I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

If you have a high drive to work, you will move up quickly, and if you network effectively, you can easily become one of the more well known employees in the site

Cons

Sometimes it seems as though management practice extreme favoritism. Lots of work goes without recognition.

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to employees doing work in roles temporarily, and imagine how they feel when they end up training someone to replace them when they have to go back to their original (lower) role

    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation.
    Good exposure to internal systems of a large bank.
    Some departments in bank build innovative products using latest technology.
    Fancy titles like AVP , VP & MD to satisfy your ego.
    Average work pressure considering the fact that most of the crucial work is executed by vendors at onsite.
    Managers heaven.Local managers have no incentive to think or work hard as everything is handled by onsite ADMs.

    Cons

    Inept middle and top management.
    Services kind of work culture is being slowly induced.Rather than focusing on ownership and quality of deliverable irrelevant aspects are being focused.(Certification,training, productivity, organizational activities etc).
    Constant re-organization within departments.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the top and middle of pyramid rather than at the bottom.Bring some accountability to managers who lack even basic skills ( business knowledge , technical knowledge and decision making ) in spite of working for a big banking captive.
