1. In my opinion Amex is a very woman friendly company.
2. Pros and Cons would depend on the kind of work she would be doing in case she joins.
Important factors would be :
a) the process - inbound outbound calling or back office work. If its back office or an individual role its better.
b)the shift timing- usually the 7.5 hours is what you are expected to work in a day. But thing to consider would be if its US,UK, Australian or a regular shift. Australian and regular shift are better for a working mum.
c)Transport- are they providing transport facility. Although Amex is not remotely located and there is easy access due to rapid metro, its easier if you get picked and dropped. Daily commuting on your own may make Sakshi tired and less energetic to be able to spend time with her kids.
d)Work Profile- is it a target oriented process or an individual role. Targets are everywhere but in order to achieve them, companies have their measures. This may sometimes get stressful.
Other than these factors with my experience with Amex, i would like to say its a cool place to work with lots of things happening around. The HR policies are great, the insurance offered is also wonderful (don't know if it has changed now). But as compared to the other companies its a great place to work with relaxed environment and ample room for someone to maintain work life balance.
worked in American express Financial centre,Delhi in the year 2005.It was long back and worked only for a year in that company.I quit that company just bcoz of personal reason.
Nothing much to share but the time I spend in Amex was awesome.I will always cherish the memories.
It's a great company to work with.Very women friendly and a very positive working environment as well.
So quickly coming to your questions now
1.I would rate it a 5 as it's very women friendly
2.I never had any disadvantage working there.As far as advantages are concerned,you will find many things happening in the company which will take you to your next level in your career.I have seen many people sticking to the same company for more than 10 to 15 years.So as far as my experience in the company is concerned it was a great working place for women.
