I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time

Pros

With such a large company you don't have to worry much about job security and there are many opportunities for career advancement. There is also a good amount of work-life balance, at least in the IT line of business. As far as perks, there are a number of benefits that you can choose to take advantage of.

Cons

Boring at times. There is way too much bureaucracy. The compensation could be better considering that this is a rather large financial institution but it is not too far off industry average for this area.

Advice to Management

Adopt agile!!!
