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

    Pros

    Company has excellent technology for employees. Strongly promotes mobility. Publicly declared promotion paths.

    Cons

    You don't get a raise for taking another job in the company. You can't get promoted by applying for another job, you have to be promoted in current job.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be able to apply for and get promotions internally. If not then they will just leave to get a promotion.

    Pros

    A great team sub culture in the office I work for (San Fran) This being said, JPM is a huge company and if really depends on individual teams.

    Cons

    Company is too big to make changes. Compare to GS and MS, harder to do anything innovative because we also have consumer and commercial bank

    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

    Pros

    Good place to work, I have been lucky to work for great managers the whole time. Being a global firm International mobility is also encouraged.

    Cons

    Compensation could be more in line with the other Wall Street firms and it often feels like getting promoted is much harder for incumbents versus new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more from within, and align compensation with the street to avoid losing top performers

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

    Pros

    Really good salary. Good work conditions unless you work in operate or incident management - outages can get very hectic and tempers tend to flare up.

    Cons

    Long work weeks, regularly 50 to 60 hrs. Very clickish, more difficult to move between groups than it should be. Directors tend to take their loyal employees with them from group to group. More who you know than what you know.

    Advice to Management

    Be open minded about moving VP's to Director status with more frequency. Some directors were definitely out of touch with new technology and new business cultures.
