Desktop Support Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 18, 2017
A company run by Intimidation. No planning on any projects, etc, etc. Incompetent management that has no interest in their own employees, Total disregard to employee moral. Management rules with an Iron fist Too concerned with an unsustainable image complex.

Trying to stay below the radar because everyone is afraid to get laid-off.
Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 12, 2015
I used to love working at the AMA. They have laid-off their most knowledgeable and hard-working, opting to keep the lazy and least knowledgeable. HR is awful and management is worse. If you are reading this -- only apply if you don't know how to do the job, you'll be hired and probably promoted.

Great job, but difficult to balance work family balance
Project Associate (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 29, 2014
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.
Pros
free coffee, nice view, secure position
Cons
lack of flexibility
