Pros

Amex respects and encourages a work life balance; there are numerous flexible work arrangements. The company also encourages internal movement to broaden skills sets and support employee development. Compensation is good when factoring in annual bonuses, which are contingent on business and employee performance. The company is large and diverse enough to provide a life long career of opportunities.

Cons

Like most companies, the culture is dependent on the specific department. At times it can be exteremely competitive and stressful. The annual performance review process needs to be revised. It is too subjective and political.

Advice to Management

In the past, decisions were too short-term, resulting in drastic lay-offs and other cost cutting measures. The company should be more focused on long-term growth. The annual performance review process needs to be revised. It is too subjective and political.

    Pros

    Good entry for the resume.

    Cons

    AMEX was a very good company years ago...the golden years were the 1980's. After 9/11 the company never quite recovered and the gloves came off way before the current financial crisis. While never competent at basic processes like human resource management and information technology, AMEX did very well through creative marketing and talented people. Now, it's just another lame duck bank which doesnt even pretend any more to be at the forefront of current management trends. Unfortunately, AMEX has run out of ideas and is quickly running out of talent. The only long term plan is short term survival....while AMEX will be around for a long time, it's a pale shadow of the exciting and dynamic company it once was.

    Advice to Management

    good luck

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    I think that overall working at American Express has given me the knowledge of how Credit Card companies work, and the basic functions of banks. This knowledge is something that I'll be able to carry with me for the rest of my life.

    Cons

    At times it seems like opinions are not heard, Many times my functions deal with how the card member responds to marketing solicitations. When are mail piece has misinformation about the card product then the job can become more difficult.
