    Pros

    The benefits are great, as well as most of the people. Chase management rewards based on performance, so any type of slacking influences your pay.

    Cons

    Be ready to work like a slave for 50+ hours a week. Its worth it in the end, but if you can't take that kind of heat, I suggest you look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd implement more employee appreciation gestures, such as free food, or football tickets. Happy employees work harder than disgruntled ones.

    Becoming too corporate, less focus on customer service and employee satisfaction, More focus on being a car salesman.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    commission, some coworkers are enjoyable, get you licensed

    Cons

    poor management, clear trickle down effect. Very few managers are individuals, they are simply robots transferring information from higher ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management takes strong leadership, take responsibility and own your branches. Use common sense. There is a growing amount of spineless women being hired as managers because they are easily influenced and controlled. When i first started in 2010, I only had women management and they were great, all formerly managers from Washington mutual. Chase has stripped all independence from their managers and you are now robots working for the man, instead of regular people helping customers. You are now just a Big business that hooked a great population of consumers on an idea of a big bank with a small bank feel, but now that you have all the customers, you car just going back to a corporate big bank that only cares about the big fish.

    Pros

    great training, good people with strong work ethic, excellent benefits, diversity key, strong management

    Cons

    Branch level employees are grossly underpaid and overworked. Alot of pressure to find ways to make money outside of salary for bankers. Salary extremely low and highly incentive based. Issue is bankers are bogged down with playing door greeter instread being able to focus on task to make them money for liveable wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to reward branch employees for their work. Alot of turnover and new employees should not come in making same money as experienced bankers. No annual salary increase is degrating to staff and lowers moral. No Branch managers have too much control. Also open company up to advancement internally.

    Pros

    Good work life balance and 3 weeks of vacation for new hires. Plenty of company paid sick time if you have to take care of sick children at home.

    Cons

    Base pay is very low for Personal Banker position and commission plan continues to decrease every year, high deductible company health insurance. No annual base pay increases unless you are promoted to a new position.

    Offer annual base pay increases to employees performing well
