    I have been working at J.P. Morgan as an intern for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was a technology analyst intern this past summer. From the start of the program, I really liked the fact that they had me working on a project that was actually used in my team's product. Most people were great to work with and were very helpful throughout the summer. Overall, this was a great opportunity!

    Cons

    In a firm as large as JPMC, getting access to certain tools/software can take time. But, this is probably the case at any company just as large.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! Please continue the senior speaker events throughout the summer. They really provided most interns insight into what their careers can progress into and other areas of business at JPMC. Also, a lot of these speakers, most notably Jamie Dimon, were very inspirational.

    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.
