    I worked at American Express

    Pros

    Strong base salary and car allowances paid Commission structure is satisfactory Amex offer discounted health insurance and card products Great people to work with Leverage warm leads and work strategically on new business through the many Amex business units Strong brand behind you

    Cons

    Limited work life balance at times, perception is if your not in he office your not working Many challenges with their processes and paperwork, need to bring in new systems/technology to change and improve You need to become "blue box" to make it in the company. You need to know the right people to progress your career. They don't recognise or value their committed and hard working employees so limited progression if you don't play the political game and stroke egos If you don't perform you will be on a performance management plan straight away

    Former Employee - Corporate Recruiter in Gurgaon, Haryana

    I worked at American Express full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lot of training for your career development and opportunity to grow and move within teams. Exposure to directly interacting with Senior Management as a recruiter. Good place to start for a junior recruiter as you get to learn a lot.

    Cons

    Very hectic and demanding work environment in the recruitment team as it is on payrolls of Allegis Group. If you want Work-life balance then this company is not for you.
