    Current Employee - Product in Markham, ON
    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at American Express full-time

    Pros

    - AMEX as a brand looks great - Looking at other departments (not on the corporate side) looks like they have great learning opportunities, and interesting projects to work on - Work/life balance is great - you spend most of your time WFH - Onsite cafetria has good food

    Cons

    This review is specifically for GCP Canada on the Product team - There is absolutely no growth opportunities in this area. The product team isn't "real" product like at other companies -- its more product MARKETING and a lot of administrative work involved. - The leadership on the team was not motivating, they were demeaning, and do not look to encourage employees in what they would like to learn. The folks on this team that caused the biggest headaches have now switched departments and/or left, however the management focused more on "looking good" to senior level management (i.e. EVP, VP, level) during fancy dinners and lunches.. vs being innovative and creating new solutions. - No sense of teamwork, and mostly a lot of backtalking
