    Sometimes it can get a little clique happy at work. Promotions less for production and more for popularity it would seem.

    Keep doing what your doing, give the employees the creative space they need to thrive

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well, it was once a great company to work for. I guess its only current savings grace is there are still a few very select jobs that pay well. But, you'll have zero life if you work in one of those jobs.

    Cons

    Benefits are total crap. There is the only once a year 401K matching - that you don't get if you leave the company any time during the year. The health insurance, which covers less and costs more every year I've worked there. Of the few times I've had a vacation, only once was I not required to work during it. Overhead is totally killing productivity. For example: it should not take $10K work of paperwork, meetings and approvals - simply to add $50 bucks worth of hard drive space to a server. There is also the fact that, even though there are numerous Americans in the local job market, whom can't find a job; I can't help noticing that nearly 70% of the staff in my building are Green Card holders. What's up with that?!

    Advice to Management

    Lets claim to be hiring American Vets, then lay them off at the first opportunity. Let's bring in more under-educated, under-experienced Green Card holders to fill critical positions - especially those jobs that manage Americans' hard earned savings. Nothing could ever go wrong with that plan. And people wonder why I work there, but don't bank there!?

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

    Pros

    Great compensation and the ability to move up, just like other top tier bulge bracket firms. Also with the name and prestige of JP Morgan have many exit oppurtunities

    Cons

    They work you hard, lose out on weekends and average about 90 hours a week. But thats all pretty standard in this industry

    Advice to Management

    More meaningful interaction with higher ups would be appreciated. Forming a connection with senior management is good for work and for the rest of our career which means we put more in at your firm

    Pros

    Very challenging, great clients, great people to work with. Company provides good benefits. Private Bank is growing very fast so there is a lot of opportunity to add to development.

    Cons

    Structure of JPMorgan Private Bank is not designed to support service role so we did not have the resources we needed to do our job which put a lot of us at risk.

    Advice to Management

    Better training and more experience is needed for the front office as well as client service associates in order to successfully serve clients.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan part-time

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Flexible schedule, Room to grow, Lots of on-going training to help keep us updated on all banking aspects. Fast-paced environment, but it really makes time fly.

    Cons

    Raises aren't great. I was there almost 5 years and one of their top performers, but I was still only making about $12/hr and this was including a 10% shift differential increase.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind that to keep good employees you must have very competitive pay especially in Lockbox.
