Productive and Repetitious work place
Mail Clerk (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 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.
Pros
benefits, decent breaks
Cons
no overtime, no advancement, not organized, poor communication

unexplained group layoffs

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.

Unix Operator/Print Controller (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 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.

Thank You, American Medical Association.
Pros
annual christmas party
Cons
working 3rd shift

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
