    I worked at American Express full-time (more than 5 years)


    Work/life balance - ability to work from home 2-3 days per week is a broadly applied policy across many departments (Blue Work). No issues leaving the office early for a doctor's appointment or other personal matter.
    Supportive culture - people care about you as an individual.
    Fairly collaborative and team-oriented. Although everyone has individual goals and they are not always aligned across teams, people are helpful.
    Fair compensation - especially considering work/life balance. Few people work late nights or weekends (definitely NOT mandated - more by choice).
    Mobility across functional areas and departments is possible and mostly supported.


    Corporate culture veers towards favoritism, with upward mobility being less tied to performance and more on executive sponsors willing to pull you up.
    Difficult business environment and challenges with company performance led to cutting of resources. These actions bring fear and are demotivating to employees. Goals and strategies are often scrapped, teams are often reorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ongoing layoffs are damaging to employee morale - would be better to handled in one action (i.e., annually).
    Career advancement no longer a clear 'track,' as experience and performance do not equal promotions. Corporate culture based on 'sponsors' favors leaders of a particular type, not necessarily your best thinkers and results drivers.
