    I have been working at American Express full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance
    Excellent location
    Strong benefits
    Interesting projects
    Powerful brand
    Great resume builder

    Cons

    It's big! The company constantly re-organizes, so it's possible to get lost in the shuffle or work on projects that are not an executive priority.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't change much. A few less re-orgs would be helpful for consistency.
