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

Pros

They are stable, predictable, with good benefits. TThey have a lot of money invested in technology and training. There are a number of opportunities to move up in the co.

Cons

You feel like a number. There is never any excitement. Their system for client distribution is unfair.

Advice to Management

Look into why top performing bankers are top performing and see the reasons. If they are naturally gifted, have them coach. If the ciient assignments are lop-sided, fix it.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time

    Pros

    Competitive salaries. Resume builder. Work from home available (if your manage approves it -- rare though).

    Cons

    Heavy politics. Lots of unnecessary red tape to navigate through in order to get things done (due to people justifying their existence). Senior managers are clueless as to what really happens in the trenches. Mid-management is typically a "boys club" and very hard to break into unless you know someone (hard work will not pay off otherwise). Promotions are also political as management wants to limit the compensation pool. Not very "senior" friendly -- once you reach a certain age it's amazing how quickly they try to get rid of you. Don't think you will be working here for 30 years, unless you have managed to dodge the hurdles of management changes and you are able to maintain your network with senior management. There is no loyalty here; unlike the JP Morgan of old --this IS Chase now (cut throat, budget-oriented environment all to make a buck at your expense).

    Advice to Management

    If you really want to improve overall quality -- senior managers should have annual, give-and-take discussions with lower-level employees to find out EXACTLY how their departments are running. DON'T just rely on input from middle management. Most middle managers here are not respected by their employees for good reasons -- you should find out what those reasons are.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been impressed with the level of access interns are given to senior management - senior managers seem happy to spend time with interns and answer questions. The company's mentor programs are excellent, and the company provides many ways to network with colleagues and get involved through its business resource groups.

    Cons

    Long work hours are sometimes required of full-time analysts.
