    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time

    Pros

    JP Morgan is one of the best places to work. They have top notch experts in every level of the organization and Jamie Dimon is one of the best CEOs in the industry.

    Cons

    The company is very large and moving within the firm can be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management: I think JPMorgan need to work with Delaware government to provide better transportation option to people who commute from Philadelphia. Septa comes to 30th Market St Wilmington, but the transportation to DTC is horrible.

    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.
