I have been working at American Express full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

It is a great company with good work life balance. The senior leadership is really nice. The benefits are decent and we get a lot of time off which is great. You can move around the planet which I have been able to do. Finally, you can have multiple careers in sales, marketing and finance if you so wish too which keeps things interesting.

Cons

It can be a little too NY centric in Senior Management which can limit careers for those living in other large cities. Also the benefits while OK could be better especially medical and dental. Also some of the more recent acquisitions have not been the best and we are dealing with those issues now.

    I worked at American Express full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good benefits, 401k, medical, dental. pay was good, but minimal raises which made it difficult to go up in the pay scale.

    Cons

    in call center arena, very difficult to get time off. very conservative with approving any additional time off once the date was fullfilled.
