Pros

Great work-life balance
Excellent location
Strong benefits
Interesting projects
Powerful brand
Great resume builder

Cons

It's big! The company constantly re-organizes, so it's possible to get lost in the shuffle or work on projects that are not an executive priority.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I wouldn't change much. A few less re-orgs would be helpful for consistency.

    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

    The culture and values at Amex is outstanding. They strive to develop their leaders, which shows in the workplace. Voted best place to work and they deserve it. They expect excellence and reward it. When you work with Amex you feel like part of a family.

    Cons

    They reorganize quite a lot, which puts employees, even the good ones, in risk of being downsized.
