I worked at American Express full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Loved the company and culture. Leadership is held accountable for regular team meetings and one-to-one's. Benefits are good including profit sharing and company match on 401k.

Cons

Frequent restructuring and layoffs. Team leaders are not given enough training in leadership skills.

Advice to Management

Employee development plans should be taken more seriously by leaders so that when it becomes necessary to eliminate some positions to make room for others, there would be a ready pool of internal employees to promote instead of letting good workers go.
