I have been working at American Express full-time (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.

    I have been working at American Express full-time

    Pros

    Overall decent benefits though not the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Only high deductible health plans, but then that is across all employers now. Political atmosphere and your growth is dependent on who knows you and whom you know.

    Advice to Management

    Stop expecting celebrity like treatment and rewarding those that treat you like that. Instead you should focus on doing a good job running the company that justifies your salary.
