    - Depending on your group, you could have a great culture and working environment

    Cons

    - Bureaucratic
    - VERY political
    - Getting ahead requires playing the game and sucking up
    - Less job security recently

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage politics and bureaucracy better, you can't rely on everyone else on the street being incompetent.

    Pros

    I can not say enough about how good this company is about taking care of it's employees, it's a huge company and there are so many ways to move around within it.

    Cons

    Leadership is something else. The top down system in 100% broke. The CEO's are looking to go one way but by the time it get to the field it something else. It's seems as if local leadership does not think BM's can handle the information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees a chance to show you what he or she can do, allow them to lead the branch, and allow yourself to grow in the DM role, you did earn it now learn it stay out of the everyday life of the branch.

    Current Employee - Investment Banking Analyst in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    -Phenomenal job training through the initial structured training program, continued learning opportunities and the opportunity to work with so many other talented individuals
    -Excellent compensation
    -Great access to senior bankers
    -Given a large amount of responsibility even as an analyst

    Cons

    -Senior bankers are promoted solely based on ability to bring in revenue, not on actual leadership ability or managerial skill which tends to translate into work processes being inefficient (Maybe not specific to the firm, seems to be an issue in IB anywhere)
    -Work/life balance is nonexistent (again, generally an issue in IB at any firm)
    -Colleagues are hypercompetitive to an alarming degree

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Spend time streamlining and standardizing processes to eliminate inefficiencies in the pitch/deal process
    -Identify bankers with leadership ability early on and foster this

    It can be difficult to move between LOBs unless you are great at networking. Certain LOBs are almost treated like stepchildren to their higher grossing siblings (e.g. IB, CB, AWM)

    Pros

    Great working for a well established company with a competent CEO and solid balance sheet. Work life balance was great as well as benefits.

    Cons

    Many employees have come and gone. Sort of like a revolving door. I probably had a new manager every 10 months so it was difficult for the new manager to get to know you and your skills. This made it challenging for career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to management is to have better pay and ability to move around different departments and encourage managers to stay longer than a few months.
