    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.

    they promote moving upwards and advancing your career. But it can be hard to get your foot in the door if you don't know someone on that team.

    Pros

    Opportunities if you seek, driven people, intelligent peers.

    Cons

    Culture, coworker interaction, scale. Below market PAY for engineers if starting your career here.

    Advice to Management

    People are your greatest asset. Recruiting for the part of the bank I was working at was incredibly difficult, yet there was not a single initiative to retain talented individuals. When you're spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on recruitment. Perhaps paying even at market rate for your engineers could help with keeping them. If a bank can't even compete in compensation, I don't see why engineers would want to work there over a technology company.

    Pros

    Chase has awesome benefits when it comes to health, paid time off and maternity leave. Definitely made it easier for me when I had my kids. Back up child care was a big help.

    Cons

    I've been with the company over 15 years so after being there over 5 years it became harder to earn a decent pay raise. There has been a few years where I didn't get a pay raise because I am considered caped out.

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect employees to be perfect or robots.
