Featured Review

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at American Express full-time for more than a year

Pros

They have fantastic pay for the position you're in, and they teach you interesting and engaging utility of modern technology mixed with legacy fundamentals. I've learned quite a bit while AmEx while... getting paid more than fairly - I'd recommend a stretch here to whomever may be reading this!

Cons

The Company is huge, and at times it may take more than a little time to get recognized for your abilities and the growth you've had. There's a reason there is a "only way up is out" reputation... exists for some enterprise companies...

Advice to Management

Do 6-month evaluations with serious consideration for interior promotions before out-side-in hiring. Then hire only at the bottom level (entry). Let tech. decide when/who to promote for tech. because... business holds the wallet, but doesn't necessarily know what's best.

"Great company"25 Feb 2019

Former Employee - Sales Consultant

I worked at Essilor full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great company to work for. All expenses paid, including, mileage, hotel, airfare, food, office supplies, etc. Stock match, full benefits, 401K.

Cons

It's a $6 billion company. Upper management doesn't know you. That's expected, though, from a company that big.

Advice to Management

Memorize your National Sales Meeting training speeches. You all come off as very fake and unfeeling. Very robotic. You can't seem to move on until the teleprompter has moved you forward. Memorize... and improvise your training and you will come off as more personable. Sales consultants are expected to know our presentations inside and out and be able to improvise when necessary. You need to do the same thing with your training. You come off as boring and stiff. You need to own your material. Don't just read it. Own it. Make it yours.
