Pros

The work culture is very competitive and fast-paced which I found very challenging and enjoyable. I got to learn technical as well as financial concepts and processes and I enjoyed working at American Express.

Cons

Some processes are slow. Maybe if they improve them it will become a best place to work at.

Advice to Management

Speedup the processes and include some new techniques

    Pros

    Solid company. Continues to evolve in an ever changing mobile world. The company has a strong culture of putting the customer first. You can feel good about the work you do here.

    Cons

    Frequent restructuring of different divisions leads to displacement of employees. Several times in the last 3 years different groups have been displaced, sometimes affecting several hundred people.

    Pros

    Great culture, but like any other big corporation it has its corporate problems one being outsourcing.

    Cons

    - People at the same band level can have a wide discrepancy in salaries.
    - Different division seem to have different rules. Or have not adopted the standard policies.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your lower end band level employees.
    Stop outsourcing, your killing your own bread and butter.
