    Pros

    Good pay. Good work/life balance.
    Internal mobility supported
    Decent benefits from what I can tell compared to others.
    Good retirement matching plan.

    Cons

    J.P. Morgan is a very, very large firm - unsurprisingly, there is big firm bureaucracy.
    Sometimes it seems the balance between documenting processes and doing other "busy work" kind of paperwork occupies an inordinate amount of time compared to getting to the core tasks at hand.
