I have been working at Chase full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Decent health insurance. Brand recognition. Good job if you don't need to support a family or have a low cost of living.

Cons

Poor pay structure. Large responsibilities for little pay. Micromanaged. It's difficult to find something positive to say about an employer when the board of directors has just given the CEO a 77% raise when the employees just took a pay cut! My Branch Manager (BM) had favorites and if you didn't kiss up enough you would work several Saturdays in a row not be allowed to go to lunch until very late in the afternoon. Made it a very hostile work environment. HR was non-responsive and when the District Manager came out to talk to a sampling of employees the BM retaliated! Just a horrible experience all around! The uniforms are very expensive and Chase does not offer any help with clothing expense for something you can only wear to work there, unless you're a teller.

Advice to Management

Acknowledge the personnel on the front lines with the customers. Support the employees more and don't tell employees they're getting a pay cut because the company settle law suits and then give management big raises. There's not enough vodka in the kool-aid to make that make any sense!

    I have been working at Chase full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Incentive plan seems to be much more lucrative than other large financial institutions, start with 2-3 weeks vacation, 40 hour weeks, invest heavily in their employees training

    Cons

    Base salary is a little disappointing, incentive payouts vary greatly based on branch location, ever changing regulations and procedures (not really the banks fault though)
