    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - genuinely good people are your coworkers
    - cares strongly for the end customer
    - deep respect for personal life situations (e.g., children, sexual orientation, etc)
    - great nyc benefits (e.g., Tribeca Film Festival employee promotions, free admission to major museums, etc)
    - fairly good health center
    - large company -- if you look for a specific role, it probably exists somewhere

    Cons

    - compensation for stellar employees is lacking, producing a culture of employees with mediocre levels of ambition
    - hard to "get rid of lemons", so you'll likely end up working with some bad apple(s) that you can't avoid
    - very director- and vp-driven office/team norms where you could find yourself working for a leader who is very pro or very against working virtually or a leader who is very into facetime or not which vastly changes your expected hours in the office

    Advice to Management

    - promoting from within should render comparable compensation to hiring externally; this will result in appropriately rewarding and motivating existing employees to put forth their best work.
