I have been working at J.P. Morgan

Pros

While JPMorgan Chase is a very big company, and managerial approaches differ, I have found that everywhere I have worked within the bank, the work / life balance has been very good. I have been able to take vacations, sick time, and other absentee days without being made to feel bad about it. Also, having the ability to work from home when necessary is a big plus as well. Although this would not apply to all positions in the bank.

Cons

This is a very large company, and really good talent may be over looked for a while, and may take time to be recognized by upper management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep your eyes on the future. Don't be afraid to intelligently embrace the benefits that new technology offers.

    Pros

    Chase has made many improvements since converting from Washington Mutual including benefits, work life balance, fairness in hiring, promoting, etc.

    Cons

    Chase is a really large bank and has the same issues WaMu had in communicating with employees. It's frustrating to hear about company changes in the news instead of through management channels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider growth an opportunity to get employee communication right.

    Pros

    large company, financially secure - there are lots of good people to work with, and many are very competent. lots of east coast jobs.

    Cons

    not enough communications between departments leads to a lot of churn. different groups have different processes that can lead to decisions that affect other teams without warning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    in general, I am pleased with the way senior management has handled the company during the financial crisis - keep doing what you are doing.
