    Pros

    Great people, smart and hard working. Good product.

    Cons

    Leadership does not care about people and morale is low due to constant lay offs. Work life balance is non-existent; expect to work 70-80 hours/week and most weekends.

    Pros

    Benefits, salary in some areas

    Cons

    Very political and management always focused on how to fill their bank accounts with money at the demise of the people who actually do the work. A significant amount of staff layoffs where management is rewarded for the down sizing and staff are left hanging to find new opportunities. Management always focused on pushing staff to move to next step up at the sacrafice of the workers.

    Advice to Management

    Truly help staff to accomplish what they want to do. Not everyone wants to be in management nor are they good at it. The firm tends to promote only 'yes' people at the sacrafice of solid workers

    Pros

    Fun environment to work in and it's easy to move up. You get bonuses quarterly if your branch does well which is an incentive for employees to work hard.

    Cons

    Management could be better. They don't treat their employees well and aren't friendly. They make scheduling really hard and have a hard time working with students.

    Pros

    There are many pros when you work for the largest bank in the United States. They offered great training and I was well prepared to working in my first call center. They hourly pay was good and they also offer overtime to all employees which is a great way to make extra money. I was there for almost 2 years and received numerous awards, but was never promoted nor given a raise so I left the company.

    Cons

    The reviews are very strict so one must make sure that he or she does everything the way they want you to or you will not get a raise.

    Advice to Management

    There was a lot of micro management which was good and bad. The bi-annual and annual reviews were way to strict making it very difficult for anyone to get a raise.

    Pros

    Chase offers - Decent wages, flexible hours (at least in my experience) and great benefits. There are opportunities to move up if desired.

    Cons

    There is a bit of micro management and a feeling of only being a number not a person.

    Advice to Management

    Make people skills part of mandatory training for supervisor positions and up. Keep in mind quality over quantity is important.
