Pros

Recognize work/life balance and provide career development. There is a sense of teamwork among the operations people. American Express provides fantastic products,

Cons

Amex took TARP money and continues to ship jobs overseas to avoid paying U.S. taxes. Lack of partnership between the Marketing teams and Operations. Switched from regional leadership to International without thinking through cultural differences, language differences and time zone impacts.

Advice to Management

Get closer to the department Directors. Some are not qualified people leaders. Way too heavy at the VP level.

    Pros

    Many opportunities to learn how you can best contribute to the company goals and improve your skillset. Urged employees to think outside the box. Promoted team building. Excellent benefits. Tuition reimbursement. Generally speaking this is the best company in which I have worked.

    Cons

    What you find in most companies and that is company politics. If you are good at networking then this may not be as much of an issue.
