I have been working at American Express full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Flexible schedules for working from home or from the office, many opportunities for domestic & international travel based on your role and position, culture values internal movement between roles and business units.

Cons

As with any large organization, adherence to process is a double edged sword. Things can move slowly at Amex, but that is more due to a risk-averse nature than bureaucracy for bureaucracy's sake.

    I worked at American Express as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work culture, decent pay with good work life balance. People around you are very helpful and you get to learn a lot about the industry.

    Cons

    The hierarchy can get pretty rigid sometimes and with a big structure, getting something implemented can also get a bit frustrating. Besides, there is a danger of getting confined to a particular business area
