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).
I've worked here for 9 months after working at a consulting firm previously. There are SO many women here, it is almost overwhelming. My team is currently 80% women, and that is not uncommon. From what I hear, the parental leave policy is strong, and there is a big focus on work / life balance. However, the healthcare plans are truly sub-par and the environment can be very political-- more about who you know than about the quality of the work you do.
It is a great company, and one you can grow at. However, with the changing leadership and times, the roatating roles that were advertised are much harder to secure, though still prevalent. The culture is very supportive of bringing your "whole self" to work, but it is still hard to manage it all since it is still a large organization with forced curves, etc.
