Excellent Company
Senior Account Administrator Learning Quest Kansas (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJune 5, 2013
Pros: i learned about financial marekts and investing.

I received phone calls from financial advisers who sold Learning Quest, the Kansas 529 College Savings Plans to their clients. I would work through service or processing issues to provide an excellent customer experience,. I also wrote correspondence for the Service Department.

Conservative company
Investment Specialist (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOSeptember 12, 2012
Pros: great benefits, considerable amount of pto, lots of free food throughout the year.
Cons: after reaching a certain plateau, difficult to move up. outside hiring for coveted fund research and management positions.
American Century Investments will never be in the news for a scandal. The policies and procedures reflect a conservative mentality in all areas of the business to keep this true. At times its easy to relate to frustrated clients who are working though certain requirements. Although, I believe the benefits out weigh the costs.

The founder has always – more... been very generous to the employees and the company has remained this way.

Upper management and fund managers frequently holds seminars during the lunch hour. These provide a fascinating insight to their daily work. However, after a point, these seemed to tease me since the ability to grow within the company was limited. – less

Productive and fun place with a friendly atmosphere
Middle Office Operations Internship (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOMay 31, 2012
* I would work on 4 account reconciliations every morning and 1 in the afternoon. I was also a liasion between brokers and custodians for trade settlements.
* The floor that I worked on was extremely friendly. The managers, even the ones that I didn't work for, knew everyone on the floor and would stop and talk to me throughout the day.

A rewarding workplace with outstanding work/life balance
Brand Manager (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOApril 18, 2012
Pros: benefits, compenstation, pto & location
Cons: culture, quality of work
I sincerely enjoyed my time with American Century. The culture was undergoing some significant change while I was there and this was accelerated by the market collapse in 2008.

While I was caught up in the layoffs due to the market decline I still keep in touch with many of co-workers because we formed such close relationships.

I'd definitely consider – more... returning to American Century for the right opportunity. – less
