I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Amazing firm and resources, terrific product offerings for clients, smart hardworking people.

Cons

Accessing those resources is very tough when you join as an experienced hire. You'd better be supremely self confident, phenomenally resilient, impervious to threats and fear mongering, and very hard working and effective. You;ll get next to no feedback or guidance. The regulators are all over the firm, which has added to stress and a bad mood among employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put people (clients, employees) first. Put technology and systems in the service of people. The firm has grown so fast it is the other way around now.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Opportunities in different areas of bank. Movement to geographical areas possible if not always common. The cafeteria was very good with wide selection

    Cons

    Very Political. The impression is everyone is out to get you. Also, compensation is not good. I was told I work too little but bill too much. In other words, don't bill for all your hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people what they earn. Encourage more cooperation between departments

    I wish upper management cared about the teller side as much as they cared about the banking side.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good considering every other part time job is paying somewhere in the single digits. it preps you really well in knowing how to work quickly. The customers made me love what i do. As with any job if you have the right set of people you can work wonders.

    Cons

    The inability to work with your personal life is something I disdained. Due to recent changes in my district they are no longer hiring tellers within our region. This leaves many of the branches understaffed. Upper managements response is to let bankers jump on the teller windows and assist if need be. This creates an atmosphere of chaos leaving customers irritated. There have been many instances where customers would ask us "where's the staff".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the bankers do what they are paid to do and let that be the case with tellers. Also, if a branch needs help provide it to them. There is no business that is too strong to crumble.
