    I worked at J.P. Morgan as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I really liked my internship at JP Morgan Chase and Co. in the Philippines because of its (1) great brand name, (2) management systems, expertise and structure, and (3) professional culture. I was also fortunate to have a really great team and boss (I worked in HR!) who would really listen to my concerns yet still give me sufficient autonomy in doing my tasks. In summary, I learned a lot from my internship because they gave me real work and treated me as an adult while still guiding me as any on-the-job trainee would need.

    Cons

    Among the interns, I had the most wonderful experience so my answers here will come from what my fellow interns told me. Work satisfaction is highly dependent on the management style and communication skills of your direct boss. Of course, that's obvious yet it plays a more important role since JPMC's structure is very bureaucratic. Also, there are so many job positions/titles present in each LOB (line of business) thus making (1) it unclear who does what, where, and how many they are, and (2) severely limiting the authority and expertise each individual is able to do outside his/her defined job position. Also, while work/life balance is great during weekends (absolutely no work given), you may need to work more than the usual 9 to 5 during Mondays to Fridays. And it becomes tiring after a while.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Spent 90% of my career at the firm... I would look at the positives as:
    * Global strength
    * Promotes from within
    * Mobility opportunities

    Cons

    Title advancement.The structure of titles (Associate, VP, Executive Director, Managing Director) does not always reward the employees that are making the best impact in the upper ranks. There are certain criteria in parts of the bank and make it challenging for impact employees to make managing director.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the course this is a great organization in which to work

    I worked at J.P. Morgan as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    People... I have worked with JPM as a counterparty (along with 30 other banks) in my previous experience and JPM stands apart... As an intern, had great support.. excellent work atmosphere.. stress was on not working late.. quite surprising for an IB

    Cons

    Work could have been a bit more engaging... felt under-utilised. Also no rotation across teams made it challenging to get a perspective on the entire business

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Empowerment, competitive wages, flexibility, large corporation, great benefits, encouragement to stay healthy. Company legal trouble doesn't seem to have a direct effect on employees.

    Cons

    Only room for advancement is with a different line of business or training. If you aren't in the "click" then its likely your hard work will be overlooked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Personal growth, direct career directions in the call center environment, encourage internal hires with pay increases and not just lateral moves.
