I worked at Chase full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Overall, company is very good to work for - during natural disasters, they offered their employees small grants, above and beyond their normal salary, and allowed other employees to donate time off, money, etc. In addition, the retail people really connect with the community and come in to help the community during natural disasters - without being forced or pressured.

Cons

Working in the Corporate group (non-customer facing) can be challenging, especially in the IT group. You have some Managers who have a chip on their shoulders, don't stick up for their people during rank and rating, and don't care about your work/life balance (especially if the reporting structure goes up to NYC).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't give employee surveys, have upper management acknowledge the issues, then not do anything to address it. Don't do forced rank and rating - not fair to those who do their job, then get ranked lower because of a bell curve. Lastly, don't promote incompetence - just because a person does their job well doesn't mean they can manage people well.

    I worked at Chase

    Pros

    Great place to learn retail banking and get management experience. A leader in technology, but failling behind in product offering and not very competitive when it came to rates with other banks.

    Cons

    Locked down to the branch daily, struggled to take time off, FTE was not appropriate for goals. No authority to make decisions on loans or rates, everything had to pass through multiple levels of approval even for the smallest changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at the district manaers, a lot of them haven't been branch managers in so many years and have lost touch about what it takes to manage a branch. So much has changed in the branch enviroment, but the DM level seems to not have adapted.
