Ripoff Report Verified™ REVIEW:

EDitor’s UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to American Management Services, Inc. for its commitment to excellence in customer service.

Ripoff Report’s discussions with American Management Services, Inc. have uncovered an ongoing commitment by the company to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any complaints or concerns. American Management listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

American Management Services, Inc’s CEO/founder George Cloutier, has informed us that his personal philosophy is that his clients and his employees are a precious resource. [continued below]....
..... As a successful businessman, Mr. Cloutier feels it is critical to listen to his clients and respond properly. By always putting his clients first, Mr. Cloutier hopes to maintain American Management Services as an industry leader, and a successful enterprise both now and for many years to come.

Another top executive of the company told us that Mr. Cloutier’s personal business philosophy is based on the premise that "strives to add value in its services as they understand that a successful business model is based on value-added services, and client care”. Mr. Cloutier takes the time to understand each individual client challenge and opportunity. Having founded American Management Services, Inc. over 27 years ago the foundation and bedrock of our organization has always been to recruit, hire and train exceptional staff members, to empower them properly and to always go the extra mile for our clients no matter what the circumstance. Some of the other things Rip-off Report learned in the course of its investigation: typical client feedback reads: “American Management Services helped us restructure our organization to improve communication and establish accountability as well. I would be glad to recommend your team to any prospective clients.” Another client recently wrote us “I now understand the benefit of having the structure in place to operate more efficiently and profitably. I am excited and motivated about the future of the company. Thank you very much for everything.”

The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Louis Mosca during an on-site inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases toward the American Management Services, Inc.

American Management Services is Ripoff Report Verified
Ripoff Report Verified™ .. part of Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program.A program that benefits the consumer, assures them of complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business..

The American Management Services, Inc. provides privately held companies, primarily family owned businesses, the tools and opportunities to grow. It also meets with business owners throughout the country to challenge their company’s needs, sales, profits, and ease of operations. American Management Services, Inc. buys leads for businesses. Additionally, The American Management Services, Inc. get referrals from clients, banks, and accounting firms.

According to Louis Mosca, vice president and COO, all leads are bought from Dun & Bradstreet. Mr. Mosca also stated “We deal only with business clients, not individual consumers. We are strictly a business-to-business company.” American Management Services has four groups that make up the company. Consisting of consulting, call center, outside sales, and survey which work hands on with the business clients. If a potential client indicates interest, the client will begin the necessary introduction process. For a nominal one-time fee, the company will then send a consultant to a potential client’s facility for five to ten days. Those days are spent in attempt to identify areas of opportunity to grow. To ease the mind of the client, Mr. Mosca states “All company consultants are employees, not contractors. Our consultants have 20-40 years of hands-on business experience.” American Management Services will also answer any questions the client may have.

American Management Services has been in business 27 years and has worked with 7500 clients. Mr Mosca states “Each year we add an additional 400-500 to the client base.” In those 27 years, there has been only two clients not satisfied with the service provided. For example, 5-6 weeks ago one of the dissatisfied clients based in New Jersey posted on Ripoff Report’s website. “When we met with the business owner in September/October 2013, the owner was personally, and business wise insolvent” says Mr. Mosca. The client could not pay bills, payroll, or debt services. American Management Services worked with him over the course of 6-7 months and was able to restructure his company. The client refinanced his debt and that saved him $45,000 per month in cash. This, in turn, saved the client $540.000 a year. American Management Services then increased the client’s liquidity by $1,000,000. The client wrote the company a formal reference letter that has been posted to American Management Services website for 2-3 months. Subsequent to giving the reference letter, this same client posted “This insanity on Ripoff Report attacking me personally and our company’s results” states Mr. Mosca. Mr. Mosca has spoken to him since the client posted on Ripoff Report. Mr Mosca has also skyped with the client when the consultant was there, client’s location, on American Managements dime. Since then, the client admitted to over reacting. The client also stated, “I am very happy.” American Management Services has given the aforementioned client extra time for both parties to resolve any open items the client thinks are real.

American Management Services has one hundred employees with no turnover. The employees have been completely loyal to the company. The Senior Management Team, combined, has one hundred years of business service. There are numerous staff members with MBA’s or are CPA’s. One of the consultants “Is a Harvard graduate with a MBA and has spent his entire career helping small businesses survive and prosper. We also have one thousand client references that think we walk on water”, states Mr. Mosca.

American Management Services, Inc. Customer Care & Complaint Resolution

After an issue is was resolved, Mr. Mosca followed up by making the customary telephone call and flew to see the client face to face. Those steps were taken to ensure the clients issue is resolved and that they are satisfied with the resolution.

Mr. Mosca says that as a result of the complaints, the American Management Services, Inc. has implemented changes to help increase the quality of its customers’ experience. Mr. Mosca said, “I think from a business perspective, we will do what is necessary to have civilized conversation” resulting in meeting the clients full expectations and needs. American Management Services also increased their clarification and communication practices. Additionally, go in depth with the client in their client contracts.

Mr. Mosca and his team recognize the value of working with Ripoff Report and the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, and the platform it provides for businesses and clients to interact and resolve issues. He stated that “To be a part of these two programs is a badge of courage.” Ultimately wanting to bring back confidence to the company.

Ownership and senior executives are truly concerned about our contribution to the company and providing growth opportunities for us. Executive management of American Management Services take the time to listen and communicate with employees and clients….what could be more important Mr Cloutier asks all the time?”

Ripoff Report was pleased to learn that American Management’s past and current approach to business is focused on its pledge to total commitment towards client and employee satisfaction.



Turnaround management is a process dedicated to corporate renewal and correction. We use analysis and planning to save troubled companies and return them to solvency. Turnaround Management involves management review. Once analysis is completed, a long term strategic plan and restructuring plan are created. These plans may or may not involve a bankruptcy filing. Once approved our turnaround professionals begin to implement the plan, continually reviewing its progress and making changes to the plan as needed to ensure the company returns to solvency.

Employee Testimonials



American Management Services- Orlando http://www.amserv.com/ Failed to act as a responsible employer! Orlando, Florida


Not sure who wrote this or how to respond….our business is very challenging and not for everyone. Our 100+ employees that currently work with and for us embrace our culture and the great things we attempt to accomplish each day. Also, Ripoff Report emailed this customer so the member business could make things right with them. They never responded to Ripoff Reports request to help them. When a business joins the Corporate Advocacy Program, Ripoff Report emails everyone from the past so the member business can make things right with them. Of course, everything within reason.  


This was the worst employment experience.  

The Company abuses its employees via verbal and unrealistic time demands.  In addition I was unable to get my travel reimbursement @ .20 per mile as promised .  The training was completely inadequate and bumbling at best. You must completely memorize a 6 page spiel of crap BEFORE you even start!  6 pages called THE INSTITUTIONAL  They make up their own jargon which no client or new hire would understand.  CONSUMERS BE AWARE they bill at almost $500 per hour!   

The trainer was completely rediculous and incompetent.  A washed up ANALYST. With all their technology they had us view training videos on a 15" laptop in the managers hotel room.  They couldnt figure how to hook it up during the day at their corporate headquarters. DON'T WAIST YOUR TIME OR MONEY-

In training, the mysterious Sr VP ( Chris) [who graced us with his presence] likes to throw out his profanity to intimidate the new and current employees... they even admit their weakest link is training.  If they cant do that right...how can they fix your business...they cant fix theirs!

The HR Manager SEAN  IS A GREAT GUY floating IN A SEA OF SHARKS!  I forgot they bought us pizza and would not pay for our meals!!  Only the food the hotel had and the pittance of cold subs or pizza for lunch.

#1 UPDATE Employee

the goal of AMS is to help the client



I strongly disagree with the comments you have made about AMS.

Yes, like any other company AMS has internal issues and problems, but overall it is a good company. The main goal of AMS is to help its struggling clients. We may disagree with the philosophy and strategy of AMS, but regardless of our opinion the company has managed to be successful ,and provided assistance to thousands of then struggling and now happy clients. The testimonials are offered to support my claim on their website. And if someone is personally unhappy with the AMS, it should not become his or her primary agenda to provide negative and destructive feedback to services the company offers. I personally disagree with the management style of Chris Mosca ,  but it has nothing to do with company’s aim to help small and mid-sized struggling businesses. AMS provides value to its clients, and it is totally up to the business owner to make the decision pertaining AMS's engagement. The company makes it clear in the beginning of the process that the client can choose to fix problems on their own or to ask for help.

P.S. My name is Savely Barkan and I had resigned from the company today.No one can accuse me of writing this letter while working for AMS in order to be promoted or being paid for.

What a Laughable Company Response!

AUTHOR: Lee33919 - ()

 I almost laughed out loud when I read the AMS response.

First of all, it's interesting to see that former AMS Sales Boss (and I believe that he was also a VP), Gary Antonino has now been released from federal prison after his 87 month sentence for bank fraud and money laundering, etc.  This was the person that personally handled my "training", by the way.

Let me summarize the "AMS Experience" ... I was sent on appointments that were based on the AMS phone room staff's misrepresentations, the vast majority of my assigned "potential clients" had expected someone else altogether to show up and they were led to believe that i was a representative of the US Council (Conference?) of Mayors (I may have the name partially incorrect but the entities wer real, we weren't!) ... One appointment consisting of a round trip of roughly 300 miles resulted in my getting booted out of an office altogether!, and by the way, at that time, your gas expenses were reimbursed (after you chased the money down and then waited on it) at the rate of $.20 a mile after some point was reached. 

Their promises weren't kept, my sales manager made numerous appointments to meet me at potential client offices and stood me up on every single one and the Company was simply ridiculous to work with.  I believe that one person from my "class" made it past three months.

So Lou, give it a rest, perhaps you've reached the dangerous point where you've begun to believe the spiel by now, the facts (and my pages of faxed / emailed appointment notes from your phone room floor) pretty well refute that across the board.

#3 UPDATE EX-employee responds

He doesn't take acountability for his failure

AUTHOR: BruceH - (United States of America)

I am the "washed up ANALYST" The gentleman speaks of. I was an Analyst for 6 years before retiring this year. I trained groups of candidates in the processes and procedures the company uses for the Analyst role.  These candidates are in training for a job that, if they become proficient in these processes and procedures, can earn from the low to mid six figures. It is a hard an exacting job. The recruiter tells these candidates this from the start including that they must know a ten minute speech verbatim before the classes start. They are told that if they can't do this then they would not graduate from the class. This gentleman came to class without knowing the first paragraph of his speech. He also thought it was OK to paraphrase the speech feeling that once he was in the field he would be able to pick and choose which processes and procedures he wanted. This would be disrespectful to our clients and company. I tried to coach him in this and worked with him extra so he could catch up with the group.

As with most training classes he had home work to do each night. Because he was behind in learning his speech he couldn't do the homework. He quickly fell behind and the whole class itself started to get behind. To help I worked with the class on my free time. This gentleman was more interested in having his wiskey than work on his homework and studying in the evening. He was lazy and could not handle the work. He quit without comment after 4 days of training. He wants to blame others for his failure. Part of my training is teaching them to be accountable for their actions.
 He didn't learn this either.
