    I worked at J.P. Morgan (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Big company to work with

    Cons

    Transfer job between department is not ideal, if you currently are in a lower level than hiring position, even if you are qualify for that position, you won;t be able to transfer to the new position level. You have to transfer as your current level

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

    Pros

    great benefits.
    stability, if you're looking for that.

    Cons

    Some people in the office are very elitist in attitude; if you're ok working amongst that. (I guess that comes with having to chase around high net worth clients all day and evaluating people based on their net worth)
    -can be very monotonous work; will get boring quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Provided access to latest tools to assist in performing job. Adequate salaries consistent with job market. Ample time off benefits.

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

    Pros

    Corporate perks they offer are good.

    Cons

    Totally not worth the pay they offer for the job. The underpay way below market value and squeeze the work out of you. The corporate politics are endless. The upper management keeps changing and they do not have a clear vision about anything anymore.

    Pros

    Looks great on resume but that is about it.
    Do not stick around for long if you care about your wallet and career growth

    Cons

    - Almost no room for growth (if at all)
    - 2 years without a raise
    - Stagnant Bonus
    - What you know is irrelevant vs who you know
    - Office politics play a massive role
    - Outdated mainframe system, poor tech investment, poor support
    - Heavy outsourcing initiative, poor employee morale
    - Layoffs and cost cutting makes you a dispensable worker
    - Internal mobility CAN BE BLOCKED by your manager - shadiest tactic ever as it stunts your growth within and limits greatly your earnings potential.
    - Low pay vs private institutions
    - Mundane work with strict deadlines lead to a very stressful environment
    - HORRIBLE job training - You are pretty much doing a lot self training
    - High turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the talent that wants to be there and they won't leave

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

    Pros

    There's many different opportunities. It's easy to move up since there is so much turnover. Generally the people who work here are a step above those at other financial services companies I've worked for.

    Cons

    Raises and bonuses are terrible. They don't care how many hours you put in so long as you aren't paid hourly, the product is still acceptable and the client is still paying.

    Advice to Management

    Stop participating in this race to the bottom. Do you want to be the Walmart of financial services?

    Management needs to listen to the employees more before making policy changes that effect employees personal lives
