    Pros

    Fun place to work. The company was a relaxed environment on the home mortgage side. I liked my managers,

    Cons

    Laid off despite top 5% in production and one of the lead performers in my department. I never received benefits while working at Chase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more proactive with keeping good employees.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It is a huge company so there a lot of people to meet and places to work. You can work with different people not just all over the U.S. but also the entire world. Also, you can most likely find something that sparks your interest and network to put yourself in a better position to obtain your goals.

    Cons

    It's a lot harder to get the salary you should be paid if you only move within the company. They value talent that comes from outside the company much more and definitely show it in how they pay outside managers versus internal. If you start here, and like it, it's much better to leave and come back later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible in terms of training, education, and the career aspirations of employees.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ability to move around and gain a greater breath of business acumen. Exposure to cutting edge technologies and work life balance add to the benefits.

    Cons

    Promotional opportunities are limited but ability to lateral is encouraged. The parking is very limited in the Polaris campus creating a culture of eating at desks for lunch since it is too difficult to leave for lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote within the company when warranted versus looking outside. While it is excellent approach to get fresh views into the company, it is a better strategy to carefully balance the new hires with internal promotions.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people you work with are top-notc. They are more interested in getting the job done right than making sure they get credit for all the things that just happen to go right. Good vacation benefits and pay

    Cons

    Pay increases are incremental and not closely tied to individual performance, but rather to the performance of the division or organization.

    Current Employee - Deposit Account Collections Specialist II in Columbus, OH

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Very competitive benefits packages
    -A lot of paid vacation time, even for new employees
    -tuition reimbursement after working for the company for 1 year

    Cons

    -Management tends to tow the company line, specifically when it comes to policy that doesn't make sense
    -grading for quality standards vary from manager to manager
    -training is not very good. peer coaching is excellent, but peer coaches are not adequately compensated so most stop assisting new hires after a week or so

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -streamline training and internally hire job-specific trainers, that way we can ensure they know what they're talking about.
    -compensate employees that do more for the company (peer coaches get bas pay and often miss out on the chance to bonus, usually resulting in the new hires getting more pay than them)

    Lies

    Former Employee - Operations Senior Specialist in Westerville, OH

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working for a contract company while there, my co workers were very nice & some are still my friends.

    Cons

    The lies of them saying that they'd treat employees with respect, fairness, no discrimination/nepotism/favoritism, spending time taking test of how employees are to be treated & then expected to finish an outrage quote & the brain washing of some that they are being treated well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many of the department supervisors were hired in to departments that they had the slightest idea of what that department did, how it is done, what the purpose is for & they'd fix the processes that weren't broken, then go back to the original process, add multiple programs to processes that are very time consuming that crashes often & some of the supervisors/AVP's/VP's/managers/team leads don't know how to treat people & will stab people in the back just because their manager told them to.
