    I have been working at American Express

    Pros

    Pay is better than a lot of industries in Phoenix. Benefit package started first day and they are good benefits. Vacation time is more than adequate.

    Cons

    The job is very stressful. In order to be in the top percentage you need to walk over your coworkers. Management does not care about employees. We are belittled and downgraded. Incentives were just changed due to the "value" your department has to the company. Shifts are changed roughly every 4 months. They seem to spend their time finding reasons to write you up for "infractions". That way they don't have to pay incentives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some leadership training to management. You don't tell employees that they have no "value" to the company. This company needs to learn how to work as one. Champion/challenger leads to "lying, cheating and stealing".
