I have been working at J.P. Morgan (More than 5 years)

Pros

- pay is bad within the industry, but above par for what you do
- non-pay benefits are good (for example maternity-leaves, etc)
- people are friendly (arrogance, etc exists but less than other companies within the industry)
- company has a strong brand value

Cons

- bureaucracy and politics x 100
- changes are very slow
- people not driven to make improvements
- performance has a tendency of not getting rewarded
- skill development ignored, no investment from the firm
- mobility is half a myth
- middle management structured in my complicated way. this glorifies the management job but creates large amounts of headcount waste.
- sometimes it feels like there are more managers and MDs than the actual works (analyst/associate levels)
- high performers leave the firm first

Advice to Management

good luck, there is a lot to be done
