    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

    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.

    Former Employee - Bank Teller in Chicago, IL

    I worked at J.P. Morgan part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Part-time teller, when I worked for the company over a year ago, either worked 20 or 30 hours per week. Being part-time you still get paid vacations days, paid sick days, the option to get health, vision and dental insurance. Once you are vested with the company you have the option to get a 401K where the company matches up to 5%, a retirement plan and the option to buy stock. You even get commission type things and possible bonuses at the end of the year. Not too shabby.

    Cons

    It is a major corporation so you have a lot of rules and a lot of management above you.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It's a BIG company with great global brand recognition and marketplace leverage. Well known and admired upper management. Pretty decent pay and there are a lot of opportunities & benefits for their employees. Great little consumer perks and discounts from being an employee as well.

    Cons

    Because of the size of the company it can be a little impersonal. Plus with its numerous global locations there is always the risk that your department could be relocated out of state or out of country. When it happens it's tough to deal with. However you have to always remember that it's not personal. A company such as this is in the business of making money for its shareholders as much as it is satisfying their customers needs. Unfortunately employee salaries are just another line on the ledgers to cut down in order to increase profit margins.

    Pros

    If you are good, they are willing to move you around.
    The IB leadership has been there for a while and provides consistency.
    The hours are IB hours but not horrific.

    Cons

    Compensation is a point of improvement.
    Also the company has recently been losing the edge it had right after the crisis.
