Can any American Express product managers weigh in on their happiness at the company? I was contacted by a recruiter but want to know what the work life and comp is like. Current work life is great, but very underpaid.

YOE: 2
TC: $102,500

    Tons of hierarchy, slow decision making and tons of politics. Depends if you’re motivated by efficiency, production and direct talk... as none of that happens here. People who settle in well from the outside, just want to coast. Otherwise most change makers leave after a year due to inability to create change.

      @ptg, isn’t the pay at Chase/JP Morgan/Morgan Stanley the same? Have a friend at Morgan and she said Marketing Pay at VP level’s cap is $120K

      At JPMorgan, marketing and product managers are two separate things

      @ptg does product make more? What about product marketing?

      Can’t speak for marketing, but it comes down to line of business as well. For example, product managers or marketers in the CIB make more than the ones in AWM.

    If you want to do nothing, few meetings a day and go home, then it's perfect for you. If you actually want to work and make a difference then no.
