4.8 of 5 stars

One of the best places to launch a career in finance
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Closing a deal and seeing it on the front page of the Wall Street Journal.


Downers

Long hours at times, but that was to be expected.


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure you're actually passionate about the industry. While it's easy to get carried away focusing on the specific tasks you're assigned i.e. building a model, putting together a chart, it's important to grasp the big picture of the analysis itself - you're providing advice to multi billion dollar companies on what may be the most important transactions of their lives.


Sample Interview Questions

Tell me about a class you did poorly in.

What are some ways a company can use excess cash?

Walk me through some ways you can value a company.

What is a company you find interesting?

Outstanding Business/Professional Development and Hands-On Training
Columbus, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The real-word, hands-on experience that you get to conduct while being an intern. The work that I was given did not make me feel like an intern doing "grunt work". I felt like a full-time employee of the company that was welcomed among my coworkers.


Downers

The mid-summer evaluations were so close to the beginning of the internship. I felt like I didn't have a chance to develop much before my evaluation. I know that having it early allows for the offer letters to come out sooner, but even if it was pushed back a week I feel that it would be helpful.


Advice to Potential Interns

I think that it would be helpful for a candidate to know that JP Morgan Chase is a rapidly growing company where work is placed in a fast-paced, quick learning environment. It is also important to be extremely professional and to have close attention to detail.


Sample Interview Questions

1. If you are just about to give a PowerPoint presentation in a meeting and you notice that there was an error, what would you do? (Not exact wording but general concept)


Would You Recommend

Yes

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Compliance at JPMC
Newark, DE | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The environment I worked in and the managers and other analysts I worked with.


Downers

For the interns not at the Morgan Christiana site, it would have been nice to be able to interact with the interns there since there were very few interns at the other offices.


Advice to Potential Interns

Research the Lines of Business before you put your preferences because they aren't necessarily clearly stated.

World class firm, first class internship.
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Excellent pre-internship training, multitude of networking opportunities across the various functional areas within the Corporate Investment Bank and a great Senior Speaker Series.


Downers

The duration of the internship was too short at 9 weeks long.


Advice to Potential Interns

Put yourself out there and use this opportunity to shine- there are infinite resources at the firm to help you showcase your strengths and improve your weaknesses.


Sample Interview Questions

Pick an industry, tell me how it's been doing for the past 10 years and how you think it will do for the next 15 years.


Advice to Management

Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Interaction with team, receptions, learning about the job, becoming a better interpreter of macroeconomic events


Downers

The hours were quite long. Some of the senior speaker events that were held were a little superfluous


Advice to Potential Interns

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Get ready to work hard but learn so much in the process.


Sample Interview Questions

Make a market on the expected value of a dice role.


Advice to Management

Everything is done very well and the internship is clearly very polished. The only thing that I would recommend improving is cutiing out some of the senior speaker events.


Would You Recommend

Yes

With an excellent experience, a full time offer is accepted
Columbus, OH | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The culture and work-life balance was fantastic. Every day was a chance to learn and do something new and interesting. All of the full-time employees were great resources who wanted to get to know me, teach and help me, and see me succeed.


Downers

On the very first day I did not have a computer yet. That is about all I can think of.


Advice to Potential Interns

JP Morgan is a very successful company that any employer would love to see on a resume. Their traning they offer is the best in the industry, so with your experiences you will have, even if you don't receive a full-time offer, you will get a great full-time offer from another outstanding company.
