    I have been working at American Express full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Comfortable work environment.
    Flexibility in terms of work life balance is heavily promoted although it depends on your manager.
    Structured performance review process.
    A lot of internal job postings happen on a lateral level. Comparatively few promotions.
    lot of opportunities for employees to upgrade their skills even at an interdepartmental level.
    Employees are hardworking and determined achievers

    Cons

    Salary structure is on the lower side compared to other companies of the same level.
    Technology is outdated compared to industry standards but the level of service and performance expected is extremely high.
    Most compensation related issues are brushed under the carpet by the HR and management
    Vast gap in the treatment of Operations and support functions.
    Company Loyalty is not considered as a trait as HR prefers hiring new inexperienced candidates from external sources at higher packages than promoting internal candidates due to which there is high attrition rate of experienced and potentially loyal employees.
    Office politics is not discouraged and inter departmental politics is high.

    Advice to Management

    Discourage inter departmental politics, Increase salary structure for support functions on par with industry standards and encourage Company loyalty. Be open to change in technology standards across all sites rather than purely looking at cost.
