    Pros

    During certain times of the year we have team building get together a where the upper management is involved with the different depts.

    Cons

    Upper management isn't aware of the daily conflicts we face in each department, not enough interaction with staff, not enough listening

    Advice to Management

    Great management makes great team , learn your staff and their job. Listen to their concerns and interact with them. You're staff want's to feel appreciated and understood.

    Pros

    They have good benefits and flexible work from home arrangements. Upper management is ok depending on your department

    Cons

    It is difficult to move around the company and get compensated for your work. They have a lot of lateral moves or minimum increases.

    Advice to Management

    Consider changing the mobility options. Lose grear talent by not paying for the worm that is done by employees.

    Pros

    I worked in the Technology department and Chase is always looking to be innovative and be one of the leaders in the technology (especially financial) industry. That's one of the benefits of working for such a big, successful company. There are also great opportunities for mobility since there are so many departments/groups. This past year it seems like they're trying to actually listen to employee feedback and make the work environment better. Working at Chase is also a great resume booster! All the companies in Columbus know that.

    Cons

    With any big company, there are some disadvantages. My biggest problem is the compensation process. It seems like individual performance reviews are taken into consideration and it just depends how the department does. There are also many people who are lazy and don't do much and get overpaid. I came in through Corporate Development Program out of college which was supposed to help provided training and resources to be successful, but instead it held me back from moving up within the company. If you apply for a job out of college instead of participating in the Corporate Development Program, you'll get paid more. I don't know if the program has gotten better since I went through it, but I sure hope so.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain talent, reward talent.

    Pros

    Worked with some great people. I wish I had more positive things to say. Unfortunately, the benefits, pay, overall work balance was great when I started in 2002. Everything went downhill, hence, why I left.

    Cons

    I worked in a call center taking inbound calls as a Mortgage Banker. The leads were not distributed on a fair basis. They had a way of keeping the top dogs on top and bottom dwellers at the bottom. Hence, why there was a huge settlement after the dept was sued for discrimination.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, what a stressful and unsatisfying experience. Having to play the game of politics and all the bureaucracy that comes with it is not fun. It was an unhealthy environment for many. We faced discrimination on a daily basis, (race, gender, lead source, etc) as there was definitely not a fair playing field in Consumer Direct. I have given so much over my ten years with this dept, I feel like the life was sucked right out of me.

    Pros

    Well thought of company with a good reputation for earnings.

    Cons

    Customers are treated golden, employees are nothing more than a number. Technology is all geared towards the customer while employees work on outdated or retrofitted systems that are outdated or home made by someone. The only upside to this is employees remain employed. If Chase ever truly takes a look creating synergies/efficiences, a quarter of the workforce would be laid off.

    Others say there is opportunity for advancement. That might be true in a call center where one starts as a phone associate and moves up to become a supervisor. Most opportunities come through lateral movement to another department, with no increase in pay. I've known many employees who became dissatisfied with their jobs and simply moved to another department. However, this is a 2 year trend as these same employees became dissatisfied with their new roles, and simply move from department to department. And so the trend continues.

    Advice to Management

    There is a phrase in Chase, "Do you want the REAL answer, or do you want the CHASE answer?" Basically, and sadly, senior managers never hear the truth. Therefore, employee issues are not resolved. Employee are bribed or threatened to give more positive feedback than is true. Managers see the "annonymous" employee comments, but in small departments it's too easy to know who the negative feedback is from. Senior leaders, please wake up before it's too late.

    Pros

    Big company provides internal opportunities for the career growth. Internal training on various technology topics and new trends in business.

    Cons

    A lot of bureaucracy, not employee friendly, too many after work hours and weekend work. Not good at the rewarding employees.

    Advice to Management

    Build a trustful environment and life work balance for employees. Invest in career advancement for employes. Allow for the external training.
