    I have been working at J.P. Morgan full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salary is better than most of the other companies.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time

    Pros

    Good salary, that's the only thing I can say as plus point, joining JP. But that too is not very much high. You can get it outside as well.

    Cons

    No flexibility at all was in my team. Make sure to clear it before joining with your hiring manager. New building is in Docklands with no public transport going near to ofc. It's a long walk to reach office which is more difficult in rain. Third, check-in checkout everyday using a tool to monitor your hours. In terms of growth, you will be dependent on US team's pity to provide good work. Everything is decided by team sitting in US, even how many leaves one can take altogether. Your local lead has no power usually to make any decisions for you. No social club. No discount coupons. Cafeteria food is good but expensive, and as this new building is on Docklands, you don't have much options as well nearby.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salaries are very competitive. Resources are good. If you need any training or support its there for you. Employees are generally treated very well.

    Cons

    None really, like many large organizations how well you do here is dependent on your boss. If you get a good boss there are no limits. If he/she is not so good it might take a while to get a promotion.

    I worked at J.P. Morgan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - New Office, Good pay but is not the best in town. Central location. - Some smart Engineers around, so you can learn a lot from them. - Tech stack is not that bad considering you will be working for a bank. Nowadays, everything is moving towards cloud, microservices architecture type of thing so they try to stay with the trend. - Their current CI/CD process is in need of a lot of improvement but it always depends on the product you're working on. I've seen worse in some other places I worked before. - They sell the place as an Innovation Tech Hub but is far from that. Things are moving slow and a lot more that can be done. However, they do some great things as well, like tech talks etc.

    Cons

    - Process driven. To introduce a new library or tech stack is quite hard but not impossible. Be ready to hit a wall when it comes to that. Remember, it is a bank and is pretty much like that in all banks. It all comes down to security, procedures, approval on top of approvals. - If you get an offer, ensure that you will check with the Hiring Manger that whatever is being promised in terms of benefits, like working from home, flexibility etc is applicable in the team you will end up working in. - Never trust the recruiter. Everything they promise to you can be overruled by the management in the US office as most of the Managers in Dublin have their direct in the US. So if the US will say "jump", he will "jump" and as a result you will have to jump as well. - Remember that this is not applicable for all Managers. Some are working for JP for a long time and they know how to handle certain things. Therefore, they have really "crucial people management skills", with lots of experience and know how to "tackle" sensitive stuff so their teams are grand but some are a "no go zone". Check the facts before going to sign up the contract.
