Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at American Express full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Employee benefits - health, dental, RRSP, Stock options On site conveniences - convenience store, gym, masseuse Opportunities for advancements with courses (dependent on leader)

Cons

HR's inconsistent approach to reporting leaders and associated discrepancies Heavy focus on level within the organization with subsequent blocking of employees' advancement

Advice to Management

An employee's worth should be dependent on his / her successes and productivity and not based on a "band" level within the hierarchy.
