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

Pros

Flexible schedules for working from home or from the office, many opportunities for domestic & international travel based on your role and position, culture values internal movement between roles and business units.

Cons

As with any large organization, adherence to process is a double edged sword. Things can move slowly at Amex, but that is more due to a risk-averse nature than bureaucracy for bureaucracy's sake.
