    I worked at J.P. Morgan as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Offers entry-level positions flexible with education and experience requirements willingly to train

    Cons

    Training is awful, inadequate plus extremely unprofessional. After your new hire training is completed the learning curve is non exsisting. As I stated before, they will hire non experience employees and offer training but the training is awful.The training offered don't connect/relate to the actual work requirements.Once out of training you must rely on seasoned employees to actually sit by you and train you so basically all the prior weeks of classroom training was a waste of time. Once you are out of the classroom training and in production sitting next to seasoned employees than and only than you actually learn how to do the job which is sad because the employees training you also have their own work to complete. After new hire training is completed you are expected to be completely efficient immediately or you are fired! The daily work load/ requirements are completely unrealistic! Management is under constant fear of loosing their jobs so they manage/ micro manage new employees with/from this fear. So much bad office politics because of management insecurities and fears of loosing their positions. A total set up to fail. Very sad despressing place to work. Since this AML department at this company is very new i"m sure in time it will improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire experience confident seasoned sophisticated non trashy leadership with positive diverse backgrounds.Develope a training program that totally relates to the work requirements. Give new hires more than a few weeks learning curve before firing them. You are loosing good people by enforcing such unrealistic learning curves especially after offering such awful training. Ultimately your wasting time money and the company's resources.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan

    Pros

    - Excellent vacation time, personal, sick time
    - Location is ideal
    - Salary pays well; best I have received

    Cons

    - No work/life balance.
    - Too much overtime. If you have a family, go to school, forget about working here because it is not accommodating.
    - Micro-managed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people. They assign too much work to the ones already there and it causes employees to burn out.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart, dedicated people. Great benefits. Depending on manager - good flexibility (e.g., work from home). Easy to network. Values mobility.

    Cons

    Politics, fear-based decision-making. Lack of development for mid-senior individuals. OK compensation if not working in revenue-producing function. Regulatory giant on their back will take years to shake-off. Until then, anything but "get it done now" will be the norm.
    Bonus is political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack of caring will catch up; already losing top talent. Will lose more as market continues to open up.

    Pros

    Company has awesome vacation time and benefits!!!!

    Cons

    There is no growth within the company. Management has no respect for their employees nor are they educated on the duties and tasks surrounding the branch. It is difficult to ask for help or seek answers from management when they do not know the answers themselves.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan

    Pros

    Some great co-workers, Jamie Dimon, some great opportunities if you are one of the chosen few.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy and office politics are second to none and underneath the "culture and values" they really have no loyalty to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of ushering out your tenured high performing boomers to hire a cheaper workforce, why not just cut a few of the multitude of business trips and higher-up's frivolous expenses/bonuses to keep your loyal workforce? Shame on you.

    Pros

    They have good training for personal bankers, provide banker uniform

    Cons

    Watch out there are some branch managers that like to bully people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch some of your branch managers, they make more mistakes, break rules more than associates. Then they place blame on someone else.

    Pros

    401k, good benefits, HR is very helpful

    Cons

    They care very little about the employee and it takes too long to resolve issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Branch managers and assistant managers harassed by district managers to make sales. The DMs do not care about employee needs and would rather pressure them into quitting.

    Pros

    Decent compensation. So-so health benefits.

    Cons

    An organization concerned primarily with form, not substance.
    Traditional work ethic and values unwelcome here. Just toe the currently correct corp. line
    Top-heavy management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No one is listening, so what's the point.
