    Current Employee - Lead Technical Architect in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    I have been working at American Express full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Variety of jobs in Technologies if you can get it.

    Cons

    Amex loves the low cost off-shore model. They gain the experience on Amex platforms, then come and take the jobs. Would you rather higher someone that know the platforms, than someone who does not? I am sure more than 50% of Technologies employees are Indian.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher local people and keep the jobs in the US. Does the culture of 12 - 15 hour days really mean work life balance? Is it just the Indian culture that allows for that and Amex loves to exploit that?
