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

    Pros

    * After begging, our dept was allowed to work from home 1 day/week.
    * On-site health center was great.
    * Fair perks (good prices at on-site cafeteria), etc.

    Cons

    * Very political - management played favorites.
    * No bonuses if you were a Band 30 or below.
    * SOOO micromanaged! My colleagues and I had at least an undergrad (two had J.D's) and we had an ever-changing schedule everyday and were babysat. God forbid we have a dental emergency and had to leave work early, since we were call center.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps listen AND act when the lower level employees are concerned about the work environment?? Don't just nod your head and act empathatic - DO something!
