  • Vacation & Paid Time Off  (130 comments)

    “After 10 years or reach a certain band level you get an extra week. Also all time off is flexible so you don't have to take holidays off if you...”

  • Health Insurance  (114 comments)

    “Worst is limitations on some coverage and high deductible ($1,600/person) but they do contributed $800 to your HSA.”

    6% 401k, salary is average for the industry, vacation is not great for new employees, health insurance options are very limited and only high deductible.

    AMEX offers a great benefit package. Insurance coverage and PTO starting day 1, work/life balance is important here and it shows based on the flexibility allowed for work schedules.

    Great PTO with option to purchase up to 5 more days. Flex hours in the summer when granted. Solid medical coverage. Great health program that supports the company. Awesome flexibility to work from home.
