    Excellent vacation time, even for new employees.

    Former Senior Manager, Client Manager in New York, New York State

    Very generous packages, felt very happy with options. Excellent time off and a culture that encourages actually using your leave; always had excellent insurance options across the board.

    The benefits are decent for the banking industry and they offer maternity and paternity leave. They do however offer less sick time than I've had at any former employers, and you accrue four hours per month on your hire date. So if you were hired on the 15th, then every 15th you are given four hours. This is as ridiculous as it sounds, meaning you essentially can't be sick for a whole day without being put on some form of disciplinary action until you're 45 days into the year.

    I had an instance where I had a sick day but wound up needing to take a few days in a row, which overdrafted my sick time balance. After that, even though I still had several days left for the year, it was three months before I got back to zero hours, and another two before I could take a day.

    Health insurance deductible is a little high as well as prescription are not paid until that 2600.00 is met

    the worst thing about the benefits AMEX provides is if you do not utilize them. Benifits include everything from assistance instilling health eating lifestyles to fitness programs on site.

    Health Insurance use to be better

    The health insurance package I learned from friends at other companies was actually really good, as was the 401k package. There were some other nice perks like cell phone discounts and health club membership discounts although I didn't take advantage of those.

    Current Senior Manager in Tampa, Florida

    American Express offers a complete package of benefits that rivials some of the best in the world.

    Paid time off is above average.
