The best group of people to work with anywhere! I learned a great deal about the CPT code creation process. Management is not always upfront with employees. Appearances are more important than integrity.

Great job, but difficult to balance work family balance
Project Associate (Current Employee), Chicago, ILSeptember 29, 2014
Pros: free coffee, nice view, secure position
Cons: lack of flexibility
This job is secure, and the pay is good (not great) however, I find that flexibility is limited.
While this would be a great place for a single person, it it difficult for those who have a family. I don't get to spend much time with my young child, and I wish I could. I wish I had the flexibility to work from home at least one day a week, but it is not allowed.

Mail Clerk (Current Employee), Chicago, ILSeptember 5, 2012
Pros: benefits, decent breaks
Cons: no overtime, no advancement, not organized, poor communication
A typical day at work is completing each task at the time specified
I learned a lot about the postage machines but was not able to use them because of my current position. The management was okay but can do much better at being in-tuned with the staff. Co-workers are good workers and great team players. The hardest part of the job is that the supervisors were not very good at handling situations. The best part of the job was the benefits and working with the co-workers learning different things at the job.

Unix Operator/Print Controller (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 3, 2012
Pros: annual christmas party
Cons: working 3rd shift
I enjoyed 26 years of employment with the American Medical Association. a typical day at work would be to start the daily backup jobs, monitor and correct errors. Print the output for users.
and deliver all printed output to the users. I learned to be professional, dependable, all aspects of being a computer operator.

I loved the holiday parties, anniversary luncheons given to employees starting with your 5 year anniversary date. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to be secure knowing you had a career as long as you were willing to do your job with the utmost degree of professionalism.

Thank You, American Medical Association.
