    Pros

    Great pay, culture, opportunities for growth and success. Excellent training structure and ability to obtain the skills necessary to succeed. Supportive management that foster and environment you want to work in.

    Cons

    No real cons that I can think of. The only thing is J.P. Morgan is so big that the ladder if very high to climb. You have plenty of intelligent colleagues to compete with when climbing, but that's not really a bad thing because they challenge you and you can learn from everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, continue to foster an environment that your employees want to work for. Maintain the values that have placed J.P. Morgan at the top of the list of firms worldwide.

    Pros

    Good experience, 401k, profit sharing, health and life benefits. Close to work and discounts on products.

    Cons

    Underpaid and under recognized. Overly worked and when problems with management HR seems take sides.

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of little things your employees do and keep an open mind. Take notice of talent and make sure they get promoted.

    Pros

    Interesting client base, good benefits, good work/ life balance, there are different areas within loan operations that you can move to fairly easily.

    Cons

    It's difficult to move outside of operations or middle office functions. The skills are very job specific and won't translate well to other areas of banking. Some people are there just to collect paychecks.

    Pros

    Great name in banking and lots of opportunity in traditional and non-traditional areas. Opportunity for independence and to take the lead on projects.

    Cons

    Regulatory environment is challenging. Large organization with lots of layers and complicated reporting structure that changes frequently. Internally complex.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in middle management. Refrain from springboarding people through business leadership for 2 years and leaving the staff scrambling with each new change.
