Pros

To get experience right out of school. To learn how to navigate in a HUGE corporation--or--the military. As a stepping stone. Don't think these people are your friends--they're not.

Cons

It's like working for the government. It's huge, bloated, slow and wasteful. They absorb other companies like a sponge. At least they have THAT down to a science. Politics are INCREDIBLE there--never saw anything like it in over 15 yrs of working on Wall St. Too many complicated, useless systems in IT. Too much process--not enough content. That's what you get when you have 200,000 co-workers.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to how people are treated. Try to notice when people aren't happy. Do something about it. That's why you're paid the big bucks.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The name. The best reason to work for JPMorgan is for the brand name. It's also a nice resume stamp. Otherwise, pass it over!

    Cons

    Work place politics are atrocious. A lot of downsizing. Glad I lined up other opportunities and moved along before it could get worse. The analyst level feels constraining. Its' more like the position of a sales man peddling other peoples ideas. It's analytically stifling. If you are looking for somewhere where you can have impact, I suggest heading somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Give credit where credit is due. Don't use certain staff as work horses, consistently covering up the blunders of others in the office. More transparent and accountable procedures. Less pressure to break auditing rules. Or management should step up and take the brunt of the repercussions. Better HR policies are needed as well.
