    Pros

    Great Executive Leadership Team focused on providing First Class Business in a First Class way. It's not just a tag line. It's our mission.

    Cons

    Pay increases for those that stay with the firm are minimal. There is a definite flattening of compensation going on within our industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget to reward the loyal employees that deliver for the firm at year end.

    Pros

    Large Bank. Leader in the industry

    Cons

    Culture changing. Do not seem to care about their employees like they did in the past. HR never provides any real answers . Everything just to protect the company. More concerned with the company than the employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to start focusing on what really matters. Too much time spent checking the box on stuff instead of doing the work and making sure it is done right.

    Pros

    Broad access to various players in the markets. Will get to see many deals given this. Also get to work with the largest institutional investors. Opportunities to move around either geographically or line of business-wise, if you continue to show you can perform.

    Cons

    When I was there (left in 2010), the salary was less competitive vs. the top-notch investment banks

    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.
