    Pros

    JPM encourages & supports you to challenge and improve yourself

    Cons

    JPMorgan does not reward loyalty well. To increase your salary, it is easier to leave JPM for a year and re-join on a higher salary.

    Advice to Management

    Reward loyalty

    Pros

    If you work hard you will be rewarded well.

    Cons

    Management direction seems to change like the wind, you get a big push for India offshoring, then they realise there is an over reliance and have to stop recruitment. Site strategy for teams locations frequency allows excellent staff to leave and this also stifles career opportunities. Bell curve ratings for staff stopped in name only, still the lower rated staff get riffed or are at greater risk of. Typically there are 3-4 redundancy rounds a year, this leads to massive uncertainty across the board.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large global organisation who champions internal job opportunities over external people coming in. Plenty of opportunities to work for the company in different locations. Had some fantastic big celebrity speakers which I was there. Whole office has been completely refurbished since I left so it's a nice working environment now so I've been told.

    Cons

    Ridiculously over worked for the pay. Worked very, very long hours as management did nothing to increase headcount quickly enough to deal with fluctuations in volume. I changed Manager over 10 times whilst I was there which did nothing for my personal development so I had to establish a relationship with a new manager each time a performance review was done.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to the pressure you are putting your staff under.
