there then leave.
    Lead the world in Loyalty Management

    Cons

    Seems to be no plan moving forward. Too many fragmented verticals.
    No real culture; global VPs vie for power leaving workers to scramble to make them happy.
    Reliance on outside consultants to tell them what the teams already know.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking to consultants and focus on your people.
