I have been working at J.P. Morgan part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Job is relatively simple, as far as what you need to do in terms of actual work. Working for the company provides countless benefits that are pretty necessary in life.

Cons

Customers frequently have poor attitudes and are difficult to deal with, but keep in mind that now-a-days most people only come into the bank if they have a problem. Sometimes it is difficult to deal with micro-managing and drama, but it is all about the mindset you go to work with.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be available to help your employees with their needs and weaker areas as opposed to focusing on every tiny detail without recognizing the employees progress and helping to further their success.

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

    Pros

    -Good benefits
    -A fair amount of friendly people going throught the same grind as you
    -One of the better banks in terms of layoffs, have not been as quick to reduce headcount

    Cons

    Many
    -Pay is below average-I reiterate what others have said that the only leverage you have on salary is during the hiring stage. Once you are in, forget it, unless you are really tight with your manager. My raises/bonuses never exceded 10%, and that was in stellar years, figure 5% on average for support positions, and thats for TOP performers!
    -Unless you have a manager willing to really go to bat for you, you will never be promoted. Doing a good job is not enough, you have to be an all-star. I have heard of people who had to leave the company, and then come back to get to a higher level.
    -Spoiled front office personnel-rich pricks that are upset they spend their whole lives in the office. They make millions, and its never enough. Young analyts/associates driven purely by greed.
    -Finally, as the title says, unless you are in the "front" you are in the "rear". Support personel, ie those that dont generate revenues for the company, are an expense, and you are treated as such. Accounting is typically seen as a profession, not here. Very clear line between who is valued and who isnt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ugh, where to begin
    -JD, quit it with the outsourcing. It is coming back to bite the company in the ass.
    -Promote from within!!! I dont want to see a job posting on the internet for a role that is right above me!! Give people a chance to try and fail. That how it used to work in the old days.
    -Dont nickel and dime long time employees. Longevity should have its benefits. Make people in support postions feel more valuable, if by no other means than giving them a few extra thousand if they deserve it. It means so little to the company, and so much to individual.
    -Have managers take classes on how to manage-just because someone is smart doesnt mean they know how to manage people. This is RAMPANT at the company. Have them make their staff feel more important. Have them take every employees performace review with the greatest level of professionalism and attention it deserves. A once a year review should be taken seriously.
