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

    Pros

    Some of the smartest and hardest working people I've ever worked with. Expectations are high and that you can keep up in the fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Low pay despite long hours and high performance (consistently highly rated but compensation never reflected it - main driver of my departure).
    Lots of bureaucracy to deal with, sometimes impedes progress and makes decision making harder than it should be

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, benefits, pay and challenging roles all make this a really great place to work.
    I have truly grown here due to the many exceptional people I have worked with and the variety of projects I have been a part of.

    Cons

    Although there are countless opportunities here, at a certain point, there seems to be no clear path for taking that next career step.

    Former Employee - Bank Teller in Chicago, IL

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

    Pros

    Part-time teller, when I worked for the company over a year ago, either worked 20 or 30 hours per week. Being part-time you still get paid vacations days, paid sick days, the option to get health, vision and dental insurance. Once you are vested with the company you have the option to get a 401K where the company matches up to 5%, a retirement plan and the option to buy stock. You even get commission type things and possible bonuses at the end of the year. Not too shabby.

    Cons

    It is a major corporation so you have a lot of rules and a lot of management above you.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexibility to handle family issues. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Required training that is not applicable to your job. Management not appreciative of special talents. New emphasis on risk, and policies and procedures above all else. Lots of re-orgs. Over three years, company wanted to sell business unit, then invest in business unit, then disband business unit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on one direction and stick to it to make it work.

    Excellent Summer Internship Program

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan as an intern for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was a technology analyst intern this past summer. From the start of the program, I really liked the fact that they had me working on a project that was actually used in my team's product. Most people were great to work with and were very helpful throughout the summer. Overall, this was a great opportunity!

    Cons

    In a firm as large as JPMC, getting access to certain tools/software can take time. But, this is probably the case at any company just as large.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! Please continue the senior speaker events throughout the summer. They really provided most interns insight into what their careers can progress into and other areas of business at JPMC. Also, a lot of these speakers, most notably Jamie Dimon, were very inspirational.

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

    Pros

    Close knit workplace, team atmosphere with little office drama compared to my current place of employment. Advancement for those who want it, security for those who perform.

    Cons

    Pay increases are hard to come by even when advancing, compeditors pay more by 15-20 percent for the same kind of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax the pay increase rules as it pertains to promotions and you will keep your top tallent. Don't keep good people in low salaries for rules that can be applied where never intended.
