Company Culture

A company dedicated to their employees and family like environmental culture

Support from management

I feel that I am always being supported whether it be, by my direct supervisor or management team or even support roles when they are not available due to other work demands.

Teamwork

very supportive and open with communication and resolving barriers of any kind,

Freedom to work independently

American Express believes in their employees to be the best and therefore to perform their best without the constant need to be micro-manged.

Internal Communication

always so transparent about business strategies and makes ever effort to stay open about on going communications

Gender Equality

American Express is true to the statement equal opportunity employer and never blurs lines or draws lines in terms of separating career opportunities based on sex, religion, gender, education, etc...

Attitude towards older colleagues

Absolutely 100

Career Development

American Express is always looking to hire, train, and promote from within 1st

Overall compensation for your work

My base rate is more than industry average and the potential to bonus and commission out makes my overall compensation for my current role far above other employers salary or wages paid for similar roles.

Office / Work Environment

American Express provides comfortable desks and sufficient enough personal cubicles and space to make your area your own, by adding each individual employees personal touches and effects. If for any reason an employee should need additional accommodations or ergonomic equipment adjustments, American Express will be more than happy to make the adjustments as needed.

Environmental Friendliness

Indeed recycling as well as company paid and encouraged volunteer programs are very present within American Express and highly advertised and encouraged

Work-Life Balance

American Express is definitely a company that puts their employees first and always willing to compromise and to be flexible to work with employees personal day to day life schedules

Company Image

i really am

Job Security

American Express is a company with job security that I couldn't imagine would be going away anytime soon or in the foreseeable future.

Handicapped Accessibility

yes for those needing handicap accessibility, there is nothing to worry American Express has got it taken care of throughout the work environment and American Express Property as a whole.

Workplace Safety

Yes American Express prides their selves on safe and accident free environments for all employees

Challenging Work

The work pushes me to be the best and to perform at my best, Without the constant challenge of this job, I do not think I would have it in me to carry on the way I do so en-joyfully.

Inclusive / Diverse

American Express values diversity in the workplace 100 percent

Suggestions for improvement

  • at this moment none that pop up in my head at first thought. Not applicable at this time.

What I like about the company

Overall since day one American has been a very encouraging and supportive company that is always helping and looking for new ways to help me build new skills and to get me to the top. American Express is definitely a company that I can see myself growing with over the long haul and not just in the meantime period. American Express is the type of employer that if you are lucky enough to get hired on with, you want to appreciate, respect, and never take for granted because they will take care of you the same way you could expect a family member to. American Express definitely roots their cultural beliefs and values into each and every employee that is welcomed into the American Express Family.

What I dislike about the company

Politics in the work environment especially a business professional work environment belong in the government hall not at American Express.

Company Culture

It was a somewhat cut throat environment and a very bias culture

Support from management

While I received excellent training, when it came to first day on the new job or position it was sink or swim little to no support in my branch

Teamwork

Company culture was to use specific acronyms and meaningless psychobabble type speech we were all trained in and we were encouraged to not address or discuss much with other employees.

Freedom to work independently

Employees were often left with no choice but to work independently due to support staff and supervisors being unavailable in endless meetings or trying to catch up on their own work

Internal Communication

Could have been better. Monthly goals seldom communicated at any of several levels in our large office by unrealistic job description and expectations

Gender Equality

In my specific office leadership roles were overwhelmingly filled by women.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I felt that the fact older employees sometimes needed a little extra time to learn new skills

Career Development

There was a lot of great training opportunities for anyone with initiative. I was in a months long intensive program providing invaluable training I could never have afforded on my own

Overall compensation for your work

Compared to other companies in the city it was excellent. Within the company compared to peers of the same qualifications it was often unfair by a large margin

Office / Work Environment

The temperature in the building didn't work properly, so half the floor could be uncomfortably cold while other areas were too warm. There was a constant struggle between employees about having the blinds open or closed. Some of us couldn't see our comp

Environmental Friendliness

Had attempted a paper recycling program but employees wouldn't follow directions so program was given up on.

Work-Life Balance

Anyone above entry level had zero care shown about work life balance as proved by work goals that literally nobody could consistently meet in a 40 hour week. I often worked 80 hours week and worked 7 days a week by working from home for 20+ hours as did

Company Image

I was.

Job Security

For all the time I worked there rumors the office would be closed circulated. I saw us go from 50 employees to 200 and back down to 75 There wasn't a day that I didn't worry our branch would be shut down.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes, there were sufficient resources, processes and considerations for disabled employees

Workplace Safety

Everything was up to legal code.

Challenging Work

The work load every supervisor carried was impossible to complete in 40 hours. Each position should have been split in half and being fulfilled by 2 people

Inclusive / Diverse

There were a few programs seemingly designed to encourage diverse ideas and opinions. However, those were in specific meetings and at specific times. For most employees it was only during the biannual company office meetings. We were then told specifica

Suggestions for improvement

  • Strive to become best in class when it comes to being employee positive. Build from there. How you treat your employees is how they'll treat the customer. Don't set values or expectations you won't be able to fulfill with honesty and integrity. Make y

What I like about the company

I learned a tremendous amount. About how big offices can be run and be run better. I learned business skills still sought after by employers years later. I learned how to be an assertive woman in the workplace without having to be aggressive or emulate m

What I dislike about the company

I think they started with the best intentions and fresh,new,employee positive ideas. I think that the people who look at their business solely from a numbers perspective like how much are we making,spending,profiting took over and took the money away fro
