Supervisor (Former Employee) – Los Altos, CA – June 8, 2012
American Express bought the company I worked for, and I was leary of a conservative financial corporation. What a delight it was to learn through experience that they are a diligent, and ethical employer. I found the company to be very morally based, and their conservative element proved to be a huge plus. When others gambled, and took huge risks, American Express remained steady, and dedicated. A true pleasure to work for.
the best service, and rates; plus free tickets to events in stadiums

American Express is a great place to work and the Sunrise campus is beautiful and the people are friendly. It is a large corporation and it can sometimes feel like getting ahead is hard because there is so much competition for roles.

great company to work for, very diverse. too bad job insecurity is so high. i was there 10+ years and was finally impacted by "reduction in force" aka - moving operations overseas. many different departments to work for.
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 17, 2017
Used to be a great place to work for many years, long tenured employees, not the case in the last 5 years due to reorg and layoffs, reduction in pay, not what you know but who you know forcing you to wear your keflar vest to work unfortunately. Very sad.
None to mention - sorry
Great managers no longer there driving the train since reorg
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 16, 2017
American Express strives on the diversity and culture of it's employees. They have a lot of amazing opportunities if you fit the mold. But it is not based on personal performance. There is an immense amount of favoritism and judgement. Not all management hindered advancement. This company made me question myself personally and professionally.
Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 15, 2017
I was lucky to work at American Express for over 13 years as an employee and as a contractor. I learned quite a bit and had the ability to use my skills. There were great opportunities for advancement.
Lots of red tape to contend with which can be frustrating to accomplish even simple tasks. Management is peer oriented so some nepotism going on here. Benefits are good with the exception of high deductible health insurance plan with HSA account.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Plantation, FL – October 12, 2017
I enjoyed my job at American Express. I felt respected and empowered to make value based decisions when doing my work and required little to no assistance with my job. I was able to interact with people on a daily basis and it felt like a family in my department. Our managing team was extremely professional and available to us at any time. American Express was generous in service awards, benefits, on site activities, community donations and allowed us to have a work/life balance. Unfortunately, my department was one of several that had a reduction in force and our work was sent to another American Express location off shore. There was no option to transfer, so I became a displaced employee after thirty years of service. I would have stayed at American Express until I retired, if my job stayed in the United States.
Benefits, Compensation, Enjoyable working atmosphere
