Better than most other companies. Women are still not equal to men here.

Amex has a positive, relationship-based culture and recently announced a great new parental leave policy. My one (gender-related) complaint is that there are not as many women in senior positions as there should be given that at lower levels some departments are dominated by women.

Great place for years 4-7 of a career. Mid-career growth will be limited.

Great place to be mom of young children. Lots of expected and granted flexibility. But long term career growth is limited, or shallow--more lateral than up.
Today, a lot of the leadership is ossified and too narrowly experienced just within American Express. A lot of common leadership practices are no longer considered best practice and the company is slow to learn from external sources.

In marketing, there are overwhelmingly more women than there are men at the entry to mid-senior levels. Amex in general is known for its flexibility and friendly work culture. Compared to other traditional financial services, there are also more female senior leaders (GM, SVPs). However, I would like to see more women at the very top echelon of the company (C-level and Board Members).
