      Brilliantly smart people who work hard and always have time for each other. Some great leaders who invest in their teams and help to balance the work/life of your role. AmEx is one of the best companies I have had the privilege to work in.


      I do not have anything negative to say buy had to write something in this box to submit my review.

        Great Benefits, Great opportunities for advancement, respected and trusted brand.


        High stress travel department, difficult system to achieve high bonuses for performance. Often difficult to achieve a good work life balance due to heavy demands of the department.

      I have an ‘interview’ with the SVP of Talent after a networking coffee chat I had with the SVP of Data/Insights. So he name dropped me, but when I asked the SVP of Talent about evolving needs, I didn’t get context about what they’re looking for. No jobs posted. How should I prepare for an in person ‘interview’ next week with the SVP? What should I expect? I don’t have as much info as I’d like to position myself well. Thus far, this is a connection-of-a-connection-of-a-connection thing.
