    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance, excellent wellness programs, great networking opportunities.

    Cons

    Salary increases and bonuses are an issue for existing employees; new comers with less experience come in making more money. The organization is extremely bureaucratic and its a challenge to get things accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Strides have been made to open up the lines of communication - its important that the firm keeps up the momentum

    Top management is focused on lobbying Washington, while mid- and lower-management is concerned about climbing the ladder. Customer needs are very low on the priority list.

    Pros

    Great company!!
    Great CEO
    Talented folks!
    Work life balance is moderate

    Cons

    Management style: very bad in promoting internally. Long queue to get promoted...
    Wrong outdated policy:
    If they want to hire an employee, they can't , because they have policies of not to promote anyone from outside, on the other hand, they can't pay the person enough unless they promote the person. Catch 22 situation.
    How they would attract, hire or rehire talent???

    Advice to Management

    Please revise your policy . It's 2017 !!!!

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    JP Morgan is a large company making it easy to bounce from job to job. It's easy to have many careers with in this company. Benefits are also good.

    Cons

    Many terrible managers. The company preaches the importance of good fair management practices but only promotes people that lead by fear and intimidation. It's odd to see a manager stay for more than 2 years and turn over is a very large problem. Layoffs and restructuring is common place and led to my title of 18 managers in 5 years. There are pockets of good people but most are negative and disgruntled just trying to get through the day.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach

    Exposure and client contact is more productive in meeting people at
    the work place to further the the product. In Avon I met people and
    became top sales in that industry.

    Cons

    You can become isolated and non productive. You must be a people person
    and a workaholic!

    Advice to Management

    Discrimination and diversity can work hand in hand.New ideas must be encouraged
