Best company I've worked for

Specialized Corporate Travel Counselor, Onsite Account (Current Employee)
Bellevue, WA

ProsSince 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.

ConsNot 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.

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