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

Pros

Much lower stress
Lots of people to work/learn from
Stable company
Pretty hard to get terminated after your 90 days.

Cons

Health Insurance
Internal Promotion very difficult and convoluted
Slow to adopt technology
Merit compensation has a glass ceiling.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The common message for any grievance is "that's just the way it is". When you know a majority of employees are unhappy but refuse to do anything, talent is going to go where they are appreciated.

    Great Company to work for. Not much room for advancement though. Be happy in your position.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people to work with. Getting to know the clients is fun as well.

    Cons

    No room for career advancement. I was there for 6 years, while I was going to school. Finished school and after a year and a half of trying to move up or be promoted I never got the chance. So many people are fighting for the same position, it is IMPOSSIBLE to get what you want/deserve unless you know the "right" person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the little guys a chance once in a while you will be surprised!

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan

    Pros

    Company cares about employees, opportunities to join groups and network outside of company

    Cons

    The company is so big it is unlikely you will be promoted within 2 years even though they say if you havent been promoted in 2 years then your doing something wrong
