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

    Pros

    Good people, focus on technology, definitely attempting to innovate. Lots of good perks like competitive salary, retirement plans, pension, and ability to work remote if your group is open to that.

    Cons

    Management is luck of the draw, you can easily end up in a good group with terrible leadership and it will be a dead end. Open seating (unassigned spaces) is bad if you ever want to have a private conversation or even personalize your workspace as the next day someone else can be sitting there. Political moves are everywhere so if you don't want to play that game this isn't the place for you.

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Reputable name, stock price increases & employees may purchase at discount, if you're lucky, you work with genuine and smart people

    Cons

    Constant change, loyalty to the firm is not rewarded, annual performance ratings irrelevant to compensation and incentive compensation, bad behavior is ignored for selective few in higher management positions

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and think more about employees who have been with the firm for 10+ years

    Great pay, great culture, projects tailored to your experience while giving exposure to software development life cycle.

    Cons

    Depending on your assigned manager, you may just get stuck doing Excel sheets.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was great--some of the other ones could try to utilize their interns a lot more. There was one I knew who had almost no work to do, and was stuck just playing pool and leaving early.

    Pros

    Good work life balance and easy to move around internally after 1 year

    There are too many levels of management and workers are not recognized properly for their work.

    Advice to Management
