I have been working at American Express full-time (more than 8 years)

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

    Pros

    It is a great company with good work life balance. The senior leadership is really nice. The benefits are decent and we get a lot of time off which is great. You can move around the planet which I have been able to do. Finally, you can have multiple careers in sales, marketing and finance if you so wish too which keeps things interesting.

    Cons

    It can be a little too NY centric in Senior Management which can limit careers for those living in other large cities. Also the benefits while OK could be better especially medical and dental. Also some of the more recent acquisitions have not been the best and we are dealing with those issues now.
