I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Enormous scale, #1 in most business lines, ability to make a big impact. Prestigious brand that has gotten more valuable with time.

Cons

Enormous Scale - a lot of layers of hierarchy, very low churn at the top of the pyramid - hard to rise up beyond a certain level. Very political as you have to not only have the best ideas but also be the best at claiming credit for their execution.
