A valuable experience at a leading firm, working beside many intelligent and accommodating colleagues


Uppers

The firm culture, which is both professional and friendly; the structure of the internship program, which includes nearly flawless logistics and a balance of learning and doing


Downers

Facetime is important, though all my colleagues are hardworking and stay in the office very late


Advice to Potential Interns

If you are set on finance, there is perhaps no better opportunity to join the industry than with J.P. Morgan. The internship program and the firm culture are really first-rate.

Computer software and hardware can be faster and more efficient

J.P.Morgan is the right place to be if you want to be in a finance industry


Uppers

Everyone on the floor welcomes us, makes time for us and is willing to guide us.


Downers

There are too many events with too large number of people. Often I lost chance to have lunch with two-three people on desks to attend these events with 40 interns and 1 manager.


Advice to Potential Interns

There are not that many banks where the employees are truly proud of being part of it and pay respect to the management team. J.P.Morgan is one of very few such places.

Non-stop learning: how to be a good generalist - there's no end-point, it's all about learning to perform the process better.


Uppers

- Client interaction, site visits: actual hands-on experience rather than sticking to the desk all the time - Ample opportunities to employ my writing skills: writing reports and notes that are actually then disseminated and used by clients, who actively give feedback - Globalized nature of my work: liaising with colleagues and clients all over the world from NY to London to Mumbai to Tokyo


Downers

- Medical expenses not covered when I fell unexpectedly sick and needed an urgent injection - Computer malfunctioning - Having to send out plain administrative emails for hours (but then, that's an intern's job)


Advice to Potential Interns

Know why you want what you want. Don't pick a job because you think it's glamorous or cool, there's no such appeal once you're actually in the real thing for more than a few months. Have a long-term horizon, don't be myopic - think about what's sustainable and where/who you want to be in 5, 10, 20 years' time. Don't just talk to people of your age range but be bold to talk even to the most senior of management if the opportunity arises - they give you a glimpse of what position you could be in in a few decades' time should you choose to stay at this firm. That way you can assess whether that's who you want to be when the time comes, kind of like peering into the future.
