I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Had good support and access to great research, modeling tools, and a team of hardworking and dedicated workers to give a competitive edge.

Cons

I felt at times that the smaller firms were easier to maneuver to bring innovative ideas to market with less management meetings to gain approval.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working newer technologies, teamwork is practiced for the most part, diversity is good

    Cons

    newer management not understanding systems they own, likely age discrimination, "company wide policy" not applied uniformly, people fearful for job stability

    Advice to Management

    don't sweep people out the door so readily, reduce senior level bonuses to spread to low level employees scraping by

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Room to use your vision to make an impact - project managers who do more than just process will be very successful. Diversity is valued. The company is trying to become more innovative and creative, and to encourage employees to offer suggestions. Excellent company for veterans, with a strong focus on hiring them.

    Cons

    very direct culture, often "New York" rude by midwest standards. Complex bureaucracy with lots of controls and policies requires you to learn the systems to get thing done. Expect to work more than 40 hours per week. 50 hours is common. Raises are below cost of living. You cannot afford to work for Chase for more than 5 years or you will be underpaid for your skills. Major re-orgs in top level technology leadership happening. Everything could change over the next few months, depending on how the re-orgs shake out.

    Advice to Management

    Salary/promotion is based on investment bankers who leave all the time for other firms. If you want to retain staff, you need to pay adequate raises, especially on promotions. Hiring replacements costs 150% of salary. Paying 3% to the employee would save you alot of money.
