    Current Employee - Personal Banker II

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

    Pros

    Top of the line in customer service for a large bank. Very advanced technology and the necessary security features that need to be included which is driving the banking of the future. Hours are great and allows for a well-balanced work vs. personal life. I have yet to find a branch with people that I didn't enjoy working with.

    Cons

    Can be a little overboard on some risk assessment factors. I feel that HR and some of the corporate sectors are very unwilling to understand situations from an objective standpoint which can be frustrating when trying to get answers or discuss personal concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a clearer guide for career mobility, especially with the huge shift in roles that has occurred over the last few years because it is easy to get lost in direction when a desired position that someone has been working towards just disappears. Try to be more understanding of employee concerns and offer more answers rather than just saying "that's the way it is."

    Pros

    Benefits can be good if you have a right management team

    Cons

    The company is very big and it is very easy to feel like a drop in the ocean. Management can be clueless and uncaring it's more about who you know then what you know

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop putting yourselves before your employees

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

    Pros

    It is possible to find good groups of people who are pleasant to work with

    Cons

    The company values the bureaucrat over the entrepreneur. Management only care about delivery, political calculation, hand-waving, and managing upward. It used to be a place where management cared about both delivery and good work, and developers who cared about their work and wrote excellent code are no longer valued. As a result, technology departments are mired in non-stop daily production issues, outages, and massive convoluted codebases that nobody really understands any more.

    No vision, no transparency, good luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Radical shift in cultural values is needed (but impossible).

    Worked at 1111 Polaris Parkway. Very nice facility and convenient. Benefits and pay were good. There are opportunities to move around as well as being promoted internally.

    Cons

    Very large corporate setting which comes with the normal "corporate politics". Lack of synergy between various departments.
