Thriving in work and life
Our employees and their families feel supported at every stage of their lives through a wide range of programs and benefits including:
Serving our communities
At American Express, we believe that serving our communities is critical. We match donations to the nonprofit organizations our employees support, facilitate thousands of diverse volunteer opportunities and engage our people in ongoing environmental sustainability efforts.
Good insurance low cost
5 days off to just learn whatever you want or you could shadow someone to get the training 5 months of maternity leaves
Vacation time is good. 401k is average. Health benefits below average with higher than average cost. (4x the cost of my current employer). Maternity and Paternity may be seen as a benefit, but if you're not the one taking the leave, you're the one doing all the extra work to make up for the person that is gone 6 months. The company does not hire people to pick up the slack. That'll be on you.
Really comprehensive health care choices, so many to choose from!
401K plan participation can start after 6 months of employment. Quarterly dollar for dollar match of contributions at 6% with immediate vesting. Annual profit sharing contributions (0-3%) vests after 3 years of employment.
Great benefits and many work from home roles.
They match up to 6% on 401-k, stock options, dual benefits packages to choose from, can buy an additional week of vacation each year
vacation time was excellent, very difficult to take time off
The benefits package overall is at/below average compared to similar companies
The best thing is you get 4 weeks of vacation. The worst thing is workforce management will block you from using it unless it is Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. If 401k and health insurance are all you need to be happy, you will be. You can work from home, but I believe the stress and pressure is worse because of the constant monitoring of your screens, keystrokes, calls, emails etc.
