IT is run by an organized group actively pushing out legacy managersIT is being overrun by an obvious group of managers who refuse to collaborate with anyone outside their group. Processes suffer and the culture is mired in back-stabbing, mistrust. Managers who are outside this circle have a target on their back, there is a concerted effort to ruin them politically, and replace them with cronies of the 'insiders'. However, the insiders are extremely competitive amongst themselves, also do not collaborate and their teams only react to crisis. Management has created such a pervasive culture of mistrust and heavy handed/ top down rule - that individual employees are not empowered to collaborate or take initiative to solve problems. Everyone waits for a crisis, for management to swoop in and lead the firefighting.

Don't work at Amex Canada if you're ambitious Amex Canada is mostly mid-management (i.e. Manager/Sr Manager) with very limited upward movement. Most people stay at their level all their careers or 10-15 years minimum. Management love to promote the "linear" career model as it's the only one they offer. Not that I'm opposed but it does lead to churn. It also leads to disenfranchised among the ambitious. Tenure is very high (a positive sign) but I found this was actually a disadvantage that contributed to the lack of breadth in leadership. They don't understand the world outside their walls - just ask most people that work in business. Women are vigorously promoted and championed and depending on which team you're with, outnumber the men by a wide margin. Culturally a very competitive work environment and annual raises are discussed amongst the people-leaders with each having to out-compete others for raises. While the company believes this encourages collaboration - this is counterintuitive and results in the opposite happening. I tend to lead with a servant style and want to support others but this was frowned up by my management ..."you share too much" was a frequent refrain. I didn't choose to leave when I did but it was in the cards. If they weren't one of few companies that offered remote work I would have been gone long before.
