    Too big and heavily regulated; highly paid people stay too long and need a way to cash out; not as strong internationally; Chase division is not in every major US city

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Legendary CEO but time for real succession planning. Invest more in training. Less headcount at the corporate center.

    company is very political and a huge boys club. Management can be incompetent and still nothing is done till too much damage has been done. instead of fixing issues they just try to cover up issues and customers are the ones that suffer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    consider listening to your employees and stop covering up issues instead of fixing them . stop being a biys club look at actual talent versus who you know

    Pros

    Great exposure in all areas, Competitive Salary, Strong Benefits, Strong Growth Options throughout the overall organization. You can quickly build a solid network of professionals in many departments.

    Work-life balance can be a challenge for some, Too many layers of management create challenges with project delivery. Generally, you have to leave the bank for a couple of years and come back in order to move up (both title and salary) the org chart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within. Focus on retaining your top talent by taking care of employees - raises, promotions, and growth opportunities.
