    Pros

    Good pay. Good work/life balance.
    Internal mobility supported
    Decent benefits from what I can tell compared to others.
    Good retirement matching plan.

    Cons

    J.P. Morgan is a very, very large firm - unsurprisingly, there is big firm bureaucracy.
    Sometimes it seems the balance between documenting processes and doing other "busy work" kind of paperwork occupies an inordinate amount of time compared to getting to the core tasks at hand.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan

    Pros

    The company has positions all over the globe so it is possible to move and still keep a job within the company.

    Cons

    They continue to block bankers from getting any increase in salary and lower the incentive possibilities.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, A lot of opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Promotions don't come with a pay bump.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When promoting someone who takes one more responsibility they should get more money, and in a timely manner.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Top of the line in customer service for a large bank. Very advanced technology and the necessary security features that need to be included which is driving the banking of the future. Hours are great and allows for a well-balanced work vs. personal life. I have yet to find a branch with people that I didn't enjoy working with.

    Cons

    Can be a little overboard on some risk assessment factors. I feel that HR and some of the corporate sectors are very unwilling to understand situations from an objective standpoint which can be frustrating when trying to get answers or discuss personal concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a clearer guide for career mobility, especially with the huge shift in roles that has occurred over the last few years because it is easy to get lost in direction when a desired position that someone has been working towards just disappears. Try to be more understanding of employee concerns and offer more answers rather than just saying "that's the way it is."

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    People are friendly and open
    A lot of possibilities to grow as a developer

    Cons

    JP Morgan is a bank, it has change management and infrastructure deployment systems which are geared towards fulfilling audit requirements. Continuous delivery is difficult.
    It is easier to create software that rocks here than to make sure that this software actually gets deployed to production

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the red tape while preserving the controls
    Attract good people in infrastructure services to make the work life of all employees more interesting and your operations more streamlined
    Reduce the sycophancy and encourage people to produce constructive criticisms
