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 Management

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?

    Pros

    Get to work with very bright, well-educated people from various walks of life. There are always opportunities to learn and the company attempts to disseminate the most current approaches and practices to management throughout the organization.

    Cons

    It has become much more difficult over the years as a people leader to reward and / or recognize employees.

    Advice to Management

    As an entrepreneur, I would do everything possible to increase revenues and lower non-operating costs before I would ever lose a high performing, long tenured and loyal employee.
