Internal Wholesaler (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – November 7, 2017
The company is fantastic to their employees. Strong benefits and room for advancement to a point. You can quickly tap out after a couple of promotions. The company’s competitive advantage is gone and they have been too slow at adopting ETFs and SMAs.
Sales Coordinator (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – September 5, 2017

PROJECT MANAGER, CLIENT OPERATIONS (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – August 10, 2017
American Century grew up in Kansas City MO and was lead by individuals who created a mutual fund product line up that could compete and outshine any funds products being offered by more traditional and established financial industry leaders. They cared about their customers and their employees and developed a hometown atmosphere that thrived under their leadership.
Former employee, seems great the first few months-
Registered Representative (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 5, 2017
Due to 1 year non disclosure agreement I can't go into specifics, but was treated great the first few months. 5 different benefits disconinued in 1.5 year time frame. One of the best and worst managers I've ever had. Treated like an expendible piece of garbage, do what they say or be gone. You will be asked to do unethical things eventually if you're there long enough.
Poor treatment, continued benefit reductions, unethical actions
Investment Service Representative (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 5, 2017
Great place to work with excellent benefits! Job wasn't the right place for me personally. But, I did learn a lot from this job regarding both my personal finances as well as just in general finances and investing.
Information Center Associate | Email Specialist (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – February 25, 2017
My experience with ACI has led me to acknowledge that it's the best company I have ever worked for. Managers aimed to help their employees succeed and even helped them apply to other jobs within the company, as my managers did for me on two occasions. They actually care about you, and it's shown. ACI groomed its employees for promotions, management, and other responsibilities. Because ACI invested in their employees' career growth, employees felt motivated and passionate about their work. They are an ethical and fun investment management firm.
Positive work environment where everyone was respected and treated well, great benefits and PTO, better-than-average raises and annual bonuses, fun atmostphere, happy people, job cross-training opportunities, thorough and enjoyable training
Loved working with my fellow officers but managment does not have your back
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – February 3, 2017
Great benefits and plenty of hours to work OT. Was given pretty good raises and a bonus each year. Too bad upper management and HR doesn't have your back. They will fire you on hear say if someone says something bad about you. Management never works holidays or nights. You will be forced to stay over if someone is late.
Productive place to work with ping pong, mini golf, dartboards and shuffleboard.
SAFETY AND SECURITY OFFICER (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – October 10, 2016
*Patrol the interior and exterior of American Century Investments property. *Work the control center which consists of monitoring cameras, alarms, checking in and out access badges as well as answering the phone and exterior call boxes. *Sit a front desks and greet and check in visitors. *Hardest part of the job is the control center as you are the only one in there and you have to do many things at the same time. *Most enjoyable for me is when I get to work on anything related to access control or investigating situations that a rise.
executive assistant in Financial business (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – August 3, 2016
An ordinary day is requests from VPs needing supplies/booklets put together for 50 to 100 people who want to decide on their portfolio for retirement. Preparing PowerPoint presentations, Excel spread sheets, budget reports. Coordinating a recognition event by picking caterers, negotiating price per person, entertainment, etc. Negotiating contracts with hotels for events. I enjoyed my job because I thrive on new challenges and being successful.
I am retired from full-time work and would prefer a part-time position working events in the Frisco area. I am familiar with the new Star facility.
