    I have been working at J.P. Morgan

    Pros

    Excellent if you love being enticed with false promises and the invisible dangling carrot. Beyond that, very little.

    Cons

    Teamwork is non existence nowadays, it's a dog eat dog environment.
    Managers just give lip service. Low level management just a screen for senior management who make all decisions, and have no reality of what is going on and who is doing what.
    Work life balance appalling.
    Systems are poor, and the hoops to jump through to gain access to needed applications is appalling. Systems is merely an off shore help desk, that is more content with issuing tickets than resolving issues.
    Previously prided itself as being employer of choice, now doesn't care at all about the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start recognising efforts and achievement of staff.
    Replace sub standard management with qualified managers who know what they are doing, instead of hiring and promoting puppets.

    Pros

    Mobility, opportunity and the satisfaction of working for a globally recognized brand. The company offers a very generous benefit package, the best in the industry in my opinion.

    Cons

    Some of the technology/software can use a face lift. Also sharpen up on you salary negotiation skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership can do better at communicating with front line/production employees. In many cases, your direct manager cant address concerns for you at all since it all lies in the hands of senior leadership. But hey welcome to corporate America.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The corporate culture makes for a nice working atmosphere. They tend to take care of their employees and if departments are closed or reorganized, the workers are usually placed somewhere else within the company. They do everything within their power to keep employees with the company.

    Cons

    After working in numerous departments with numerous managers over a number of years, I can say that there are no serious downsides to working at JP Morgan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should continue doing what they have been doing by providing a great working environment for any and all employees of the company.

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

    Pros

    It was a pay check. Company Values were there. But Team managers and center manager that is all I cansay.

    Cons

    The System Processor were working on one system and underwriters were working on another. The 2 system did not talk to each other. It took longer to get a loan in to closing then it took to process the hole loan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better system. And when processing is holding over 100 loans. Be there for them
