    Pros

    Great Brand /Company with decent benefits and pay

    Cons

    very policitcal. regardless of your tenure, you are only as good as your current years numbers. Successful sales roles earn higher targets and smaller territories and you could get pushed out.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the average tenure in your Commercial Card division and try to stop the revolving door.

    Pros

    Work life balance emphasized
    Friendly Colleagues
    Exposure to Senior Management is incomparable
    Great atmosphere
    Competitive Salary
    Very structured internship program
    Interns are treated like gold
    Fun events outside of the workplace

    Cons

    Standing out can be difficult
    Job tends to be very similar on a daily basis
    Projects for interns should be more challenging
    On certain days you can have a significant amount of free time

    Advice to Management

    AmEx Executives as a whole are really great people, they treat all employees from interns to senior vice presidents equally and that is something that you can't put a price on. While leadership tends to make themselves very available to interns they don't seem to make themselves available to full time employees; so my only suggestion would be to make more of an effort to interact with everyone. In terms of salary; in this industry I believe it could be slightly more competitive.
