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

    Pros

    Ability to move around and gain a greater breath of business acumen. Exposure to cutting edge technologies and work life balance add to the benefits.

    Cons

    Promotional opportunities are limited but ability to lateral is encouraged. The parking is very limited in the Polaris campus creating a culture of eating at desks for lunch since it is too difficult to leave for lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote within the company when warranted versus looking outside. While it is excellent approach to get fresh views into the company, it is a better strategy to carefully balance the new hires with internal promotions.

    Reward the people that count, do the work, put in the extra time, not the ones who do not threaten you.

    Former Employee - Associate - Quantitative Research in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Associate - Quantitative Research in New York, NY

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I was working full time in quantitative research in the NY headquarters. The group was very relaxed, incredibly smart and supporting people, inspiring boss. Work life balance was OK.

    Cons

    We (quantitave researchers) were given no real responsibility of the algorithms and models we created. Our job was basically and internal consulting to the managements. All business decisions (involving our work) were done by senior managers who had no knowledge of the advance math and engineering we were using. If you are a talented quantitative person and want to do "real work" consider joining a quant hedge fund instead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much politics, old corporate environment. Consider having younger people in senior position and foster a more creative environment.

    Great Financial Company. Good remuneration & benefits. Depending on the location, the jobs vary. In Houston, Tx, pretty much support roles for all levels of Investment Banking and Trading applications, related to Front, Middle, Back office Trading. Easy going atmosphere.

    Cons

    One would get bored doing repetitive tasks.
    Most of the classroom training are offered in India for employees there.
    But very recently, they have enhanced the training program, for online, self paced learning.
