    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The site before was lovely, they started tarmacing the parkland with concrete and cutting the trees a while ago. Not sure if the tennis courts are still there, it was difficult to beat. Regular hours. Nice coffee shop, nice restaurant, good car park, near the pool and park,good childcare benefits(5 extra days)

    Cons

    Monotonous job requiring little understanding of derivatives. Plenty of training, but it can be useless when you come to find another job, best to stick with internationally recognised (read privately funded) rather than internally recognised courses which basically mean nothing to the next employer.

    Advice to Management

    At JPM favoritism exists depending on the department, which is quite distracting and frustrating leading to bad behaviours. Difficult to settle in. It is very annoying to recruit in case you need extra staff, with them thinking they will be there next year, and then brush them off. I was given a perm job my manager knew would be deleted in 6 months so watch out. Also there was a bit more hierarchy than other departments, read excess management with a lack of real skill and efficiency, too top heavy. I literally had more managers, supervisors, team trainers and worst of all, team leaders, than colleagues - even though they were all the same standard. The staff turnover is a big drain on resources and those that stay think they are big shots just because they have been there a long time,these are the ones that are closed books and superior to speaking to you. There were also good people of course.
