    Great company to work for. if not for the layoff i would still want to work there

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosgreat career opportunity and advancement . benefits are great and HR is for the employees. they were not quick to layoff, the company will move you around before they lay you off.

    Consbe ready for change....there was a saying internally that the "C" in Chase stands for change....could be daily weekly monthly....throws you off.

    Advice to Senior Managementplease train your managers to be managers....some come in micro managing making life very difficult

    Not one of my favorite places

    Operations Specialist (Former Employee) Jacksonville, FL

    ProsLarge organization, various lines of business that could provide opportunities for movement.

    Very smart people don't always make very smart leaders....

    Executive Director (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe firm has demonstrated thought leadership across all facets of the financial services sector - ranging from the calm reasoning of Jamie Dimon during the financial crisis, to the VP's and ED's providing daily leadership in industry organizations, committees and discussion panels.

    Cons- Despite the mantra from the CEO that the employees are the most important asset of the bank, that is not the reality in the bank. There is a pervasive culture of fear.
    - Strategic programs / tactical resourcing.
    - Incredible amount of time and effort expended by MD's managing up the chain.
    - Failure to deliver at the MD level is often rewarded with promotion.

    Advice to Senior Management- A large part of incentive compensation for MD's should be based on the employee satisfaction rating for his/her group.
    - You have the vision to fund strategic projects; have the business sense to staff them with qualified resources, not co-opted subject matter experts.
