Good place to work at

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Worked here as an admin before being made redundant. It’s a fast paced environment and not every day is the same. People I worked with on the team were amazing and extremely helpful.Flexible working is very useful as you can pick and choose your working hours to suit your needs and work from home too. It’s a very chilled out environment as long as you did your job. My manager was great, always pushed me to do well and took interest in my development with the company. Monthly meetings took place with the whole office where news would be shared across whole center and sometimes we would have speakers present to talk about their journey at AMS. Monthly star of the month would also be picked and given a little incentive.

Pros

Flexible working, buying extra holiday, working from home, personal development, opportunities to pick up extra tasks and learn

Cons

Maybe too secretive at times, and treating everything too secret from staff, Just be honest in the beginning instead of asking at last minute.

Leadership need to take a good look within

Don’t know what has happened to this company but In all my years here I have never experienced such poor, discriminatory treatment as I have in recent months. Handling of general performance management, recent furlough and redundancies by middle and senior management was shocking and disappointing. Decisions massively biased, in most cases management structures have remained keeping them safe, whist large amount of operational staff are let go. You have to question who is agreeing to these reverse pyramid structures which is only going to lead to operational staff on the ground burning out. Highly political environments where decisions are not made on merit but who you get on with and don’t challenge.Current big “focus” on de&i and wellbeing is disingenuous to say the least. They are Getting staff to talk on these matters but It’s all a bit safe, painting AMS in a good light and supportive when in real life situations they don’t want to know.

Pros

Salary and benefits excellent, big client names

Cons

Inexperienced middle and senior managers, cronyism, biased and discriminatory decisions, no consequences unless you pursue legally, Ineffectual and insincere leadership, promote the company as being open and inclusive, in reality don’t want to deal with related issues raised.

Positive environment, hard-working and supportive

A strong work from home culture in many areas of the business connected to responsibility and accountability for your work. Collaborative environment, honesty and supportive attitude seen as important to deliver projects and expand knowledge. Management is generally supportive but business pressures remain so there is crunch points. Hardest part of the job is managing across different geographies, countries and cultures. The most enjoyable part of the job was the variety of clients and challenges you get to work on.

Avoid at all costs.

Horrendously overworked, underpaid, have it recognised and then promised the world to rectify and nothing happened. Stressed & went off for 4 weeks only to come back & be told that sickness policy had been changed & I was being penalised Financially for taking time out. Admin account onsite, please avoid the heartache.

Great place to learn

I worked with some great people both on site and at head office at AMS. It is a great culture and will offer great exposure. The opportunity to move accounts and the support you receive is also a positive.

Flexibile,trusted and forward-thinking

AMS values your expertise and in reward treats you as an adult. It's not about hours and being seen, its about output and performance. The company truly wants to do their best for the clients and will often go above and beyond to delight. The culture supports remote working, is family friendly and there is always support if you need it. The success and continued growth is well deserved.

Pros

Flexibility, training, salary and benefits

Cons

Hard to network remotely

not the best

ok company however working for them in Northampton no help from the company managing realistic training, no flexibility was offered as advertised by a client manager in Northampton quiet frankly some of the clients these guys have a habit of going through contract staff like they are easily replaceable as opposed to supporting them or filling in the gaps . if your gonna take a contract on with these guys I wouldnt move as you will have no job security really.

Talent Acquisition Specialist

Working in contingency workforce solutions, volume recruitment. A lot of calls to make sometimes feels like working in a call center. Roles are often put on hold or canceled.

Two-faced enviroment, bandaids over issues

The admin side is easy enough, stable hours, you always know what to expect. There were a lot of issues with the internal systems, and no one seems to care about fixing those issues - making an easy job suddenly very difficult.

Pros

Good kitchen

Cons

Software issues

negative

need to work above and beyond in terms of hours to try and keep head above water with very little reward for the extra miles you go to. could do with hiring more staff which would solve the problem and relive the workload of the team but they seem reluctant to do so
