Name recognition, industry experience, great benefits, competent teammates.
Not much to say negatively about the company, other than salary could be a little higher.

JPM is a vast institution which provides for many development/exposure opportunities depending on your LOB
Compensation will be substantially below market. It is common wisdom to leave and come back if you want any meaningful increase Akin to working at the Post Office at times. Quite bureaucratic and many levels of management. It can be difficult to advance or stretch given how roles are designed to be limited in scope (especially at the lower level)
- 5.0Aug 20, 2023Trade Processing SpecialistCurrent Employee, more than 1 yearNewark, DE
In addition to 4 weeks of PTO, you also get sick days, personal days, Maternal/paternity leave, unpaid absence, days to volunteer. Great programs to treat your mental health (the first 4-6 visits are covered) and tuition towards a college degree from one of their preselected online universities.
Training can be either extremely slow or hectic and uncomfortable since you have to shadow others while they do their heavy workload (and not many people like to train others). Tons of work hours, constantly dragging unfinished tasks to your next day, tedious to review why a deal hasn’t been sent while the clock keeps ticking causing you to miss a cutoff/deadline. Not enough helping hands. It is also very hard to move from within the company, you have to know your network of people.

Glassdoor is often criticized as one of the worst job sites on the web due to several reasons. First, its user-generated content can be unreliable, as disgruntled employees may post biased, negative reviews that don't reflect the overall workplace experience. Second, job listings on Glassdoor are often outdated or misleading, causing frustration for job seekers. Additionally, the platform's user interface can be clunky and hard to navigate, making it challenging to find relevant job opportunities. Lastly, Glassdoor's premium features can be expensive and don't always provide sufficient value. All these factors combined make Glassdoor a less favorable option for job seekers compared to more reliable alternatives.
here are several reasons why you might want to think twice before writing a review on Glassdoor: Privacy Concerns: When you write a review on Glassdoor, you might disclose personal details about your work experience and employer. This information could potentially be traced back to you, which may not be in your best interest if you wish to maintain your privacy. Professional Repercussions: Negative reviews can sometimes lead to professional repercussions. If your current or former employer discovers your review, it might impact your reputation, career, or future job opportunities. Limited Objectivity: Emotional experiences, whether positive or negative, can cloud objectivity. Your perspective might not represent the entire workplace accurately, leading to potentially unfair portrayals. Legal Implications: In some cases, writing a review that contains false or defamatory statements could result in legal consequences, such as being sued for defamation. Lack of Anonymity: Despite efforts to remain anonymous, there's always a risk that your identity could be revealed, especially if your review contains specific details about your workplace. Incomplete Information: Glassdoor reviews often lack context, making it challenging for readers to fully understand the nuances of your experience. This can lead to misunderstandings and misinterpretations. If you do decide to write a review on Glassdoor, it's advisable to do so thoughtfully, objectively, and while considering the potential consequences. Weigh the benefits and risks carefully, and ensure that your review is fair, accurate, and respectful.

JPM Bankers are sharp, deeply care about the work, and genuinely want to do the best work for their clients. That being said, life as a junior can be tough.
Long hours and polar outcomes for juniors (haves and have-nots of the analyst class). MDs tend to quickly sniff out who they think is "good" and "not" -- if you fall into the "not" category your life won't be fun. The good analysts get worked far more (longer hours, gnarlier projects, etc) - but they get better bonuses and more fulfilling work.2

Lack of Empathy and willingness to help employees succeed both in and outside of work.
Cutthroat and management seems to take it out on the employees when ever they get some negative feedback also known as retaliation.

Coming up on 4 years at the company I have a few floating thoughts on what I have observed. Culture - People love working here because there is ample room to build genuine connections with others and also move around the bank (double-edged sword)
Compensation - If you are not in a front office role, technical, or client-facing role, prepare to be really underpaid for the work product and responsibility. From my personal experience, most junior-level people leave sitting pay as a big factor.1
