    Pros

    I had the chance to learn a lot. A good place for after college. I recommend get in and get out.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. At JPMorgan you're considered a number, like cattle. I never received the credit I deserved or ever felt appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much upper management would do.

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

    Pros

    Name on resume looks good

    Cons

    Systems are old, (felt like I was in 1993) training is nonexistent, literally have to fight to learn job, high turnover, employees quit left and right with zero notice. Pay isn't great, morale is awful, health insurance is the worst available plans under cigna and united healthcare. The cons can go on for LIFE...Just run! If you take a job here make sure it's short term just so you have the name on your resume.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn your jobs, and train employees instead of going to the bars during lunch

    Former Employee - Hegde Fund Accounting in Boston, MA

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

    Pros

    As I said in my title, it's a great learning experience for people straight out of college. You get your feet wet and learn how to basically use a computer all over again (excel plus various software programs relevant to your dept - in this case fund accounting)

    Cons

    Tons and tons of slack management who want to squeeze every single penny from the client and put in their sleezy pockets. Why out source loads of jobs if your just gonna replace ppl in the US 1 for 1? Every one person replaced in the US there should be at least 2-3 in India or Phillippines idiots!!! Hedge fund services is a dying case in Boston. Ask them what the turnover ratio was like between 2011 and 2013? Prob 90%!!! That shows how much ppl like working there or feel liek they have some sort of future. The only ppl that are still full time there 2 years or more are the ones who aren't good enough to get hired anywhere else because I know for a fact that THEY ARE ALL LOOKING!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit trying to under bid all your competitors for clients if you can't afford to pay staff to do the jobs your contracted to do (accurately at least). Promote within. Show some moral and compassion to employees who are trying to have a life outside the office. More ppl need to be hired to do the jobs required. You can't keep hiring and training temps cus then they leave along with full time staff.
