    I worked at American Express full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Love working with my peers, Team leader very supportive and many opportunities for Advancement

    Cons

    Some leaders need to treat ALL employee's equal. Still to much favoratism and unfortunately hard work doesn't always help you move forward, too many politics. New hires come with no Tenure come in with a higher pay over employees currently working and prooving themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Make realistic metrics. Surveys should not be used against you if it was do to another CCP or technical issue.

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

    Pros

    It has been a great company to work for
    great work life balance

    Cons

    too many rif's (reduction in force) and reorgs
    leadership hire / fire and review you based on perception, not what you can do.

    Advice to Management

    stop outsourcing so much.
    management lays off people when they turn 60.
    management will lay you off too if they don't like you, even if you are brilliant.
    stop buying the kiss ass crap when people brown nose you or want to give presentations. That does not make them good, just because they are able to talk in front of a lot of people.
