    Pros

    The people that you work with is the ONLY reason to stay.

    Cons

    Benefits are not what they used to be and not worth using anymore. They Don't look for the best in anybody anymore. They used to love to promote from within, but no longer. Instead of promoting someone for being good at what they with a desire to learn more, they would rather pay a young kid straight out of school to learn how to do something and accept their lack of knowledge and experience as reason to pay them less.

    I worked at American Century Investments full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is plenty of room for growth, especially if you want to work directly with clients. Management is fantastic, always there to help and is very positive and provides good feedback for your work. You get off weekends, plenty of holidays, PTO, good starting pay with bonuses after a year, great training program, lots of fun company activities and team meetings that allow for improvement in your job, list goes on.

    Cons

    You are on a phone all day, if you do not like being at a cubicle with a headset on then this job is not for you. There is a TON of information to learn, so much so that you have an entire online "encyclopedia" that is hard to learn how to navigate to find answers to clients questions along with a support team to assist you. Most clients are nice, patient and understanding but expect to encounter a decent amount of disrespectful, rude and outright furious clients that will have no problem yelling and cursing at you. If you don't have any interest in mutual funds or the market this would also be a con because you will be talking about it all day long.
