    Pros

    Networking within the company and with co-workers is very encouraged. Managers support your goals and work, which is really nice since there is a lot of opportunities for advancement and promotion.

    Cons

    It is easy to get lost in such a big company and feel unimportant, one way to avoid this problem is to be outspoken and always contribute to meetings and calls.

    Advice to Management

    Management should continue to be encouraging and supportive, while delegating projects that are not impossible but still challenging to employees. There should be a nice balance of teamwork and individual work.

    Pros

    Having Chase Bank on your resume is a good omen. It is also a laid back environment depending on your manager.

    Cons

    Chase fires old employees on a yearly basis and hire new employees in their bid to safe cost, this does not encourage company loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    Please promote from within and make open senior positions known to the current employees to also interview and have a level playing ground.

    Pros

    Worked with lots of good people with the same excellent work ethics from all ethnicities which I felt was great cause we got things done correctly by working together as a team.

    Cons

    There was a lot of micro managing from supervisors/mangers, a LOT of favoritism from the top down, couldn't get answers from management for the correct procedures that have been changed many times, at department meetings - told to ask questions & give ideas that will improve work flow during the meeting, but then chastised by the facilitators of the meeting when a person does ask a question he/she doesn't like & the underlings ideas aren't good enough to be tried, also, its not what you know - its who you know for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the micro management/favoritism/nepotism, hire supervisors/mangers that knows the ins/outs of the work of the department they are running or train them first about the work of the department until they do, also, practice what you preach about how to have a pleasant corporate environment for employees.

    Pros

    It's a very clean and secure place to work. Company does care about input from employees and tries to make it a good place for the employees to work.

    Cons

    Company is all about the developing of employees but lacks any kind of incentives for the ones they want to drive this type of culture, the supervisors. Low pay for what is expected.

    Advice to Management

    Change the treatment of your front line supervisors. They like recognition too and desire some kind of incentive.

    Pros

    Salary and Benefits very good. The company seems to be supportive of internal transfers. The federal government has declared them too big to let fail.

    Cons

    This only applies to IT because I believe it's very different from the rest of the company. They are at least 10 years behind in technology. If you like staying up with technology then stay away. The bureaucracy is absolutely incredible. IT workers don't have access to the tools they need to do their job and can't access systems to do their jobs. 10 years ago I estimated that Chase required 10 IT workers to do the work of 1. Today I would estimate it to be around 20 to 1. IT workers are not trusted to do anything. IT employees act out in passive aggressive ways to get out their frustrations. Technical people do not stay.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your IT employees and let them work! I understand regulations and government intervention and I don't believe it has to be this way.
