I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than an year)

Pros

-Training was very organized and thorough
-Had great extracurricular programs for networking and community involvement
-Competitive pay and benefits
-Lots of room for lateral movement into other areas of the company
-Overall a great company to have had on my resume to get to that next step in my career.

Cons

-Because company is so big, getting a good manager is hit or miss, much like going to a large university, some will be awesome, some not so much.
-Office environment is very corporate and traditional, bordering on impersonal and lacking human element, though if you're in banking one should expect this anyway.
-New and innovative ideas will likely go unnoticed as the company is pretty set in its ways.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just because you're in banking doesn't mean your offices need to be so darn boring looking! I would have loved to have seen a more modern, innovative, social, and open work set up in the offices as opposed to the outdated land of gray cubicles and 80's era artwork.

    Former Employee - Product Manager in Pleasanton, CA (US)

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked in a small group within JPMC, with great people
    Pay was good, and pay raises for hard workers were above average
    Company benefits and perks were above average
    Work Life Balance was good. Overall company name was well know and doing well.

    Cons

    My group never promoted within - in my 4 years there, only one of a dozen management positions was promoted within to a higher role
    Management is often more concerned with appearance than results. This trickles down to employees and often created bad attitudes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on results at the highest level. Hire people with industry experience and expertize in management roles. Hire within if possible
