Good company to work for.
Financial Analyst and Marketing Specialist (Former Employee), New Brighton, MNMay 2, 2015
Pros: Good opportunity for growth.
Cons: I didn't always see the right care for clients.
Overall this is a good, solid company. I worked within sales which ultimately was not a good fit for me. When I decided to leave the company offered me a unique position that was a better fit for my skill set which I really appreciated. Ultimately, the environment still was not a good match, so I left the company.

American Express is an outstanding compay.
Manager (Former Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FLApril 26, 2015
Pros: It was possible to advance with American Express.
Cons: Sometimes it was difficult to maintain a work/home balance.
I managed the day-to-day operations of a corporate travel office.

Clients called our office to place reservations for air, car, and hotel.

I was responsible for the ensuring that we provided extraordinary customer service and maintained all clients, which we did.

The hiring and developing of employees was crucial to meeting our objectives.

The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that we were doing exactly what our clients expected of us and that I had very satisfied employees.

IT Department Still needs a lot of work
Software Engineer (Current Employee), Fort LauderdaleApril 25, 2015
Pros: Work Life
Cons: Too many to list. Mainly incompetent management.
Massive transformation going on in IT, but still needs a lot of direction and focus. Much of the management is completely out of touch and only know how to direct traffic not really concerned about the direction of the platform they support. Risk averse in a big way to a ridiculous extent. Heavy into presentations and pretty presentations, very soft on results. Everything that is a failure is rebranded a splendid success. Too many holdouts for change and still much dependent on contractors. More than 90% of the IT in this building is taken up with young Indians straight off their last assignment somewhere else.

Excellent company with an abundant number of benefits
HR/Payroll Analyst (Former Employee), Miramar, FLApril 23, 2015
Pros: excellent benefits
Cons: poor management
Never a typical day at work; I learned not to trust people; poor management; great coworkers; hardest part of the job was having a supervisor who had no idea what my job entailed, and who did not support me; the most enjoyable part of the job was working for such a well respected company.

Amex was a growth opportunity in my career change from insurance to travel industry. I enjoy working with the cardmembers the most. I disagree about the management use of survey systems but I realize that is a part of the customer service world.

Very flexible and employee-oriented culture
Director (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 20, 2015
Great company for working parents. Lots of flexibility - work from home widely accepted; generous maternity leave policy; paid time off and sick days.

Corporate advancement is limited for most employees, in light of company's financial struggles and widespread favoritism. Little to no meritocracy - leadership promotes those who have 'advocates,' no longer tied to personal contributions or performance.
