    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Better compensation compared to its peer competitors in the Boston area - Client growth leading to more vertical opportunities

    Cons

    Low skill requirement: Jobs are based off of pressing buttons, and making sure the buttons were pressed quickly enough. Rigid "Finger-Pointing" culture: If said buttons were pressed incorrectly and/or not quickly enough, either you have to blame a different group or a different group blames you.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They spend a lot of money developing their tech, which made my life a lot easier. The double edged sword was their youth, while it made some interactions more pleasant and streamlined, I often dealt with employees who should have had more professional, personal, and emotional experience before working in an office.

    Cons

    Generally, employees are straight out of college or high school, which makes it difficult to delegate for a manager.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. I've seen people have an entire career here and do close to nothing.

    Cons

    JP Morgan took over our once thriving small credit card company and literally ripped it up and introduced mounds of bureaucracy , confusion and utter chaos. This place thrives in "everything is an emergency" mentality.
