Learning Services Specialist (Former Employee) – Brighton, East Sussex – 7 October 2018
I enjoyed working for American Express, I was there for just under 8 years.
In that time I was unfortunately made redundant twice due to restructuring of departments, the first time I secured a new new job the second time there was nothing suitable I felt so I took redundancy.
American Express is a very good company to work for they do look after their employees, good pensions and benefits.
Challenging, fun and superb professional friendship
Business Delivery Manager (Former Employee) – Brighton, East Sussex – 19 August 2017
There is never a dull day. I was particularly given the opportunity to lead challenging strategic projects with huge senior management expectations. These were great opportunities for optimal exposure to the difficult enterprise-wide issues facing the company and gaining superb personal development through the process.
I work remotely with American Express Open Forum. It's an online platform for small-to-medium enterprise business communication. I produce publications, infographics, illustrations. So far the experience was positive, I would always receive a clear brief and all the necessary assets. Communication is pretty streamlined too.
Kiosk Staff (Current Employee) – Brighton, East Sussex – 2 August 2017
My first job is in Amex. I learnt a lot here. Working with other people. Serving lots of customers under pressure. This has made me realize that working environment is very different from a uni environment.
Accounting Analyst (Former Employee) – Burgess Hill, West Sussex – 24 July 2017
A typical day for me was very structured with tight daily deadlines being within a finance environment. I have acquired a great deal of valuable experience over the years within the accounting, banking and business customer relationship area. You are encouraged to further your career path with on-line courses and to take advantage of mentoring. The workplace is generally a friendly one with flexibility towards work/life balance. American Express is a good company to work for.

great multi cultural and international environment
Team Leader - Customer Services (Former Employee) – Brighton, East Sussex – 26 June 2017
Great multi cultural and international environment that challenges and invites. High work pressure due to the market requirments. People are required to be flexible and self starting. Great development opportunities within a wide range of capabilities. Great secondary rewards like pension schemes, in-house gym, and good private insurance. A place that will certainly cut your teeth and if you want you can achieve a lot and you do get the space to achieve just that. As with all big multinationals, working in the most efficient and effective way is met with many challenges on lots of levels unfortunately. But this also makes the people very creative and hands-on.
great variety in cultures and people
too big a vehicle to drive effectively and succesfully for everyone involved
