Vice President, Marketing (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 21, 2017
The environment has always been very collaborative and collegial with a strong focus on the brand as a differentiator. People are always open to having lunch or coffee to grow their internal network. As the business growth has slowed, the culture has changed a bit and employees are more sharp elbowed.

Amex is a very flexible company that cares about its employees. I had the privileged of growing continuously in the organization and in my experience, Amex offers very good opportunities of making a great professional career.
Good place to work.... but be smart about managing your career
Senior Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 13, 2017
Americans Express is a great place to work and build your career. They have a in most business units, a flexible work environment and great skill building opportunities l. However, employees need to have realistic expectations in terms of what their potential growth is in the company. This has not been the case for me and it has led to many disappointments. Also, some leaders may not be as direct with you on the true prospects of your career at American Express. Oh her than being clear and getting an understating of where you stand as an employee, it is a greatness place to work and build the foundations for your career.
Flexible work environment
Some mid level leaders are not as dynamic and forthcoming. Be prepared to manage your career
Great work place, very knowledgeable people. I feel proud to work here

American Express is a great company with a solid future. I've joined in Aug-2016. I've enjoyed my time here and the growth opportunities that they've provided. They understand the importance of personal and professional growth as well as the importance of work life balance.

I worked for Amex for five years it's an amazing company that values its employees and with great respect for their work life balance. Very good vacation policy plus additional five days off for five years of employment! Now they have introduced paid extended maternal leaves and paternal leaves for its employees.

Independent Consultant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 11, 2017
Enjoyed working at American Express. However, the company is very bureaucratic. Senior management asks employees to respond to changes in unreasonable times. Culture is very collaborative and people genuinely enjoy working here.
Senior Service Delivery Analyst (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 8, 2017
A good place to work. Team members work well together. I have learned a lot about SAS, Unix, and DevOps. The hardest part of the job is the long hours. The workplace culture is team collaboration is important.
Issue Manager - Global Commercial Payments (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 7, 2017
American Express constantly tries to remain on top by innovating its products. But, when the economy gets tough or the competition beats them to it, they drop all plans to fix what is wrong and cuts staff to minimize loss. Not a company for taking big risks.
Great work life balance.
Decision making takes too long with senior managment.
