Approves of CEO

I have been working at American Express full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great company with great people. Usually a great work-life balance and they are very invested in their employees.

Cons

Older technology with little innovation. Way too process-bound and risk-adverse.

Advice to Management

Loosen up! Processes need to help things, not get in the way.
