    I worked at J.P. Morgan

    Pros

    Very generous benefits package for entry level management and above; 4 weeks of vacation plus personal time. Senior management at this location was very aware of the work / life balance and open to time off requests.

    Cons

    JPMorgan is an example of an organization that has gotten too big. The simplest task would take several weeks and phone calls to accomplish. IT was a perfect example, with support locations all throughout the world nothing was ever easy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, they have the insight and knowledge of how things work and should be done. I know that organization is under pressure to cut costs, but some departments should really remain in house, not outsourced.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, benefits, pay and challenging roles all make this a really great place to work.
    I have truly grown here due to the many exceptional people I have worked with and the variety of projects I have been a part of.

    Cons

    Although there are countless opportunities here, at a certain point, there seems to be no clear path for taking that next career step.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Collegial environment, friendly coworkers, unlike other investment banks I've worked at. Offers awesome experiences to navigate other areas of the bank at the same time as working during your scheduled time.

    Cons

    Large network, hard to navigate as there are multiple locations throughout the city, sometimes it is a bit political (but if you know how to network, you'll be fine)

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

    Pros

    Some of the smartest and hardest working people I've ever worked with. Expectations are high and that you can keep up in the fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Low pay despite long hours and high performance (consistently highly rated but compensation never reflected it - main driver of my departure).
    Lots of bureaucracy to deal with, sometimes impedes progress and makes decision making harder than it should be

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

    Pros

    It's a big company so there are many opportunities to try different roles and work in different areas. The benefits are good and they are big on giving you the resources to educate yourself through online courses in management and other skills.

    Cons

    In many of the departments they work you hard with some long hours. On the retail side this is especially true. Also, it is hard to move from the retail bank side to a position at corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trying to move from the retail bank to corporate needs to be easier. Also, work-life balance needs to be improved because in the branches we are struggling to cover hours with too few employees.

    Pros

    the benefits package at the company is competitive and a definite plus. The employees and atmosphere makes work more enjoyable. There are a number of development programs and training's which make it very easy to enhance your skillset.

    Cons

    easy to move laterally but difficult to move upwards, first crack not always given to internal employees. Work, depending on what you're doing, can be cumbersome. HR is slow, communication not always up to par

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career growth, saying mobility is important and standing by it.
