    Great culture of people, everyone is seemingly "normal", supportive, smart, fun Broad exposure to a variety of roles and skillsets which is super helpful for the long run.

    Cons

    Intense - deadlines to accomplish with often little support. Pay doesnt always add up to the responsibility and hours worked.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at American Express full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Role has high visibility within the business unit. Working hours aren’t stretched out (most of my days involve 8-9 hours of work). People are collaborative. The company policies at the Executive Committee level are very pro-employee

    Cons

    The experience of working here is very much tied to one’s specific manager as most of the benefits, flexibility etc that the company offers are subject to managerial discretion.
