Pros

American Express is a brand that people know and trust. American Express draws top talent to the organization and has plenty of opportunities to delevlop your skills and network.

Cons

Amercian Express can be a very political company. Without knowing the right personl or being plugged into the right connections it can be tough to climb the corporate ladder.
Some people say that American Express doesn't pay as well as other Financial Services Company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A year end salary bump that is at least equal to the price of inflation (cost of living) would be nice. Last year the cost of living increased by about 4.4% and my salary only increased by 1.86% despite my solid year-end review.

    Pros

    People are great, love having cafeteria onsite

    Cons

    Lack of training, too much busy work, delegation diarhea- FTEs found any and every conceivable way to delegate work responsibilities to someone else mainly contractors- Plausible deniability syndrome

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become leaders, stop the high school cliques and hold employees accountable, stop the jump through hoops for the sake of it
