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

    Pros

    First, I left a bit ago. Dimon has cleaned up a lot. He is demanding (as he should be) and doesn't tolerate stupidity (if he knows about it).

    Cons

    In many retail - non customer facing - areas and Treasury there are a bunch political second raters who hold onto their jobs by acting like they are working and don't produce anything that makes money for the bank. Jamie has eliminated a lot, but not all - and these hangers on are producing "C" work at best. They are clever about preserving their own jobs, and will find reasons to use HR to eliminate those they don't want. If necessary, they will lie outright. This is retail banking - it doesn't attract a genius, but the can move the bar up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it a meritocracy. Watch for the old hacks. Use exact metrics to see if departments, products, etc. are profitable after all is considered. Watch HR, they never produce anything but are part of many political happenings. Find the good people somehow, and take them aside and somehow mentor them. Otherwise, they will leave. Watch out for the people there for very many years. Either they are OK, some good, but many good at hanging on. Nothing else interested them in all the years?

    You make your money walking in the door, don't expect a lot of career growth.

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

    Pros

    Great learning experiences and education opportunities and good people to work with lots of opportunities for varied experience the staff are very helpful with assisting you on your career

    Cons

    Degrees mean nothing, long hours are expected, technology is at least 10 years behind and management is pretty disconnected from the working staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn that 60hr weeks are not productive and when someone goes above and beyond normal efforts not expected efforts reward it with more than a pat on the back and a meaningless title.
