    Pros

    People in the Data area of Information Technology are very helpful and willing to share their knowledge. There are numerous templates, procedures and policies so you don't have to reinvent the wheel to get things done. Sometimes this slows things down - too much process and rules, and not enough results. Collaboration and teamwork is key - teams work like a well-oiled machine. Management seems attentive to their employees' needs and the company tries to reasonably compensate and reward their employees.

    Cons

    The commute to Wilmington Delaware was a challenge. Wilmington itself is not particularly appealing. The company and it's culture were fine - the location and commute for me, personally, was a negative.

    Within IT, there seemed to be a tension between traditional windfall methodologies and fast moving agile methodologies, as the company attempts to be less bureaucratic and rigid and more responsive to business needs. The problem is that the systems and technologies are older and not easily adaptable to ever-changing needs. They need to update their database and transaction system technologies in order to expand business functionality quickly and efficiently in the future. This is a big deal, in terms of being time consuming, costly and high risk, as the old systems on the surface appear to work just fine, but beneath the covers, there are way too many band-aids and short cuts. The old systems are stretched too far. Replacing them with newer technologies is a daunting but necessary task. This is not unique to JP Morgan - every company faces this issue. It's just that some companies are attempting to deal with this issue, whereas JP Morgan is still grappling with their old systems and trying to hang in there. It is clearly time for them to move forward and onto new more intuitive technologies that will enable customer service reps to better serve JP Morgan's Client base. IT Professionals looking for the latest technologies may get frustrated here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to transition from older technologies to newer, more flexible ones. This will enable expansion of business functionality and will also attract a better employee base in the IT areas.
