Great name on your CV, difficult to grow

The company offers a lot of benefits (rewards etc).But they promise an environment to evolve fast and finally it is a lie.Customer care is stressfull and management is delending on the person. The higher in lvl you go, the less management cares about you (or at least they will make you think they care but reality is other).One example for phone orientated jobs : you cannot take hollidays as you wish due to necessity of people on the phone and they do not care about your situation.International environment, super fun. And Amex on CV is a must-have for later opportunities.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Stressful, management

Great Employer

The only corporation I have worked for that genuinely care for your progress. When they say you will get training you get training. Work/home balance is perfect. I have no regrets working for them.

Pros

Great training opportunities

Amex

Amex is an amazing company to work for, if you have the right team you will go far. I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive team/and company and have loved every minute of my time there.

Motiva al empleado y eso beneficia directamente al trabajo diario de cada empleado

La cultura laboral hace que todo el mundo , cualquiera que sea su nacionalidad , color o religión se siente agusto trabajando en equipo para conseguir los mismos objetivos . La motivación al empleado , es importante que una persona que ya no trabaja ahí siga hablando bien de la compañía....eso dice mucho. Aprendes mucho y te formas en muchas áreas en los que acabas siendo experto y vas adquiriendo un perfil con valor para uno mismo y para la empresa En momentos difíciles puedes sentirte respaldado por tus compañeros de equipo ya que se convierten en una familia y la competitividad existe , la búsqueda de ascender está latente pero un respeto que en otros lados no existe y con eso me quedo

Fun place to work but paymant could be better.

Learning curve is immense and you will have to adapt to the fast changing culture and regulations of the business. They also offer lots of activity outside the work environment and you can also get discounts at most shops through the company's webpage.

Fun workplace with negative points

The facilities are good and the company offers great benefits. However, advancement opportunities often depend too much on networking rather than individual skills and competencies.

great place to work

Good company, good benefits and great culture. depends on the departments you worked (all very different, sometimes it seems to work for a different company) you'll find fast paced or more relaxed, but all over the company the people is very collaborative and friendly. a few benefits: starting holidays 22 days + bank holidays sick pay medical insurance dentist virtual GP healthy mind support redundancy pay in case your role is eliminated (which can happened in this big company)

Strong brand and good company values

Good work life balance and training. Strong brand and good values. Excellent training opportunities. Like any large organisation, sometimes it can be slow to react and bureaucratic.
