"For those in technology, I would not recommend JPMChase as it is not the firm's bread and butter and often times technology organization is treated like second class citizens. It is a hard pill to swallow especially for those who are ambitious and looking to drive change at a larger corporation. The firm has an immense number of groups to join, internal courses and resources, but I would say they are heavily slanted to favor financial services and not technology practices. Pay is okay, but not great for technologists and in comparison to technology companies you will be paid under market value. All things combined are important things to consider when choosing your next role. JPMChase is a great firm and has cache, but it does have it downsides and many people find this out once they've accepted an offer and started within the firm and then they feel stuck. This happened to me and I would hate to hear that this would happen to another fellow FGB woman! "

"I will start by saying that people definitely have different experiences depending on the department and team they are on. Within HR, there is a lot of flexibility when it comes to hours, working from home and taking time off but some departments do not offer as much flexibility in terms of remote work (this of course will probably change with covid). You get a ton of time off (5 weeks a year and even more after 5 years) and people taking two week vacations is becoming more common. They have a great mat leave program (I think it's 13 weeks now) and have a parents concierge service to help you fill out leave paperwork and switch over benefits for the family. They also provide a free milk stork membership and pumping rooms in the corporate offices. Gender diversity was made a major priority in recruiting and I feel that there is equality in terms of treatment within the company. Things are very different right now with covid slamming the travel industry but they will bounce back eventually. "

"Working in IT is like a running treadmill. Most of the top positions are taken by white males or hires from Goldman Sachs. Unless you are a star and you get lucky to have encountered someone who appreciates your work, it is a long drawn and difficult process to be recognized let alone appreciated. This is specially true for women of color, Asian-Indian or other. Caucasian women have a lot more attention than most of the women in terms of diversity. At least there are some role models for them."

"To me, it seems there are too many people working or attempting to work, there are no clear owners of strategies, leaders are mostly managing people and not the process/team, as there is no clear owner, multiple organizations opine, but it is hard to deliver results when there are multiple teams/organizations. "

"Great benefits even for part timers, so family life is easy to balance "
"Former employees have always said that you need to leave and come back in order to get a competitive salary and that is exactly what I had to do in order to get a promotion after 3 years with great performance evaluations. I would consider another bank first. Work life balance was moderate. They have a 2 week mandatory vacation policy in the investment bank but vacation day allocations were not competitive with other banks. There were plenty of women ERG groups that promoted a better work environment but these ideas were rarely implemented. Overall, management did not treat women any differently on a day to day basis. However, bonuses were slim to none especially in operations roles. "
"Women are pidgeonholed. They will often question a woman’s competency. Many fellow male workers will often not be helpful or answer questions. The too-competitive environment leaves team spirit wanting and real collaboration lacking. Those in control vie and overtly maintain their notoriety ensuring they get the best opportunities by elbowing out women and older employees - anyone their culture will question or have negative bias towards. Not everyone there is like this, but so many are, and managers just look the other way or are afraid themselves to speak up. "

"Really use all your resources to find out as much as possible about the manager. Be diligent in networking after you arrive - your current manager might change many times so you need to be ready to move along when you encounter someone who will be a hindrance to your career because of racism/sexism."

"My time at JPMC could have been much better if management adhered to the corporate policies and initiatives. The company encouraged work/life balance - my manager was inflexible with any fluctuation in schedule except for Dr. appts. The company encouraged diversity - my manager had a reputation for firing and more harshly reviewing female analysts (regardless of performance.) I left the company when I couldn't take any more of the manager's harassment despite having reported her to Human Resources multiple times. Because of this manager I've had to choose between caring for my newborn and myself...of course I chose to take care of my child but am now dealing with the health issues I neglected."

There is also a lot of support for families with various seminars about work life balance, mea planning, eating healthy, being a single parent, etc. Depending on your role you might be too busy to attend but most are an hour so it's possible to make time. Flexibility can be great in some departments and nonexistent in others. "

"The company is on the surface making efforts to show their commitment to women in the workforce. There are good women's groups within the company that connect women of all levels and through which useful talks and events are available. However, it's still financial services, and a large majority of those in upper management positions are white men. It is hard to determine a path as a woman to the top, as there are not enough women up there."

"A lot depends on your manager with support around time off and the leave policy. You have to have a strong commitment to push through and be successful. There's no one to help you navigate it but you. The maternity leave is nice, 16 wks paid, but you're responsible for the whole year's results, so you take a hit there. There is some schedule flexibility, but most of my work is done in the office, so you may have some flexibility but if it takes 50 hrs to complete your week's tasks you can't help cutting into your parenting time. "

"Good telecommuting policy. Most managers are open to working from home as needed or setting a standard schedule to work a day or two from home every weeks. I am very pleased they just increased maternity leave to 18 weeks."
"There are a good number of women in technology but they are mostly in business analysis roles. There is the typical unconscious bias issues that come up day in and day out that one must manage. There are diversity efforts sponsored by senior managers and these efforts are action oriented programs including sponsorship, mentoring, and training."
"There are a lot of women working in the private bank, but not a lot of new, younger moms. I think this is attributable to different evaluation methods and metrics that have been put in place over the past 5 years in addition to the lack of support that younger moms get from older more established women."
"Generally I believe women are treated fairly but senior management is male-dominated and not diverse, which makes it tougher for women to "network" with them. Mid-level women don't seem to advance because of these subtle issues."
"There is a focus on the advancement of women. The company generally offers flexibility, but it can be at a manager's discretion and thus you won't necessarily be able to take additional unpaid maternity leave or work from home."
"I joined JP Morgan Chase due to their excellent maternity benefits & being listed as one of the best places for working moms. They also have a great policy for telecommuting. The team I originally joined was very supportive of my family plans & being able to telecommute. However, after I joined, the leadership on my team changed. As did their policies & stance on telecommuting. While I was pregnant, they were very good to me & the maternity benefits were very accommodating. However, once it came time to return they were not realistic about the demands of being a parent & requested too much. I also watched other mothers not being given the same opportunities as their male counterparts due to their family obligations. There are very few women in leadership roles. Those that are tend not to have children."
"Women are looked over for promotion and they mostly go to men. They interview all even though the manager knows they will not really be considered for the job opportunity. If lower level employees have an idea, they get batted down most of the time."
"I have worked here for 4 years. Employees get 3 weeks of vacation which increases to 4 weeks after 5 years of service. Maternity leave is currently 12 weeks. There is the opportunity to have flex working arrangements if you boss is open to it."
"Because JPMorgan is so large, AND a merger of many different banks with different cultures, there are great departments and some subpar. It's difficult to truly know what to expect from one group to the next. There are still plenty of men in the "good ole boy" network, but it's difficult to know that until you work with these folks."
"Women supportive all the way, after a while working here if you're good all your effort will be recognize and paid on: opportunities, new challenges, flexibility on your job as a new mom without sacrificing authority or the position you might have earn with time. They are highly interested of keeping women on manÃ¨ge meant positions therefore provide several options to make it work for moms"

"Good Maternity Leave Benefits. Large Company with lots of opportunities, just have to have the patience and contacts to navigate through it. Company does reward top performing employees, but the pay may not always match the caliber of work being done."
"I have worked here for 5 years in three different areas. IT is mainly male dominated so it wasn't uncommon to see more men in leadership roles. In the next department, senior management shuffled around so much it was difficult to get a feeling of being grounded because my job and boss was constantly changing. The last area I worked in is full of some very inappropriate and unprofessional people. Back stabbing and bullying is encouraged and promoted."
"experience depends on office location (city/state/country)"
"My job was incredibly boring and I hated it. It was a very impersonal, sterile environment. However this could have just been the department I was working in. It also wasn't a good fit for my personality or interests. Women and men seemed to be treated equally, as far as I could tell. The top manager in my department was a woman."
