Decent entry level position
Travel (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHOctober 11, 2015
This position was a good entry level position. It gives a peek into office skills and culture. I took away some computer skills and learned a different side of customer service. The company in general seems to be unclear of what direction it is going in. The constant reorgs and downsizing, especially for the newly acquired companies, do not lend themselves to a feeling of job security. Micro-managing is a big issue with the managers that I worked with directly, but I cannot speak to management at large. Benefits are pretty good--especially vacation/sick time. The amount of work ebbs and flows; there isn't really a typical day. No matter the workload, the projects were rarely challenging and often repetitive. The culture within the department is mostly good. There is a focus on teamwork and team building.
Pros
Vacation time, location, down time
Cons
Pay, micromanagement, down time

Great work/life balance
MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis MN (fka Carlson Marketing)July 22, 2015
Aimia, formerly known as Carlson Marketing Worldwide is limited on job advancement opportunities, but for the jobs they have has done well in providing opportunity for work/life balance with the "work your way" concept.

Dog-eat-dog environment; unstable company
Accounting (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNMarch 12, 2015
Due to the constant changes in leadership & direction, it is each man for himself. There is no team atmosphere and you are discouraged to do tasks outside of your job description. The focus is on company profits and strict procedures rather than servicing clients. There is no training for management and departments are either top heavy with no direction or outsourced.
Pros
Flexible work schedules, good people depending on location
Cons
Frequent layoffs, no teamwork, no leadership with training

Currently downsizing the Dayton, Ohio office
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHFebruary 17, 2015
Anytime an employer downsizes it creates a stressful workplace. They have a great customer base and prior to the layoffs they had an awesome workforce.

Customer Relationship Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHDecember 1, 2013
You are not paid extra to work saturdays. Its very hard work and very little pay. In six months one person has quit every month.

Great people ... incredible stress
Just a former employee (Former Employee) –  Plymouth MNAugust 7, 2013
Aimia carries on the tennents of the old Carlson Marketing - a high stress environment where every fall there is a RIF with hiring frenzy after the first of the year ... Understaffed with high demand for output ... most key staff work 50+ hours a week for mediocre benefits ... Management focus is on cutting costs at all cost ... that is their bottom line.
