Sr Group Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 15, 2018
The AMA is wonderful company to work for which provides many opportunities for its employees. Diversity and inclusion is important to the AMA, its management and Board of Trustees officers.

Digital Analyst (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 27, 2018
Very slow growth and stagnated career path. Work-Life balance is good but no flexibility in terms of WFH. Benefits are good but not the best and limited ownership opportunities

Better not have differing views
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJanuary 29, 2018
Views are progressively liberal and you had better not think differently or you'll be on your way out. Their only goal is to further their liberal political agenda.

Legal Secretary (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 15, 2017
Old man's club. Not a great place to work if you don't want to move up in the company. Ok if you want to get into other divisions but there was no flexibility.

Horrible management that plays favorites
Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 1, 2017
No opportunity for career advancement unless you suck up to the managers in your department. Every department has a stuck up feel to it and not a comfortable place to work at. STAY AWAY!!

Nice place to work, but no direction
Application Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 25, 2017
The American Medical Association is over 100 years old and provides some lobbying for the medical community. but due to costs, most doctors join a specialist group rather than the AMA.
As such, it was always a question of where the organization would be looking to save money and to get revenue.
Pros
friendly, subsidized lunchroom
Cons
questionable future

Great Place to Work
Product Development Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 2, 2017
The AMA is a great place to work. I really enjoyed working on mission related products to advance the health of the nation. It is amazing to see the impact you're having when the products you've been working on finally go to market.

A good place to work, salary is competitive and the Associations Mission is important
Sr. Manager - Health Solutions Group (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 25, 2017
Depending on your career ambitions and whether you are comfortible working for an Association (they have generally different goals than a for profit company). Then I think the AMA is a good place to work. If you are looking for a competitive career you may find the AMA less challenging than you would like.
Pros
Great Office Space, Name Recognition

A bloated, rudderless ship of bureaucratic nonsense.
AMPAC Membership Marketing Senior Clerk (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 30, 2017
The mast has snapped off, the rudder is broken, the captain is insane but the ship is still floating. That is the AMA in a nutshell. Once called the worst lobbying outfit in the history of lobbying, there is a reason for that. But the pay is great and the hours are easy. So if you just want to keep your head down and get a paycheck until the next round of random layoffs, it works well. Just dont work for the empty suit doing PAC fundraising.

This is a great place to work and learn about several areas of interest. You work heard but you learn a lot as well. This is a fast paced type of office.

This company tried to be modern and cutting edge but they can't fully commit to that when they're unwilling to allow their employees to take advantage of the technology and resources available.
Cons
Horrible communication and managers with egos bigger than the building
