    I worked at J.P. Morgan part-time

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Flexible schedule, Room to grow, Lots of on-going training to help keep us updated on all banking aspects. Fast-paced environment, but it really makes time fly.

    Cons

    Raises aren't great. I was there almost 5 years and one of their top performers, but I was still only making about $12/hr and this was including a 10% shift differential increase.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind that to keep good employees you must have very competitive pay especially in Lockbox.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great compensation and the ability to move up, just like other top tier bulge bracket firms. Also with the name and prestige of JP Morgan have many exit oppurtunities

    Cons

    They work you hard, lose out on weekends and average about 90 hours a week. But thats all pretty standard in this industry

    Advice to Management

    More meaningful interaction with higher ups would be appreciated. Forming a connection with senior management is good for work and for the rest of our career which means we put more in at your firm
