Culture…pretty relaxed culture but if you want to move up it’s a place where people go to take advantage of not doing much so a lot of people sit in roles forever. Pay is going to be below market and interviews probably mostly behavioral.

Are you in amex right now?

It’s a great culture but I agree with JPM on negative points. Depending on office location it can be very hard for you to move up. Some people I know have been moving laterally for 5+ yrs. Go into interview to find out what you’re going to learn in the role. Some roles are just meant to stagnate you. Depending on group you’re in, it can be on chopping block for layoffs, so it’s really important to know people from other groups. As to pay, I think it was in market but I know so many people who left for above market offers, including myself. If you’re starting a family, they offer 20 wks and other good benefit for adoption & IVF. Big complaint was the deductible for medical, very high. I went to another company where the premium and insurance exactly the same except much smaller deductible and more money to HSA.

Yes headquarters is best opportunity for growth.

I can confirm as I have a friend in a PM role at Amex right now and the pay is subpar to market average but the job is easy.
