If you have a good manager it will make a massive different. Too many bad ones
Account Manager/Sales (Former Employee) – Brighton – 16 November 2016
This could be a great company to work for. It's reasonably well paid for Brighton and very good hours.
I started with a lovely manager, then got one who had it in for me. I was reported for everything - yawning, being in hospital sick, not "concentrating". My results were top of the team but they would never pass me on what they call "leadership" i.e the non tangible things that my manager kept picking on me for.
Due to this, it ended up being the most insecure, horrible job that made me ill with the stress. If I'd had a different manager, things could have been different
HBS Customer Care Representative (Former Employee) – Home Counties – 10 November 2016
If you are new they will give you the unsociable hours shifts with no flexibility. Not very easy to get in contact with a manager when needed ideal if you want to work from home but have no committments
Customer Care Professional (Former Employee) – Brighton – 7 November 2016
I have worked in AMEX twice, first time in Stockholm, Sweden and second time in Brighton, UK. I found both of my jobs in Amex quite simple but challenging at the same time. Both of my positions in Amex have been customer care level positions and the work tasks on that level are quite repetitive tasks. That's what makes the job simple and easy. Then the challenging part was to keep myself up to date of all the new updates that were released, for the programs I worked with, every month if not every week.
I worked in a small team which offered me a close relations with my work colleagues, and I enjoyed that a lot. Overall the atmosphere in the office was relaxed but professional at the same time.
Content Expert – UK / SPAIN (Current Employee) – Brighton – 3 November 2016
American Express me dio la primera oportunidad seria para comenzar con mi Carrera Profesional, aprendiendo y desarrollando importantes competencias.
Desde el primer día, hasta el día de hoy, siempre me han ayudado a desarrollar aquellas inquietudes profesionales y de aprendizaje que de forma proactiva manifesté, permitiéndome adquirir un conocimiento que considero muy importante de sumar y de seguir sumando.
Por otro lado, mi consideración sobre lo más difícil de mi trabajo, inicialmente fue trabajar en un idioma distinto al mio original y con una cultura de empresa distinta. Esto entiendo que ya quedó superado, siendo a día de hoy la mayor dificultad que se me plantea el hecho de no estar hubicado en España.
Como decía, lo que más me gusta de mi trabajo es su dinamismo, no hay un día igual al anterior. Esto, sumado a la gran accesibilidad de los directivos me permite sentirme como un trabajador valorado en la misma.
Valoro mucho el deseo por parte de la compañia y de la dirección de invertir siempre en la mejora y optimización, tanto de los procesos y herramientas como de la atención que nuestros clientes reciben directamente.
Siempre valoraré y recomendaré American Express como una de las compañías líderes en el servicio al cliente y de las mejores para adquirir aprendizaje y desarrollo laboral.
Empresa internacional, trabajadores de diferentes nacionalidades
Retail Assistant (Former Employee) – Brighton – 21 September 2016
A Typical day at work was fun and enjoyable, I learned how to achieve customer satisfaction. My co-workers were very friendly and helped me gain further acknowledgement within the retail industry. The hardest part of the job was being on queue duty as you had to stand up straight repeating the same thing for a few hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was working behind the tills with co-workers.
Friendly co-workers, Free lunches, 10 minutes away from my house.

EMEA Talent Acquisition Consultant (Former Employee) – London – 24 May 2016
Initially reeled in with lots of promised with non coming to fruition. Manager who would constantly snap at the team despite claiming we could always ask questions. Severe lack of support and empathy and lots of people being made redundant despite the business claiming it is growing. A lot of staff has been there for less than a year which says a lot about the company.
terrible management, unsupportive culture, pressured to work longer, no empathy.
