    I have been working at American Express full-time

    Pros

    The biggest pro is the culture and the people who work there. This is an amazing corporate environment for anyone who is looking to work somewhere where there is opportunity for growth and opportunities to engage in endless benefits and looking for a company that embraces diversity and has a sincere interest in their emloyees welfare. Certain positions offer great work/life balance opportunities, and being a global company there are always options to relocate.

    Cons

    The usual corporate red tape sometimes gets in the way. Senior leadership will sometimes be out of touch of the needs of their employees. The cons are not unique to this company...these are normal opportunities facing all major corporations.
