Featured Review

Former Employee - Senior Analyst, Data Science

I worked at American Express full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Best company to work for if you want work-life balance

Cons

Nothing comes to mind as such. Would recommend people to not consider this place to begin your career with because this is a company to settle down in and work for years and retire from. So if you... are looking for financial growth by switching companies, keep Amex as one of the last companies you target before settling down.
