I have been working at American Express full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Since joining American Express in 2006, I've felt like a valued asset to the company. There is a strong emphasis on work/life balance, career growth and development, customer service, and shareholder values, and I feel my voice is heard. Growth within the company is encouraged.

Cons

Not a lot of sick-time accrual, and the healthin insurance deductible is quite high for me ($1200 as a single person) before insurance will kick in.

    Pros

    Focus on work life balance, smart and motivated people who are easy to work with. Culture interested in employee and career development. Great location which just keeps getting better.

    Cons

    Pay and bonus not as high as competitors. Some employee interaction more passive than necessary delaying progress. As you progress, politics impact rating more than work output.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay and bonus to ensure top talent stays with company.
