    Pros

    AMEX has a great work life balance program if you take advantage of it. The people for the most part are very intelligent and help full. The New York office has a lovely campus close to the water and fine restaurants.

    They offer a great benefits package with on site doctors, Gym, Cafeteria etc.

    Cons

    The Blue Box culture can delay creativity and people who think out of the box. So of the leadership in place can use a new perspective on life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember what life was like before you became a Sr. Leader and try to treat new members of the organization with the same respect and passion you wanted when you started out.

    I have been working at American Express full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.
