    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at American Express full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mostly good people working for the company (band 35 and below)
    Decent pay
    Superior brand

    Cons

    Leaders (Band 40 and above) tend to be duplicitous, cruel and only concerned about a narrow scope of interest;
    Employee development is given lots of lip service and not many real results resulting in a company where advancement from the ranks is nearly impossible;
    Overly complex matrix organization structure that gets in the way of real innovation;
    For a Fortune 100 company they tend to be skinflints with regard to travel, expense reimbursement, etc.

    Advice to Management

    $40+ million dollar compensation package for the CEO and overly generous salaries for the top 15% of management are killing the company. Thousands of jobs could have been saved in 2013 were the compensation of the top few reduced by 10%. AMEX should be leading the way in terms of executive compensation rather than following the corrupt herd of Wall Street.
