Director, Media Editorial & Employee Comms (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 30, 2015
Role is demanding but rewarding. Really love my team and the collaborative approach to work. This is a great company to learn so much about health care and to serve in an impactful way to improve the health of our nation.
Mail Clerk (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 5, 2012
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.
benefits, decent breaks
no overtime, no advancement, not organized, poor communication
Staff Assistant IV, Advocacy Resource Center (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 20, 2015
The AMA has offers a very busy work environment, detailed oriented meetings and projects, good management and co-workers. The hardest part may be leaving but the easy part looking forward to building new relationships.
Coding Analyst II (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 18, 2015
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.
Trying to stay below the radar because everyone is afraid to get laid-off.
Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 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.
manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 14, 2015
The AMA is a very diverse organization involved in many different lines of business. This is a good organization for someone who is just starting out in their career and is in search of a job that offers the ability to grow and learn.
Unix Operator/Print Controller (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 3, 2012
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.
Excellent place to work and offers work life balance
Executive Sales, Business Services Group (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 15, 2015
Hard working people, open communication, positive attitudes and great work ethic. I started my career here in the late 90's, left to pursue other endeavors and returned back in 2011. It was meant to be.
Great job, but difficult to balance work family balance
Project Associate (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 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.
