I have been working at American Express full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Very strong people gravitate to American Express because of the brand and location. The company offers flexible working arrangements and has a number of strong leaders. Most employees move internally every 2-3 years providing employees with a great opportunity to learn and grow.

Cons

Salary and Benefits are below the industry average

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Work live balance outstanding!

    Cons

    Heavy into politics! Management trying to use Agile to complete projects without understanding Agile, while everyone else is doing Waterfall! VERY BIG INTO OUTSOURCING TO OVERSEAS! Very bad at understanding mobile development and User Experience.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing political games and listen to your employees. Outsourcing can work to a point, but stop treating it like a sweatshop. Replacing talent after every year.

    Pros

    Fairly flexible work-life balance and emphasis on employee culture and morale.

    Cons

    Difficult to gain exposure to senior management and leaders within the company, and everything is siloed, making it difficult to get work done across business units.
