    I worked at American Express full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I had a number of great roles when I worked there - it's a well-repsected brand to have on your CV and I learnt a lot.

    Cons

    In recent years, the number of restructures have been significant, and it can be difficult to get things done across functional teams. Performance expectations are high but this is often not reflected in compensation or support.
