Good company to work for..

Senior Programmer Analyst (Current Employee)
Burgess Hill, England (UK)

I have been working at American Express full-time for more than 3 years

Pros- Career opportunities world-wide
- At least trying to meet the average salary in the market
- Many employees staying 5-30 years with the company
- Trying to provide "work-life-balance" environment for the employees
- For a company with over 150 years of history, tens of thousand employees globally, executives and senior leadership try to keep the company young in terms of culture, etc.

Cons- Few opportunities beyond director level
- In-fighting and politics, as much as expected for a large, global company
- Salary and benefits are not very competitive while meeting the market average

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

It's a wonderful life

Technical Architect (Current Employee)
Burgess Hill, England (UK)

I have been working at American Express

ProsThe people are great, at all levels. If you have a good idea then it will get picked up and used (or at least thought about). The hierarchical nature of the company is mainly around the structure for reporting. If you need to gain approval of a senior member of staff, or just want a chat, then they tend to have open doors.

ConsIt's a big company, so there can be quite a bit of bureaucracy. We are global, so there can be a lot of work outside of "normal" hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis is a difficult time for the company, and I think Senior Management are doing a good job in letting us know what is going on.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
