Great company with lots of opportunities for different positions

Professional (Multiple Positions) (Former Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

I worked at American Express full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThey have good benefits, comparable pay, many opportunities for training. It is a big company with opportunity to move into different positions, very good culture. Pockets a really good leadership.

ConsIt seems like they conduct layoffs every couple years. This causes alot of stress even if you don't get laid off.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing except try to manage the business well in the good times, so that you can avoid having to do layoffs when the economy is not as strong.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
