Pros

Lots of opportunities to grow your career. Lots of flexibility to find the right role for your long term objectives. Promotions are merit based. Work life balance is exceptional. Core credit card business is exceptionally well run.

Cons

Huge corporate bureaucracy and meeting based culture means getting things done is challenging. Pay is below competition and longevity at American Express means your pay will fall significantly below your peers, thus poaching from top banks is rampant
