Pros

I work in a new build, so the spotlight is on me to see how well I can perform in building a client base. The monthly incentive is not capped unlike almost every other bank. Your ability to earn those monthly incentives is easy to obtain, and the base is also very competitive. You are able to tell people you work for the largest and strongest bank around. In addition to the sales incentive, you also have an annual bonus based on P&L, and a quarterly bonus based on customer service scores.

Cons

Some of the more local management (Branch Managers & District Managers) can have a different approach to management can be convoluted at times. Believing that a banker should talk to a branch manager, and a branch manager should talk to the district manager because that is the chain of command. And some branch managers can be more hands off, and others are more micro managers. The reason this is an issue is because you move around a lot at Chase. There are always new opportunities, but also at the end of the year, they review everything and see if you deserve a promotion, or should just be moved to another branch.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We don't need micro management from the local level, and we should be able to communicate with upper management if the situation calls for it.

    Good company, must be willing to fend for your self.

    Pros

    Strong company. Senior leadership is very good. One of the best things is that Chase puts a lot of time and money into making technology available to the customer. There are also specialists for almost anything you can think of that will either know the answer, or will be able to find it and get back to you. Recently, Chase has begun moving back toward a customer service/relationship model, and if you can build relationships with customers that have larger portfolios it will benefit you.

    Cons

    As will most all very large companies, you are just another cog in the wheel. If you don't eat, drink, breath and sleep Chase, it can be difficult to be recognized and move up. In a smaller market you must be willing to play company politics to move quickly. There is very much a "what have you done lately" attitude by mid-management. There always seems to be the new "shinny object". There hasn't been much of a focus on long term client relationship building if you aren't working with affluent clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't play favorites. Realize that each branch situation is unique, has strengths and challenges and work to those. Don't move people around as much. Let a branch group work together for more that 6 months. Customers have a hard time, especially in areas with older clients, when there is a new manager every 6 months, and new bankers all the time.

    Pros

    Large company, more warm leads, great technology, access to bank clients for investments, bankers and other branch employees refer clients for investments

    Cons

    Must be in a large branch to make money as an FA, only one position available to move into for promotion versus many positions in other areas of Chase, VERY political when it comes to promotion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the advisors you have that are GOOD advisors, not just the ones who make the most numbers. Train the new Advisors more on products so they know what to say to clients.
