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

    Pros

    Benefits: 4 weeks vacation, health benefits, matching 401K (up to 5%)

    Cons

    Leadership really does not care to take any steps to retain talent. Hence they continue to bleed talented resources. They continue to reward the "friends" of leadership, not necessarily those who are contributing the most. Hence there is a revolving door on the talent, with more to follow. Sad.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making excuses as to why your talented resources are leaving, and why you are struggling to backfill them. Start caring about how you treat and compensate your resources.

    Scale and size of environment.
    Brand name.
    You can learn a great deal about a great number of useful skills.

    Limited long term job security in the US.
    Challenge to make friends since you're constantly competing to keep your job.

    Advice to Management

    Draw the line somewhere soon regarding the number of people being fired in the US and replacements being hired in India.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They have many locations across the country with a lot of nice people. Junior and branch roles are plentiful for recent college grads.

    Cons

    They import in H1B workers by the thousands, and ship out thousands of other jobs overseas. Everything is done to save a buck, including eliminating experience and replacing with cheaper, inexperienced workers, leading to more mistakes. Typically there have been 5% layoffs at least twice a year over the last 6 years.

    Advice to Management

    Forget about putting all these look good/feel good social justice warrior groups in place and worry more about the people.

    "Working in Technology at JPMC"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Current Employee - Vice President in Jersey City, NJ
    Current Employee - Vice President in Jersey City, NJ

    Pros

    Many changes for the good going on in Tech, lots of new management from outside the firm bringing new ideas and approaches also skills relevant to new technologies (e.g. cloud). Good benefits. After many RIFs a lot of the dead wood is gone in GT.

    Cons

    Still a long way to go to catch up to other tech dependent companies; still remaining a lot of the legacy baggage from so many mergers. Never ending org changes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep killing the tail.

    Pros

    For a large company it's easy to maneuver through the bureaucracy.

    Cons

    Decisions can take long, there are far too many reorganizations.

    Pros

    The company has the resources to enable any employee with ambition to accomplish a great deal. Team atmosphere with solid collaboration across lines of business.

    Cons

    You have to ask for what you want, especially raises. Long hours. It's a global operation and you need to be available and responsive at all hours.

    Advice to Management

    Pay and HR policies are designed to attract, but NOT to retain, top talent.

    Act on the above. Take more time to bring new hires to the workforce and specific project
