The work environment is very good. Co-workers are helpful. I joined the organization with good experience on the domain but no experience on the application. The coworkers assisted me a lot. But within 2 weeks I was able to deliver output on my own.

The management supports individuals to a great extent.


The most difficult part of the job was to learn new systems on you own because there is not much documentation available.

At Amex the work environment is exciting and challenging. Working with different cultures and different business aspects and stakeholders. Extensive learning and fast pact with multitasks orientation.
It is the best best place for career development

AMEX is a Global company operating as a franchise in the MENA region, however current management of the company suffers terribly with very inadequate compensation schemes and benefits, no career progress what so ever, the company is plagued by nepotism (wasta in this region) & is very staggered within
Main positive point in this Company is the people whom you work with which most are genuine good colleagues
Cons
Cheap benefits for an MNC

ive worked in amex in 3 departments for 8 years, the team leaders were very rude and the workload doesnt match the pay and low increments. rude that some restrict staff going to the toilet!!!!

All the ones that talked kindly didnt last 3 years and indeed you cant. all the old staff will tell you they take you meat and throw you bone, and those that received a package and early retirement couldnt be happy their torment was over


note that the managers receive 3500-4000BD monthly while staff 500BD and 3-4% annual increment and be prepared to read 200-300 emails a day or answer 75 calls per person per day
Pros
you learn life the hard way
Cons
rude team leaders. workload doesnt match pay and increments
