I have been working at American Express full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Genuinely empowered to try new things, to find your own path and speak your mind.

Cons

As a big organisation, consensus on decision-making can be frustrating. But once a decision is made, this momentum can move the organisation very fast.

Advice to Management

Communication is the perennial challenge. Great efforts being made, but the need for clarity of direction and leadership will always be there.

    I worked at American Express full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Allows for career advancement and provides ample opportunities, combined with work/life balance.

    Cons

    Can be a little political when strategic decisions need to be made. Sometimes, out of box solutions are not at all received well. I guess this is normal for this industry.

    Advice to Management

    Exit conversations can be explored to be a little more structured. Honest feedback will be the most useful here.
