    JPMorgan Chase Bank is a highly competitive, fast pace and professional working environment.

    ProsSenior management does a good job sharing the future direction and challenges of the business.
    Cross training between departments has helped to break down silos and improve overall bank performance.

    The experience at JP Morgan was great, great company to work for with excellent benefits.

    Senior Retail Closer, Modification Specialist, (Former Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    ProsCompany offers in house transfers, you have to be flexible to work for JP Morgan Chase.

    ConsSometimes your position may change so therefore you must be flexible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTime off policies may need to be amended. I don't understand how a person can have a time off balance but then if you call in sick the employee receives an occurrence.

    Great company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat people, great work envronment. Promotes work-life balance. I'd like to think I was able to advance my career with them.

    ConsOther companies now attact their talent by offering better compensation that they are unable to match. I've seen it in my team several times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your best and employees by rewarding them with better opportunities and competitive pay. Promote leaders from within instead of hiring from outside JPMC.

    Overall positive but it seems there are barricades to advancement

    Private Client Banker (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsI enjoy my uncapped commission, team based sales approach, differentiated product offering, and work life balance. For most career paths there are many ways to advance and many opportunities.

    ConsAs a Private Client Banker my options for advancement are limited. I work through Chase Private Client and seemingly have nowhere else to go. J.P. Morgan seems to blacklist employees from the Chase side of the firm and the Private Client Advisor jobs tend to be filled externally by experienced advisors who can bring in outside books.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a better career path for Private Client Bankers to progress into advisory roles or into JPM.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsThey are aware they are a technology company

    ConsDistributed responsibilities makes getting a hold of the correct support team difficult.

    Use performance to determine layoffs, not pay scales.

    Enterprise Level Experience.
