    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    JPMC encourages advancement and employee personal improvement.

    Cons

    Off-shore resourcing has created a large loss of jobs in the United States.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that those who have lost jobs due to off-shoring have no money to place back into your bank. You may be saving money on employees, but you also get what you pay for. Experience levels of the off-shore personnel I have working with was, in some cases, non-existent.


  2. Inconsistent Message

    I worked at J.P. Morgan as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The technical writing team had a lot of freedom, and we were well equipped to work remotely. Our direct manager had the technical background to support our team and was an enthusiastic and caring supervisor.

    Cons

    Management above our supervisor was disengaged at best, and often downright inept. Although it was common knowledge in December that the site was being closed in June, our management never discussed this with us. We were constantly being told how important our work was, yet we were never treated as though we had value.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your people - yes, even the contractors. And you might try listening to us as well. We were so invested in the work, and so disappointed in the sketchy rollout and the failure to provide any robust evergreen process.

    Pros

    There are a lot of compensation benefits such as help in housing, medical, paid trips and so on. There are a lot of amazing people too and if you can identify them and form a network, your future will be very promising

    Cons

    bearsterns people helping their own kin political Too much employees Too little synergy Control systems are not effective Managers too focused on doing their own work meaningless 5AM meetings and bs status reports

    Advice to Management

    The managers are too focused on just trying to get the work done and ignored other things such as the employees supporting them. Managers should not lose sight of the people around him are important as well.

    Pros

    The hours were great and enjoyed every weekend off.

    Cons

    Management was less than professional. If there were any issues or questions, you were made to feel dumb

    Advice to Management

    Take time with training employees. Be more understanding. Make it a place where you want to come to everyday
