    Pros

    Benefits are great & the vacation time is unlike most you would get coming in to a new company. Upon starting you receive 3 weeks of paid vacation.

    Cons

    Company is not supportive of employees. Sometimes very hard to find other opportunities within your department or within another department. Pay seems to be well below what it should be.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits across the board: pension, 401k matching, insurance etc., as well as a nice starting salary for fresh college graduates. Surprisingly laid-back culture (at least within the Technology Organization) for a Financial Services Firm. Over the past ~2 years, the culture and work environment within Tech has changed drastically. Senior management has put a lot of effort into improving quality of life and encouraging more forward thinking, which is nice to see in an industry that is typically associated with doing things by-the-book/adhering to tried-and-true processes. Remodeled work spaces, relaxed dress codes and events centered around letting technologists use their own creativity to solve business problems are a few of the many aforementioned changes. Additionally, within Technology, there are no limits as to who an employee can reach out to or schedule time with, regardless of title, position, experience, and I have not met a single person who was not willing to take time out of their day to help when it is asked for. Lots of mobility options, both between locations as well as roles.

    Cons

    Long-term career paths are not well defined/explained, including the promotion process. Feedback can be slim to none (aside from end of year review) unless you actively seek it out.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on providing feedback to employees from peers and managers

    Pros

    Diversity, benefits, great work environment.

    Cons

    HR department is awful. They never get back to you, even when you are qualified for a position.

    Advice to Management

    You have a great talent pool of contractors to bring on full time.

    Pros

    Excellent company reputation; excellent career advancement possibilities; good benefits.

    Cons

    Incentive compensation (i.e. bonus) does not meet up to standards of most financial service/banking institutions; there are no set targets or % of salary target. Your bonus is calculated as a part of your overall salary and will not exceed the top salary range for the job.

    Advice to Management

    restructure incentive compensation program.

    Cons

    When there are ready to get rid of the managers ride you hard until you break!
