I worked at American Express full-time (More than a year)

Pros

People are the top asset of the company. Great career development. Tangible review process to help with your development (if you take is seriously). Lots of opportunity for movement. Can get involved in networks/clubs outside of your job to expand your perspective or skills. Many opportunity to learn about different areas of the business.

Cons

Hard to get promoted ahead of "HR guided schedule" at the junior levels. Inconsistencies across different organizations. Slow/Frustrating technology.

    I worked at American Express full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    For a large corporation, Amex has a great culture. There is a high caliber of talented employees who are motivated to drive innovation.

    Cons

    The company has its fair share of politics. Upward movement is challenging unless you get someone to advocate you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on digital innovation and ensuring best in class customer service. Don't try to attract all customer segments. The core is still the affluent base, which is what Amex does best.
