I worked at American Express

Pros

Benefits are good, it carries a strong name.

Cons

Management incompetent for the most part. No communication, changing expectations, very political.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop treating your people like commodities. Everyone knows you move people around "re-engineer" to make the bottom line. The reality is that Amex has experienced no natural organic growth in years.

    I have been working at American Express

    Pros

    American Express has a history of great culture and great benefits and great treatment of workers.

    Cons

    I think our leadership, in this high jobless rate economy, is taking it's people for granted and treating them with less and less respect. They are forgetting that the lower level employees (even middle managers) are the ones that deliver the results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please remember that the bottom line is not always the most important thing, particularly for the long term success of a company. You are treating employees (even very good high performing employees) as costs instead of assets and this will not bode well for long term success.
