The environmental setup for an application developer is a tedious process.

The leadership's commitment to developing talent and the mobility program of the firm is unmatched by any other firm. It is something that is very well-received and appreciated by the people working in the organization.

Structured insight


Uppers

The structured approach with which the program was conducted. The firm provides us with well organized training, talks and networking events that help us to understand how the pieces fit together and how the firm operates. I also feel like the firm is spending a lot of money and resources on the intern development. They take the program serious and want you to learn and understand what it is all about. Managers and colleagues are friendly and take you as a fully valued member of the team. Personally, I also really like the company culture. It is a really flat organization and you can approach peoople easily to find out more about their role and career path.


Downers

Many evenings and soemtimes even Saturdays are spent on talks and networking events, which sometimes can get too much and leaves little time for doing other things.


Advice to Potential Interns

I think the firm is most suitable to smart people that like challenges. I do believe that people with an outgoing personality have an advantage here because we have lots of networking events and it's all about knowing people and them knowing you. Internship advisors have told us several times that receiving a return offer will strongly depend on who you know and even later on in your career, new opportuinites will only arise for those known by the people in charge.


Advice to Management

I would like to receive a feedback on why I was chosen for the internship in the first place, i.e. what they liked/disliked. I am also curious to know how they decided to place me in the role that I am currently in. I think feedback is valuable even in the recruitment process and especially for people who just start of their career.

Plenty of Opportunties to Learn.


Uppers

Networking opportunities.


Downers

Could have had more sessions on specific functions rather than a general overview of the company.


Advice to Potential Interns

It is important to have an open mind. There will be plenty of opportunities to learn, provided you are willing to.


Advice to Management

Compensation can be little higher. People with prior work experience get the same pay that a fresher gets.

The best learning experience one can get during an internship.


Uppers

networking, learning , diversity, corporate exposure, inter and intra team work, sr leadership sessions,


Downers

A more specific end to end project oriented more of towards finance and more related to academic learning in MBA


Advice to Potential Interns

I think organisation culture plays a very important role which the best in Jp Morgan . The employees are very friendly and helpful at all times and you have a lot of learning in the organisation


Advice to Management

The organisation can implement a best intern award to that there is healthy competition and everyone puts in their best efforts. more of specific and live one to one class room trainings can help organisation to improve

Sparkle the Project Management in the Mysterized Banking Technology


Uppers

Communications with basically all the teams in my line of business. Based in the project management team, I need to help cooridnate with other development teams, testing teams and operations team. I can basically have a general overview of the whole business in Treasury Services Technology (Cash).


Downers

The duration should be longer. Ten weeks are not long enough for me to fully understand the whole business in my LOB. I would love to spend more time here contributing my best in my team. :)


Advice to Potential Interns

Work hard; Ask more questions; Speak more; Develop communications skills; and Enjoy. :)

Ideal corporate understanding and experience


Uppers

Networking, teamwork, organizing events and flexibility


Downers

The one thing I did not like about my internship was that I would have loved to be given the oppurtunity to work in an application development role.


Advice to Potential Interns

As an Inter, do not be afraid to reach out to people and network. People at JP Mogran are really friendly and helpful - There is no stereotyped "Corporate Hierarchy/Seniority"


Advice to Management

Have more networking events where people give career advice and have interesting stories to tell. A standard talk about each team or division can turn out to be quite dry or dull.

Yes

Time is the enemy of gaining exposure and experience. So many things I like, so little time to do them all.


Uppers

An accommodating environment, great people, great mentoring and training, very structured, good exposure to the whole organization, challenging work, emphasis on a mutually beneficial relationship


Downers

Too short, inadequate pre-internship information with regards to team and exact function.


Advice to Potential Interns

For a technologist, the bank does true technology work. Great people from varied backgrounds ensure comprehensive personality development. The firm's investment in cultivating talent is noteworthy. Location specific advantage is that it is looking to expand.


Advice to Management

Compensation is lower than competition but job prospects make up for it.


Would You Recommend

Yes
