I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Amazing firm and resources, terrific product offerings for clients, smart hardworking people.

Cons

Accessing those resources is very tough when you join as an experienced hire. You'd better be supremely self confident, phenomenally resilient, impervious to threats and fear mongering, and very hard working and effective. You;ll get next to no feedback or guidance. The regulators are all over the firm, which has added to stress and a bad mood among employees.

Advice to Management

Put people (clients, employees) first. Put technology and systems in the service of people. The firm has grown so fast it is the other way around now.

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

    Pros

    It is a very competitive company. For the most part very good to customers

    Cons

    Upper management does not value employees. Systems are slow and go down on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to recoginze the employees you have and use the incentive plan as it was intended

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

    Pros

    The work-life balance is what you make it. The truth is that this company is full of very smart, very driven people. With that level of self-expectation it can be difficult to maintain a good work-life balance. But the opportunities are there.

    Cons

    Lot of "Type A" personalities in one organization. There can be friction at times, but on the whole, everyone works aggressively toward a common goal. If you're not accustomed to a fast paced, self driven environment, JPMorgan will catch you off guard. Everyone shows up to produce. If thats not for you, the company isn't for you.
