Is JP Morgan a good company to work as SWE?

Obviously it is not FAANGU but how is it otherwise in terms of TC, WLB, leadership and job challenges?

    Stay away. Run.

    Begins with having to move all your assets to JPMC, Be put on a monitoring schema for any trading activities.

    Tech stack is dated, rotten. Culture is one that permeates fear vs positivity.

    The management is a demi-god that continues to believe it is above peasants like Dev. You'd have a better chance at meeting Trump vs meeting your VP.

      Average engineer is a peasant at JPMC, which makes it an even better experience

    Depends on:

    1) JPM or Chase
    2) front office (ie traders), infrastructure, etc and even then it's extremely team dependent

    For the most part I'd say it's chill bc you're a second class citizen there, for better or for worse. The spotlight is on the IB, traders, etc. not devs.
