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

    Pros

    Direct management value their employees and direct leaders genuinely desires to see your advance in your career.

    Cons

    Direct manager and leaders have no control with upper management decisions. Past few years, the bottom line matters most - improve shareholders profits. The company "Blue Box Values" DO NOT support loyalty to their American Employees!

    Advice to Management

    Leaders with the true control (Mr. Chenault), Shareholder are important; however, loyalty go both ways. Stop sending American Jobs overseas and keep American employees working. The results are top notch, high level of integrity and loyalty matched to none others. You continue to laid off good, hard long term employees that have been with the Amex family only to improve your bottom-line. The short-term results will only reveal itself in the long term with huge write-offs. But I guess, you need to show a loss in the books eventually.

    Pros

    Flexibility of balancing work and personal life, good for those that have families and prefer to be home more than normal

    Cons

    Outsourcing IT department, trying to apply for a different position in the company is complex, one never qualifies, until maybe after their tenth try. then might be out of pity. They ask one thing and expect another. Monotonous

    Advice to Management

    Be more into your employees, see who has potential to be where, make it easier to be considered for a new position. Hiring the wrong people to get the job done when the good ones are under your noses.
