    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.

    Pros

    They work very hard to maintain diversity and do things right by their employees. Effort is valued and a lot of work goes into evaluations in an effort to make things fair, yet reward achievement and excellence. If you are considered a top performer, you will be recognized. Manager are mandated to maintain a meritocracy. If you do what you are told to do quickly, things should be fine for you.

    Great leadership from top to bottom overall.

    Cons

    Some managers aren’t great in administering the mandate that JPM has given. There is also a very strict definition of what success is based on the JPM culture. If you fall outside that definition in any way, you will be held back. So while it is a meritocracy, there are plenty of times where certain merits are ignored and not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees more holistically.

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

    Pros

    Salary, location, technology, your voice is heard

    Cons

    Employees are not seen as resources, but tools. Lack of mobility, too large, bureaucracy, it doesn't take a village to get things done, it takes a whole country. Empowerment is a thing of the past.
