    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong brand name on your resume. Phenomenal company resources for personal development (every morning starts with a 30 minute meeting on relevant topics relating to global markets/politics/macroeconomics). Overall great place to start your career.

    Cons

    Private Banking in general is a difficult industry to advance in as a young professional due to the high profile nature of clients. Most successful MDs started their careers in other fields of finance and grew their network before becoming Private Bankers. However, it is a great place to start your career if you are still unsure about the long term. You will build soft skills that are pertinent to just about any finance job unless it involves financial modeling....technical skills lack in this role. Additionally, another non-JPM specific con is that your experience is based entirely on your manager....

    Advice to Management

    Focus on analyst retention
