Flexibility, work life balance, open and supportive culture, innovative, and the people!Cons
Work is slow due to lots of process inefficiencies, doesn't pay as well as other banks, affected by big company policies e.g. hiring freezes and promotions freezes and re-orgs every yearAdvice to ManagementAdvice
Leaner and meaner, do more to retain the best talent and make it a meritocracy. Too many good people leave and less than talented people get lucky or incorrectly rewarded for their fluff people networking skillsRecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied through college or university – interviewed at American Express.Interview Details
Started at the career fair, Then had an on campus interview. This was half behavioral and half technical. After this you get moved onto a phone interview round. This round is also half behavioral and half technical, though the technical questions become more abstract. Overall, not too bad, the people that recruited me seemed to have freedom to move around in the company and to advance, so it seems that the company is structured nicely.Interview Questions
