I worked at American Express

Pros

Proud to be working for AMERICAN EXPRESS, good perks, many different departments/divisions you can work for, excellent appreciation for work/life balance, great leaders/execs who are accessible and easy to talk to.

Cons

For admins: minimal chance of promotion without an ivy league mba, the workload is ridiculous, the amount of work you do for the compensation you receive makes you think twice about your future there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Appreciate your admins, either increase their compensation package or lighten their load.
