Any thoughts or reviews on the Technology Analyst Program for Software Engineers for JP Morgan or other investment banks? Currently going through the interview process as a new grad and looking for any information about the program.

Side note: salary seems to be substantially lower than most new grad Software Engineering gigs, is this normal for fintech roles?

    I work with 2 TAPs on different projects. They basically do all the PM work.

      If you’re interviewing in NY Metro you’d likely be placed in Brooklyn Metrotech or Jersey City (Newport). They will let you select metro area. Team placement very hit or miss but after 1 year you can move to anything internally (given opening and hiring manager selection).

    Pretty good program. Raises and bonuses after first and second full year. Most also get promoted to associate at end of program (following Feb) which comes with raise and bumps you to 4 wks vacation. In my market and year I started at 55k in the program, ended at 73k and 8k bonus after 2.5 years.

      were you applying to the TAP program seeking a PM position or were you placed into the PM role?

      Hired as a BA (though comp in TAP is same across Job Families). Have moved positions a couple times to current role.

      I interned in SF office for a summer, great culture and engaging people - as far as tech at financial firms I think they are one of the best
