I enjoyed each day at work. I was able to learn many skills especially to do with the entire business lending and more so trade finance. The management was good from the top to line managers. My hardest part of the job was on convincing unwilling clients to join my bank if they had their own perceived fears. I enjoyed mostly when clients I served were satisfied and happy.
An outgoing and supportive management team
Promotions not based on merits but on whom you knew or who brought you
Supporting and working directly with foreign exchange traders where every day would be different. Work hard and play hard culture. Management were part of the trading team. Hardest part of the job was ending the day with a positive profit and loss figure. Being my first experience on a trading floor I developed good communication skills with staff and all external clients.
Regular team bonding events, free lunches.
To conduct secretarial and administration duties within the team and PA duties. Working with team management to run and organise diaries. Friendly team environment highly motivated to achieve results. When the team failed to secure new deals for safe security agreements Team satisfaction when new clients came on-board agreeing to new safe security service agreements
Taking phone calls from company pension members who are being offered the option to sacrifice inflationary increases for a one off immediate uplift in there existing pension. Ability to simplify and advise a member whether it was in their best interests to accept or decline the offer based on a regulated methodical questioning approach. Good job satisfaction as all customers welcomed an empathetic voice.
Very long hours, soul destroying, mind-numbing work. I'm a contractor, on what at the start, seemed like a good daily rate. After tax though, I'm actually earning less per hour than in my previous job, where I was working 10 hours a week less. The corporate culture is full of (expletive deleted) and the bureaucracy is unbelievable. The IT system I use for work is appallingly inefficient, frequently logging you out when you are half way through processing something. Their intranet features a load of nonsense almost everyday, and in the short time I've been there, I've had to do about ten different mandatory computer based training courses. The material for each one is on average about 60 pages long, takes about half a day to read, followed by about 10 simple questions. Of course they still expect you to do your daily work around all of that. I'm already looking for another job outside of JPM, as I would be happier working for less money, but in a nicer place. The day I am able to leave cannot come too soon. Summary - JPM is fine if you are young and malleable, but the longer you stay, the more jaded you will become.
How long have you got ? Long hours, company ethos and culture, red tape....
