Pros

Work life balance is great, Plenty of opportunities to demonstrate creativity. Client focused environment is fostered and a associates are fairly compensated.

Global reach can be overwhelming because you are expected to work late hours are for the sake of collaborating with others in EMEA.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time engaging with employees and clients to get a good grasp of how the two impact each other.

    Pros

    Benefits including vacations and the ability to work from home are great. Salaried workers receive 4 weeks vacation at the time of hire (pro-rated). The locations in downtown Chicago are near the trains and easily accessible to commuters.

    Cons

    Appraisals are based on a curve, which makes it extremely competitive and does not foster teamwork. For example, if there are 20 employees on a team at the same grade level, 3 will exceed expectations, 14 will meet expectations, and 3 will not meet expectations. This is when politics, nepotism, and cut throat behavior comes into play. Yes nepotism is alive and well at JPMC! Additionally, overtime is expected and evaluated on your performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Objectivity is sorely missing in the workplace. The current appraisal process is not entirely based on metrics, but on "FaceTime" and not what you know but who you know. Work/Life balance is preached as a concept, but not practiced. Management has made it clear that 100% is not enough.

    Pros

    They offer anice Roth 401(k) plan. Turnover is high, so they are always hiring people. The operations center on the west side of Indianapolis appears unlikely to get relocated to Bangalore.

    Cons

    The work is drudgery, and the pay is bad. Promotions are offered only to meek, mild-mannered folks who will always say "yes." There is a lot of talk about process improvement, but it's like turning a battleship with a frozen rudder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on what frontline people are telling you and less on how they are saying it. Consider putting a stop to the practice of forcing mandatory overtime and refusing to pay for it.
