    I worked at American Express full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    policies, free cabs, brand name

    Cons

    One will end up doing vendor management.
    Amex Technology has nothing to do with technology, you will end up doing the clerical job for good money.
    Hell lot of meetings where you just keep on discussing goals of the company forever. Lots of talk but no actual work.
    Will never recommend this company to any techie person as you will end up in to mr. nobody since you will forget all ur technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do not hire techies , you just need some good managers who know how to get the work do ne.

    I have been working at American Express full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    People in the organization are very professional. Company offers the opportunity to change and try out different roles, which helps employees broaden their skills and experience.

    Cons

    Sr. management's aggressiveness dont match the aspirations. Payments industry is changing fast but Amex lags competition. Very risk averse company. None of the the bets it had made from acquisition standpoint seem to have worked. There is good bit of deadwood that shall be cleaned up to make organization more nimble and agile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While it is important to introduce fresh blood, management shall be equally focused on retaining and promoting high-performing tenured employees. Encourage employees to have an external focus.
