    Pros

    Don't see any advantage working for this company. Feeling very low on confidence.

    Cons

    All projects run by consultants closer to Managers, FTE Managers are even getting a % of the consultant salary. FTE Manager bring their friends as consultants through know consulting companies and they get a cut for this. Culture is spoiled to the core, feels like working in Hyderabad based company / Telegu Desam in India

    Advice to Management

    Monitor vendors of the consultants and see if Manager are getting illegal cuts from these kind of Vendors.

    Pros

    Investment in IT is great. Compensation is good.

    Cons

    Training of existing employees is given short shrift. Processes change often, and not always positively, without good notification. Existing employees not given any extra consideration in searching for new opportunities.

    I have worked at JPMC for 28+ years. I have gained immense experience and highly recommend JPMC.

    Cons

    Very large company. You need to take hold of your own career path......don't expect anyone to do it for you.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to take notice of their employes abilities and make it a priority to help guide their career path/growth.

    Pros

    Big Bank Big Enterprise Good Commute Located in a nice place Experience of working in largetst bank

    Cons

    They make you slog day and Night Pay is terrible Benefits are horrible

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better . Stop using perfomance management as a way to get rid of Good employees. It is not acceptable that a 5 star rated employee becomes one star next year and the employees are put on notice when the management gets bonuses.

    Pros

    working remote, close to public transportation, peers.

    Cons

    silos, having to manage up, no motivation to innovate or change. salary is way below market. no job mobility (despite what they say, it doesn't exist. Recruiters treats internal employees the same as external employees). Not required to have onsite management, call me old school but managers need to be onsite.

    Advice to Management

    Senior senior leaders need to change the culture and actually execute on what they preach.
