JPMC interview

Had 3 interviews with JPMC for a new team over the past couple of weeks - recruiter has been ghosting for the past week.

Is this a normal time frame? After interviews, don't they at least get back to you?

TC: 125k

Unrelated: they told me that they had hired several people from GCP and Salesforce to lead the team..how? Can JP actually match salaries that high?

    I heard that JPMC's software development is very corporate. Super slow to adopt new technologies, antiquated tech stack, and everyone is treated like a bank employee rather than someone working for a tech company; have to wear a suit everyday and always be smartly dressed, no perks such as free food, low salaries, etc.

      They are slow to adopt new tech but that’s mainly because of their scale - things can go wrong very quickly and even a 1% failure rate is still 10 million users. The suit thing isn’t there anymore and hasn’t been for a couple of years. Free food isn’t available and they do tend to underpay - however you do have higher job security there. That said, they’re aggressively working to increase pay to at least reasonably match the market, but in the end it’s very corporate. There is a big desire for change in upper management that doesn’t trickle down to day-to-day work

      It's corporate and lot of politics, but tech stack is not bad! And certainly it's business casual for most days, and no free perks except free coffee 😀

      No suits anymore for engineers, dress code is jeans and a polo/button up at most, but usually a t shirt is fine. Most managers don’t care about your dress unless it’s totally inappropriate.

    JPMC is not actually that bad. Dress code here is casual. Stack isn't brand new but everything is past few years technology wise. 5-10 year old systems are being retired. And yeah, around here they will match salaries. They have deep pockets. TC over 140 in low cost area in FL.

    That being said the bureaucracy is fucking horrible. Infrastructure is a constant struggle. Software development methodology dysfunctional at best. Many developers that have no CS background. Don't know many basics of Java let alone algos or data structures.

    It's a good place to raise a family and work a 9-5. WLB is fantastic, get heaps of vacay, great bennies and retirement, etc. But don't come here after college and stay too long, you'll pick up bad habits.

    We did hire salesforce Data Science big shot and the google cloud AI lead to the palo alto office particularly, but as always it depends a lot on the team you land. Sadly, we are in the dark age in tech, however 11B spending in tech tend to help on upskilling everything so tech is changing change is being deployed but it will take time.

    A tech company should start a bank.
    It's been done on a smaller scale like HSA's.
