IT Prgramme Delivery Director (Current Employee) – Burgess Hill, West Sussex – 8 August 2018
Amex an amazing place to work. There are always plenty of opportunities to develop and the people are amazing. You need to accept change as the norm and be accepting of the frequent organisation changes
A great corporation but too focused on the core products
Business Development Manager (Current Employee) – London – 4 July 2018
The company is fantastic and it's core products have served them well for so many years which is great to see and I'm sure they will for years to come but the business has some really innovative business units that struggles to get the focus needed to take it to the next level. The cross border payments/FX Sales business is a specialized unit that has performed tremendously over the years, the founding GM of the department, Paul Hargreaves, was fantastic at growing the business and keeping the teams engaged but alot of that has been lost since the integration within the wider business units.
Working for a brand that is so well known and respected is a joy
Always re-structuring the organisation which causes distraction, It's fairly difficult to move across business units as they tend to sway towards product experienced
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Brighton, East Sussex – 25 June 2018
this is a great first job, although the 0 hours aspect meant i didnt get a steady amount of work, with shifts being taken very quickly. i also worked on matchdays, which meant when the game was on, there was an hour and a half of unpaid work, waiting to go back for another hour or so. aside from this, the management was good and i gained a lot of experience.
Project Analyst (Current Employee) – Canary Wharf, Greater London – 30 May 2018
This review is for American Express Global Business Travel, not American Express.
Currently going through a lot of changes the workplace is fairly toxic with a lot of people very unhappy. That said based on the last employee feedback survey they have tried to address this to promote a better work environment. Staff are generally overstretched.
