    Former Employee - Branch Manager in Chicago, IL

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Perks such as free banking accounts, free passes to museums, events, etc. strong management, great technology, software systems, CRM

    Cons

    Executive level management team, switching corporate strategy/culture every 1 or 2 years makes mid and lower level management seem inconsistent and like hypocrites

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the leader in the banking industry compensate your employees accordingly from top to bottom and treat them well by not overworking them with understaffed branches and you won't have such a high employee turnover. Make it easier for employees to transition from retail to corporate side if desired and qualified.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working for J.P. Morgan wasn't as bad as I expected it to be, I was going to school at the time and they were flexible with hours and since I was pretty accurate with my typing I never got yelled at. Others were yelled at weekly for being under the accuracy mark.

    Cons

    Production based environment where you are constantly working, not much time to talk to coworkers when you are typing the entire shift.

    Great firm, hard work but you are compensated well for it. The people at the firm are simply incredible, they truly care about you. Very "flat" structure. Best training program for Analysts coming out of Undergraduate programs.
