Company Culture

Culture is know your limitations. Don't try to be a superstar or you will be put in your place. Do your work and go home.

Support from management

There is a widespread feeling that employees take advantage and complain about everything. Thus, management runs a tight ship.

Teamwork

Teamwork is encouraged, but most people have fixed responsibilities and focus on their own tasks.

Freedom to work independently

Stay within the herd, otherwise you may get pushed back.

Gender Equality

Gender equality is above normal. Many top management and the CEO are female.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I think there exists age discrimination in some positions. That is more prevalent based on one's income. The fact is that younger employees are willing to take less salary than older employees.

Career Development

AAA offers many in-house and online seminars, but no tuition reimbursement for college credits.

Overall compensation for your work

Salary based on one's experience and qualifications. Fair pay for position.

Office / Work Environment

They do throw a lot of parties and celebrations, during holidays and other occasions.

Environmental Friendliness

The building is in charge of waste management. While there are two waste baskets at every desk, one for garbage and another for recycling, it has been my experience that the building sanitation people don't care about recycling and throw them together.

Work-Life Balance

If you live near Manhattan, it is an easy commute with buses, trains and easy access. Leave your car at home.

Company Image

Oldest arbitration company in US, Has a good reputation, but other competitors are more technologically advanced and eating away at their market share.

Job Security

Either you fit in, or your don't. Complainers are fired. People stay there very long or are fired.

Handicapped Accessibility

I did not see any handicapped employees, but they can access the building.

Workplace Safety

Very secure building.

Challenging Work

The work is not that challenging and many positions are repetitive tasks.

Inclusive / Diverse

Very diverse. It's NYC.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Tuition reimbursement for college students,

What I like about the company

Friendly co-workers, manageable workload, good compensation and benefits

What I dislike about the company

Culture is very fixed, resistance to change. If management does not like you, they will push you out. Stay within the lines.

What I like about the company

Free coffee, tea, hot chocolate. Plenty of overtime, 70% approval rating by customers

Management was very clicky, not receptive to new ideas and thoughts. Dissent equals "rocking the boat".
