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

    Pros

    Strong brand, ample training opportunities, great corporate responsibility.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, often too many obstacles to get things done. Many managers and senior leaders are just not good at what they do. Either not good at managing others or simply not good at leading. A title doesn't = effective leadership. I was blessed to have great colleagues and good managers, but that is not always the case for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Don't bite the hands that feed you. Downsizing is a reality, but often those at the helm making the decision as to whom to cut make the wrong choices. I've seen too many good people get downsized. Also, hold senior leaders and managers more accountable. Tie their compensation to how effectively they manage people and use metrics to support their success and shortcomings.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Several business lines offer a variety of opportunities to gain valuable experience across each area

    Many positions offer potential to work independently and expand your role

    The suburban location is convenient and offers easy commute

    Cons

    My experience with the company was very positive and there are no real negative aspects.
    Improved Compensation and benefits was my reason for seeking a new role

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    CEO (Jamie Dimon) is inspires trust, leads well
    People in general are human, have integrity, good colleagues, a "yes" attitude
    Brand is strong
    Comp is competitive, tho not amazing, and like all big corporates, the gap between your comp and what the market would pay starts to grow over time
    Benefits are comprehensive, tho expensive
    Flexible work arrangements make this a great place for people with families

    Cons

    Tons of regulation and onerous compliance procedures, which translates into trainings, forms and all kinds of things that fall on employees' shoulders and can be very time-consuming
    Does about as well as the usual bank in terms of bias against women and other under-represented groups in senior management positions, but could still do much better - so if you fall into one of those categories, be prepared for very slow advancement beyond mid-management level

    Advice to Management

    Hold yourself accountable to hit specific diversity targets in terms of promotion and representation at senior management levels (MD and above) in all business lines.

    Pros

    The vacation, and time off allotment is fair. Maternity leave is 90 days compared to 6 weeks.

    It's about who you know when it comes to career mobility. When positions become available the job reqs are usually because they have to be posted.

    Advice to Management

    Advance people because of talent.
