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.

    I have been working at American Express full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great brand history, excellent track record of hiring the best of the best in terms of background / education / character

    Cons

    There are some teams -- Branding, New Business -- that get to spend money, travel all over, and never generate meaningful business results. It's very demoralizing but no one in senior leadership seems to care. As long as the idea is "cool", it seems that's what they gravitate towards, without regard to the Acquisition or retention benefits, the P&L, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Reign in the teams that are always talking about how much "fun and freedom" they have with their budgets, their roles, etc.
