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.

Former Employee - Discover Host

I worked at Grand Canyon University part-time for more than a year

Pros

A blast hanging out with prospective students. Your Job is literally just to show them a good time. Awesome co-workers.

Cons

You will spend multiple shifts making the kids beds.

Advice to Management

Outsource bed reset.
