    I have been working at American Express full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart people
    Great brand
    Can earn big $'s in sales role
    Resources

    Cons

    Bureaucracy of a large organization
    Constant pressure on reaching numbers
    Slow to react to customer needs/requests
    Large goal increases and smaller territories makes it more difficult then in past to earn good money

    Advice to Management

    Need to make the process easier and quicker when trying to bring an account on board. It takes too much time to respond to a client request and we have to go thru the whole approval process again. Need more internal resources in some areas.
