    Current Employee - Vice President in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Vice President in New York, NY

    I have been working at American Express full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Respectful work culture
    - Very good work/ life balance
    - Good leadership by and large
    - Good benefits
    - Reasonable hours of working
    - Decent pay
    - Does a decent job of weeding out obnoxious bosses, most of the time
    - Generous severance pay

    Cons

    - Some obnoxious bosses can still flourish, by sucking up to senior leadership and "playing the game"
    - Pay is not as good as competitors
    - If you are in Finance, the pyramid is narrower to climb up than in other functions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Dispense with the sometimes excessive focus on "employee engagement" - it gets wearing for all concerned, those in management and those not, all of whom have to go along with the charade.

    Pros

    Had one of the best managers, learned a lot about the business world as a high school student.

    Cons

    The internship was only six weeks long, I would have liked to have stayed longer.
