Politically charged environment
Executive direction is uncertain; lack of support to those who fall out of favour. Outside of the executive there are many very good people who care about the work they are doing, and are truly member-focused.

Poor Management
The company itself is a great place to work. Salary didnt change with the economy. Drivers get treated like royalty but inside staff are at the bottom of the totem pole. If your looking to be a driver, reccomend. If your looking at inside staff, there are probably better options out there.

Horrible place to work
If you like having a soul this place is not for you. They will break you down so you have no life at all. Will fire you for any reason they can find.

Good place to work.
The people make it easy to come to work everyday. I met great people while working there. Benefits were great and I learnt a lot.
The atmosphere and people made the company great. The training especially if you have no prior experience. I took so much knowledge from that place.

Fast paced environment where you learn new skills everyday
Management was terrible. Did not feel supported by them when issues with customers or other staff members arose.

Salary was not enough to live on your own.

Travel Knowledge
I have learned so much about where to travel in the world. I enjoy selling travel insurance so that members have peace of mind when they travel.
I enjoy working with my co-workers.

It can be a very fast paced environment, selling insurance, taking photos, selling IDPS, answering the phone, making appointments for travel counsellors.


We do Potlucks for every season and many other fun things during the year.

Double Standards
The AMA has a rot within it caused by inept and punitive executive management. It suffers from a lack of vision and the egos of the executives who are running the company into the ground. Pet projects of the CEO are green lighted by a board that is hand selected by the President. Any reasonable feedback that is contrary to the official narrative is quickly shut down. The only people that advance are syncophabts who gobalong with the bad decisions or those that manage to navigate in spite of The toxicity.Run far and fast from this company. If hired, they have started paying less to scale and will demand more of you than is healthy.

Good place to work
Good place to work. The people make it easy to come to work everyday, although the pay & salary increases are minimal for work put in. Communication between departments through the delivery chain could use some work.

Shady and underhanded
This company seems great from the outside, unfortunately when you learn of the inner workings this is not so. I see that the other reviews for work/life balance are pretty high, they told me that for a better work life balance in a high stress position (after I was put on unpaid stress leave) that they would only give me one day off a week. You be the judge.

Hierarchy and micromanagement
Their brand is highly regarded.
Their insurance company and travel agency are solid businesses.

Their Driver Education business became more profitable and had a great quality delivery model through a highly effective leader for many years.

Their senior management was protocol driven. Micromanagement was a way of life so strategies moved slowly.

Productive Company
AMA is overall great company to work for. They are flexible and have a great benefit program, along with a pension plan that you do not see too often these days.

Okay place to work
As a PM consultant my immediate customer in IT was excellent, very supportive and understanding of the processes, always wanted to make the right choices for the right reasons. However there is senior management that had their own agendas that did not match project stated goals. AMA was a difficult place to complete a project that did not get off track from the original stated goals and outcomes for the project.

Handling claims on daily basis
AMA slogan is ‘Treat you like family and friends’ only towards members. This doesn’t apply towards staff. Hard-work, dedication and loyalty gets one nowhere. It’s a matter of how much one is liked by management.
Pros
Friendly staff
Cons
Micro-managed and lots of favouritism
