I worked at American Express full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Recognize work/life balance and provide career development. There is a sense of teamwork among the operations people. American Express provides fantastic products,

Cons

Amex took TARP money and continues to ship jobs overseas to avoid paying U.S. taxes. Lack of partnership between the Marketing teams and Operations. Switched from regional leadership to International without thinking through cultural differences, language differences and time zone impacts.

Advice to Management

Get closer to the department Directors. Some are not qualified people leaders. Way too heavy at the VP level.

    I worked at American Express full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Amex has always been ahead of the game in the way they treated employees though some things have had to change due to financial issues. People tend to spend their entire career at the company.

    Cons

    There need to be more females as senior management. Louise Parent has been the only female on the senior management team for decades. She is great but there has to be more like her out there.
