of 5 stars
Pay is competitive in the industry. Health and medical benefits a plus. World class building and facilities. Business name good on the resume.
Work schedule, having had to work at night and during holidays.Bank regulations and fees not customer-centric.
One of the best companies, but not sure about the future of the industry.

JPM has an excellent balance sheet and scale. Its safety and breadth provdies ample career paths and longevity. The firm is full of strong talent who have a bias for action.
The bank is heavily regulated which means lots more red tape for employees (but probably good for society). Experience with managers and career path varies widely as it was built through a collection of acquisitions.
Frugal on travel spend and "HR" spend like training. Getting into a "program" is best if you can.
Great company culture.Company really wants you to grow and develop.Lots of networking sessions.NYC is the place to be if you want to start your finance career.
Company only cares about front office roles.Back/middle office roles are not really taken care of and often overlooked
Network as much as you can. Meet lots of people before you choose to interview or pick the firm. The team and people you are working with will make a big difference.
of 5 stars
Most colleagues are smart and fully engaged. You will work on the best deals in the market. You will be pursued by head hunters once you have the JPM stamp of approval on your CV. Pay (especially base) is excellent.
Due to the sheer size of the organisation, some of the staff are mediocre (or worse) and unengaged, and paranoia about regulation has led to a lot of red tape and box ticking.
Make sure you get into a business which will be there in a few years' time - a lot of non-core operations of banks - JPM included - will be wound down over the years. As a junior be prepared to work 18 hour days and weekends, at least for your first 5-7 years. You will learn a lot and earn a decent amount, but you will have to work very hard for it.
of 5 stars
Good management teams, training and development opportunities. Good culture. Work is challenging.
Not fairly compensated as an incumbent. Lack of advancement opportunities. Overlall okay.
Always look out for yourself. Take your career into your own hands
Internal mobility after a year. lots of resources - trainings, networking opportunities, speakers. Easy Hours.
Our development/advancement processes have become less transparent. Low ceiling - depends on team you are on.
Can be a great place to work but a lot depends on what team you are on.

They show amazing support, gratitude and appreciation for their workers.
The vacation time allowed could be better than what it currently is.
Do your best to acquire this job. You will not regret it at all. The interviewing process is very easy going but not easy.
Very good training programme Excellent managersBroad range of projects to work forExcellent overview of Ibanking products
Can be placed in Technology for the rest of the career with no outletSome Undesirable locations (Glasgow, Southampton)Transfer can be hard between places
If you are intrested in applying to technology, really demonstrate a great desire and attraction towards new technologies and how they can be applied to Ibanking technologies.
