Amex gives you great benefits. Technology employees get to choose what days they want as PTO. Holidays can be taken as PTO if you choose to, but you can also work holidays to save your PTO for the future.

The benefits are second to non. 6 months paid maternity leave 5 months for paternity leave vision, dental, health insurance from day 1. Almost 30 days paid vacation plus you can buy a week and you get an extra week at 5 years and 10 years. That much time off is unheard of.
