      Great company, partially disconnected by COVID

      Pros

      Great benefits and work-life balance. Great company that appreciates you and will work with you on any personal life instances. Offers lots of PTO/Paid Sick... good opportunities to get promoted or move laterally. Lots of jobs in Phoenix.

      Cons

      Remote work is very disconnected. Haven't spoke to some teammates since March when offices closed down. Could do this job in my sleep it is so boring and repetitive. Sometimes feel like I am not a part of the organization at all since I could go 40 hours without contacting anyone internally and nobody would be reaching out to me. Doesn't make you feel like you are providing any value to the organization.

      Pros

      Not your typical financial institution, flexible hours should you need it, wfh flexibility before COVID, great benefits, and amazing commitment to making strong leaders. AMEX leaders are recognized across industries for being great leaders. Culture and values are strong and embraced.

      Cons

      Could be more agile and operate more like a tech company. Pay could be better
