Former Employee - Executive Director in London, England (UK)

I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Strong profile - blue-chip image is great for the CV
Promotion and staff grading structure allows career progression - but may need to move to different departments to achieve this

Cons

Strong "grey-hair mentality" in some departments - the older you are, the more you may get listened too
Lots of people who have been around for a long time - stuck in their ways
Short-termist hire and fire mentality driven by US management - often make wrong decisions for global business

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For anyone joining outside of the US, be in no doubt that you are joining an American bank - do not expect much delegation of power or authority to anyone outside the US.
For big promotions you may have to move to the US to take up a global role

    Take more responsibility in understanding the tasks of the people you manage so that you can make better calls on the course going forward and avoid getting deceived by politicians who don't really care about the company.
