Don’t leave home without it? Don’t leave this job if you’ve got it. Employees at the global payments giant laud the company’s commitment to career development programs—one epitomized by American Express’s Colleague Value Proposition initiative, which prioritizes a flexible, family-friendly work environment and aims to help employees diversify their skills with an eye toward progressing their careers.

The company also prides itself on a community-oriented culture exemplified by the American Express Foundation, which was founded in 1954 and has donated nearly $900 million to thousands of charitable organizations around the world. The foundation runs programs like the annual Consulting Challenge, in which AmEx employees work pro bono on consulting projects with nonprofit organizations over a 10-week period.
