    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large corporation with lots of low-profile cubes to sit in

    Cons

    Little to no opportunity for advancement, with exception to management's fraternity-like mentality. No training whatsoever, outside of mandatory CBT to satisfy corp liability. Abusive management (verbal and psychological attacks against employees AND clients) is permitted to persist, despite employees and clients reporting such behavior to senior management.

    Advice to Management

    When numerous employees report verbal and psychological abuse from their direct manager, don't tell the employee to "work it out" or "discuss it directly" with the abusive person. Instead, follow the firm's so-called Code of Conduct, by taking swift and appropriate action up to and including HR involvement.

    Pros

    There are many amazing people I have the opportunity to work with here.

    Cons

    Because of the size of the company as well as its diverse roster of heavily regulated businesses, the overall pace of technological advance (both remediation and innovation) is quite slow. But it's a very stable, dependable career option. Something I would value and trade for fast paced excitement if I were 20 years older and well established in my career.

    Advice to Management

    Incredible work on fostering an inclusive, friendly, and productive culture.
