    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at American Express full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Big on personal development and "growth mindset". Everyone is friendly. Strong brand identity. Global outlook and the opportunity to interact with colleagues from US, UK, India, Japan, Singapore & more. Work-life balance is excellent and working arrangements highly flexible.

    Cons

    Opportunity to progress to a more senior role is limited outside the US due to cuts in non-US positions. My experience of moving internally did not come with a salary review (due to internal rules- no more than 10% rise), meaning I was underpaid.

    Pros

    Good pay, nice people although rarely under 35, great international relocation opportunities, very flexible remote work policy, strong company ethic.

    Cons

    Slow to promote, strict process stifles innovation, team build events are usually self funded, not enough strategic direction in emerging fields, directors/VPs typically ineffective, company ethic can often be exaggerated which is a little embarrassing.
