JPMorgan Chase is a great starting point to grow a career in various fields. Whether you use it as a stepping stone or develop a career within Chase, it affords a reliable amount of opportunity to those willing to seek it.
Management is very engaged in working with employees in solving issues relating to their current career or their next step in that path. The company is diverse and offers many opportunities to learn new skills in various fields from technical support to financial analytics.
The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, but fast paced and result driven. The corporate level of management is very focused on data driven progress, which can leave them vulnerable to issues requiring more nuanced solutions. Sometimes, you just have to be patient before issues involving your position are solved at their pace.
Compensation is competitive at a starting rate, but the annual raises and pay bumps for advancing within individual departments does leave a little to be desired. Wages, while attractive to start, do not necessarily remain competitive commensurate with promotion. However, this simply means career planning is a must if higher pay is desired within the company.
Overall, while suffering some of the setbacks inherent to any business operating with a similar corporate structure, JPMorgan Chase provides reliable employment with an avenue to develop your professional life if you're willing to aggressively pursue it.
