Pros: talented co-workers, salaries, work life balance
Cons: seeing talented people laid off, high cost of health care, and management that thinks they are above all others below them.
I worked 20+ years at American Express and loved my job accept the last few years as it is now all about surviving lay offs over and over again. Finally, I was laid off but did get a great severance package. Management is now about doing whatever they can to save their own job and may throw you under the bus if necessary. The hardest part of the job – more... is senior level management believing they are above anyone else and the increasingly super high cost of benefits. The salaries are great but check out the cost of benefits that can take a bite out of your salary. Again, for the most part I loved my tenure at American Express and if offered the right position reporting to a good manager I would love to go back as the people you work with are amazing. – less
