    I have been working at J.P. Morgan

    Pros

    The company has positions all over the globe so it is possible to move and still keep a job within the company.

    Cons

    They continue to block bankers from getting any increase in salary and lower the incentive possibilities.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay. Good work/life balance.
    Internal mobility supported
    Decent benefits from what I can tell compared to others.
    Good retirement matching plan.

    Cons

    J.P. Morgan is a very, very large firm - unsurprisingly, there is big firm bureaucracy.
    Sometimes it seems the balance between documenting processes and doing other "busy work" kind of paperwork occupies an inordinate amount of time compared to getting to the core tasks at hand.

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    People are friendly and open
    A lot of possibilities to grow as a developer

    Cons

    JP Morgan is a bank, it has change management and infrastructure deployment systems which are geared towards fulfilling audit requirements. Continuous delivery is difficult.
    It is easier to create software that rocks here than to make sure that this software actually gets deployed to production

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the red tape while preserving the controls
    Attract good people in infrastructure services to make the work life of all employees more interesting and your operations more streamlined
    Reduce the sycophancy and encourage people to produce constructive criticisms

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, great offices and environment. awesome pay too!

    Cons

    Not the biggest challenge, training was non-existent and was hard to pickup things on my own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only assign interns to managers who want to actually manage. most of my work and conversations is given through a different VP.
