    I have been working at J.P. Morgan as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    None. There is nothing redeeming about this company.

    Cons

    Offshore mentality. Most if not all contractors are furloughed the last week of the year. Extremely cheap, penny-wise, pound-foolish, etc. For instance, developed on an Android platform but forced to use an emulator. No devices provided. They push deadlines requiring overtime but no method to bill more than an 8hr/day. If a holiday falls on a weekday, it's a 32hr week no matter how many hours you worked. The company generates $1B/week yet some teams cluster and buy their own spring water (5 Gallon drums are found throughout the DE office). Coffee? Go hump and buy some at the overly-priced cafeteria. Need basic office supplies (pens, staplers, etc.)? Bah...hah...ha! You get the point...

    There is no way this place can keep the "best and the brightest." It seems more like an effort to keep the "desperate and the dim-witted."

    Finally, look at the recent crime this company was just fined for. $13B!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sucking-up the chain as well as strangling the budget of teams beneath you. Stop the conflict of interest in seeing how much greed you can get away with.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large, stable company with good opportunities for internal movement. Many hard-working, smart people work there. Pays extremely well depending on the specific position.

    Cons

    High level of bureaucracy sometimes makes decision making slower. Large hierarchy makes it difficult for upper management to hear employee concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
