    I have been working at American Express full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    AmEx has always treated me well as an employee. My spouse had serious health problems some years ago, and my leaders were very compassionate, and allowed me to work from home full time until she recovered. Good pay, good benefits, good people to work with for the most part.

    Cons

    High emphasis on security makes it more difficult to push for innovation, adopting new software, etc.

    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...
