    Pros

    If you are looking for a complete experience on investment banking you have to be in a global player like JPMorgan and only very few are available in the market.

    being a big company you have to be ready to efficiently face and manage a big structure and internal bureaucracy

    If you want to succeed you have to create your internal 'network' of reference persons.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great name on your CV. It will take you further than you think.
    Very talented junior and mid level staff.

    Cons

    Career mobility hindered by popularity of your department.
    Many senior managers are clueless paper shufflers.

    Advice to Management

    It has been shown that business knowledge and IT knowledge are not mutually exclusive skills to managing people. Maybe train your senior managers.
    Senior managers (directors) seem to pride themselves for being "in the know" yet they have knowledge of NOTHING. Scary to think how the firm gets by.
    Obviously my experience it related to change / project management.
