    Pros

    Overall JPM is a rock solid company with a broad array of different opportunities across the U.S. Jamie Dimon is top notch CEO and has made the bank a force to be reckoned with on Wall Street.

    -Competitive Pay
    -Good 401k match
    -20 days off plus bank holidays
    -Education Reimbusement

    Cons

    It can be difficult to move between LOBs unless you are great at networking. Certain LOBs are almost treated like stepchildren to their higher grossing siblings (e.g. IB, CB, AWM)

    Former Employee - IT Manager in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - IT Manager in Chicago, IL

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Supported going back to school and provided ample growth opportunities. Promoted twice, travel internationally is possible. IT is a utility here not a revenue generator so be ready for businesses to treat you like staff and not experts.

    Cons

    Decision making is geographically centered on New York where the employees are not the leaders they just happen to have seniority and are physically located to the executives. New York centric mentality as well as the American mentality that we push decisions down to all other country leaders. Not a truly global mindset here. Approaching 250,000 employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Meritocracy - make it happen. Diversity is a joke and inclusion is required. Very much an old boys network. Firm needs to stop being complacent with being the leading back and put focus on innovation to be a true leader in the industry.
