    I worked at American Express full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Get to work with very bright, well-educated people from various walks of life. There are always opportunities to learn and the company attempts to disseminate the most current approaches and practices to management throughout the organization.

    Cons

    It has become much more difficult over the years as a people leader to reward and / or recognize employees.

    Advice to Management

    As an entrepreneur, I would do everything possible to increase revenues and lower non-operating costs before I would ever lose a high performing, long tenured and loyal employee.
