    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My management was awesome. I had wfh one day a week, great benefits, and health plan.

    Cons

    I worked in the corporate office in Lewisville. Initially the environment was great, everyone were friends and we did alot of pot lucks. Then layoffs started and the employee moral had decreased. The team members were given more work and were appreciated less. We did less team building activities too. It became a work-only type of environment in which people just came in, did their 8-5 shift (sometimes overtime), and went home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Positive environment keeps everyone happy, wanting to produce quality work, and prevents great employees from leaving the company.

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

    Pros

    The work was consistent. There's always checks to cash and applications to process. There are some good corporate perks through Chase and other various programs.

    Cons

    The company is so large there isn't really a personal touch. You're basically a number who performs various functions on numbers. But if you don't mind just showing up and doing your work it's a good job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you treat your employees with respect. Do your best to provide career and development opportunities. Take personal interest in your employees.

    Former Employee - Applications Developer Intern in Dallas, TX

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

    Pros

    High pay for internship role, low pay for starting salary. Won't be taking offer with them as it is 10-15k less than the market for my major. Old and out dated technologies.

    Cons

    Internship is structured so that an offer is extended and must be accepted or declined before you begin your final year of college, in essence if you accept it you are being recruited before other companies can give you offers. That combined with the less than average salary makes it seem like a scam to me, they are looking to hire bright, intelligent employees, at an underpaid starting salary, before other companies can give them offers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was very friendly and easy to get along with, the biggest complaints were with the overarching structure of the internship, not with the individual managers I worked with. They were all nice and helpful people.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a job is the only pro. It is by far one of the worse companies I have worked for. The supervisors and management are either too laid back and indifferent or strict and over your shoulder all the time. They micromanage everything with their time and processed items programs they have. It measures productivity which in hindsight is a bad idea for the people with several job functions throughout their shift. You will get laid off if you dont meet their standards of productivity no matter how hard you work and how much you lend yourself to other departments

    Cons

    High turn over
    lack of management or managerial training
    Non department specific training classes
    Pick and choose what skills you learn for your department, you won't know everything if you needed to fill in for a member of your team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit your day job, lack of job skills on your part makes very unhappy employees

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Top benefits, great rewards for hard workers who come up with efficient methods and positive solutions. Lots of lateral mobility. Environment that encourages change and improvement. If the culture of the firm suits you, then you will keep wanting to come back (if you ever do leave). You get a feeling that you are working in a center of excellence. Work from home opportunities are great!

    Cons

    Not for those who are afraid of change. Could be a lot of long hours if there is a new implementation or client. This can interfere with work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    JPMorgan is focused on cost cutting and efficiency but sometimes sacrifices the human aspect of employees. Please shift a bit more to caring about employees to maintain a balance. Try to bring back the loyalty that it once was.

    The experience at JP Morgan was great, great company to work for with excellent benefits.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company offers in house transfers, you have to be flexible to work for JP Morgan Chase.

    Cons

    Sometimes your position may change so therefore you must be flexible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time off policies may need to be amended. I don't understand how a person can have a time off balance but then if you call in sick the employee receives an occurrence.
