Contractors get short changed
Marketing Consultant (Freelance) (現在は退職) – New York, NY – 2018年6月27日
Unless you're hired on as a permanent employee, you are cut out of nearly all development opportunities. The company culture has declined in the last decade. As more millenials enter the workplace, there is less formality and adherence to social norms that keep the Amex culture supportive for all. After working there for several years as a contractor, despite solid work and great relationships, I was not able to convert to full time (Its extremely competitive so connections + friendships matter much more than skills!). Unfortunately, some of the disengaged managers take no real interest in your career development since you are not "a real employee" -- a disappointing change from the way the company used to be.
