I worked at American Express full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Amex take care of their own, and a very team driven. You're are made to feel part of something working there. Good basic salary and clearly defined working hours

Cons

Every single aspect of the role had to be checked with multiple stakeholders so it would take months to get simple things approved. Worst commission/bonus structure I have come across in 6 years in the business. The middle management team are completely unrealistic about their market position, competition and forecasts.

Advice to Management

I worked on the foreign exchange desk...when selling niche services employ candidates who have experience in that field....dont just hire telesale people who have not interest in delivering quality customer service.

    I worked at American Express full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, well-created perception of values and culture. Job stability depends on profit and margins, period. Strong focus on the company's history as well as the values that built on.

    Cons

    Top-down approach of management, everyone is conditioned to feel that their ideas matter but in reality, 95% of all employees are simply little cogs in the big wheel.
