    Pros

    Big company
    great reputation
    great marketing
    good benefits
    lots of locations

    Cons

    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

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.

    Cons

    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.
