Challenging yet rewarding work environment
Manager of Business Development (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZMarch 1, 2014
Pros: great compensation, benefits and work-life balance
Cons: 84 mile daily work commute
A typical day at work is spent coaching sales, building vertical sales strategies, training and meeting one-to-one with employees regularly to review results, manage performance and provide career development.

What I've learned is about American Express is their Blue Box Values which encompass treating people with respect, building winning strategies, – more... driving innovation and change, driving results and acting with integrity and personal excellence every day.

The management philosophy at American is built on transparency of communications and respect for the individual.

The leaders I work with meet regularly to collaborate on department strategies.

The hardest part of my job is to manage not only sales strategies and business goals but also handle the administrative duties associated with 10 direct reports like mid-year reviews, employee development plans and end of year reviews.

The most enjoyable part of my job is spending time connecting with my team, showing interest in them, helping them plan and execute on career goals and providing a motivational environment in which to excel. – less

Account Manager (Former Employee), São Paulo, SPFebruary 24, 2014
Pros: multinacional com benefícios amplos
Cons: hoje no brasil existem poucos funcionários diretos, pois a amex brasil é representada pela flytour.
Como consultores de soluções de meios de pagamentos e viagens corporativas a AMEX me demonstrou quão importante era um gerenciamento sobre a 3ª ou as vezes 2ª maior despesa controlável nas corporações. Unindo o serviço de gerenciamento de viagens com controle de uma boa política de viagens + os meios de pagamentos podemos sim ter esta modalidade controlada – more... e gerenciada nas empresas.
A troca de experiência com os amigos de finanças da AMEX e eu do meu lado com a parte de viagens como bagagem me permitiu um conhecimento mais amplo.
A parte difícil éramos fazer a venda total dos serviços, já que naquela época as corporações não enxergavam viagens e os meios de pagamentos como um processo a ser tratado em conjunto. Viagens costumava ficar com RH e meios de pagamentos com finanças.
Apesar desta dificuldade a parte mais emocionante e desafiadora éramos convencer os dois setores para uma apresentação que juntávamos viagens com meios de pagamentos e assim conseguíamos passar nossa mensagem de gerenciamento amplo. – less

Sr Manager - Marketing (Current Employee), New York, NYFebruary 24, 2014
Pros: work/life balance - can work from home multiple days per week
Cons: compensation is low compared to industry, can be difficult to advance in career
The company is a marketing powerhouse, with lots of innovation for its size.

Management is working to change, but there are a lot of layers to the org structure, which can be frustrating.

Great people & work life balance. At times roles can become a bit mundane and it can be hard to try a new role within the company in a different business unit. Career growth is definitely encouraged by management
