    I worked at J.P. Morgan as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    You ge4t to work internationally. I worked with a team out of London and they were amazing. You also learn about technology and they have a great speak series.

    Cons

    It's a big company so your project work makes you feel like you have no impact. Also slow to make progress due to red tape and size. At the end of the day, it's a big company. There are pros and cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat interns like full time, my manager was great, but the norm seemed that interns did grunt work.

    Pros

    Good brand name to have on your resume. If you are targeting other big name companies, then it is a good name to have on your resume. I have heard back from companies like Google once I put their name on my resume.

    Cons

    Biased management which will give credit for your work to their own "Yes Men". Horrible work/life balance missing something as basic as a library and charging you even for a simple water bottle. They will expect you to work beyond your 40 hours on weekends as well with no compensation or reward, however they will flag you on other days even if you are 10 minutes late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give due credit to the actual employee who does the work instead of giving it to your "yes man".

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I found working at JP Morgan to be *very* dependent on what team you're on - some teams are great, some are awful, most are somewhere in between. BUT I the amount of mobility that was possible (especially within IT) was enough to ensure that you could find a great situation with a little bit of effort. Great pay, too.

    Cons

    The company is so huge that you can get lost sometimes. You might have to be shrewd or do a little political positioning to get to where you want to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Constant reorganizing means those at the bottom are busy renaming/reworking things instead of moving forward with important projects.
