JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Full-Stack Software Engineer

June - August 2019 • Wilmington, DE

What I liked

I got to experience a wide range of technologies and advance my critical thinking skills. I also got to broaden my professional network through meetings with employees and head of business. My manager was very helpful and had weekly meetings to make sure I was moving along nicely in the program in terms of learning new skills and getting my feet into both the business and technical side of the company.

What I wish was different

I wish my team had put in as much effort as I did without me having to push them to do their work. I wish their work ethic was on equal terms as mine. I also wish that it had not been so far, because I was commuting almost two and a half hours every day by car.

Advice

Leave your comfort zone and reach out to employees at the firm and question them about how you can set yourself a clear career path for success. Don't be afraid of asking dumb questions because they help you learn from your mistakes and avoid them in the future.

Corporate Tax Intern

May 2018 • Columbus, OH

What I liked

When I was first looking for an internship I had went to a recruiter who had advised against large companies such as JPMC stating that little experience would be gained from the work there. However, this was far from the case when working as an intern here. I was involved in a department of 10 locally in the columbus office and over 100 worldwide. I was exposed to many processes and roles. I was able to be actively involved in major processes during the tax return season. The department was close-knit and everyone was very willing to answer any and all questions I had. This role even turned into a full-time employment offer after graduation. JPMC seems to be very devoted to its employees and their career development.

What I wish was different

Nothing. I gained experience in the field and was able to build and develop a career.

Advice

Don't let the idea of a large company and the "small fish big pond" belief create hesitation about applying for an internship here. The company is dedicated to its employees and wants to create, build and maintain these professional relationships. At least in the department I am currently working in, my manager as well as other employees have been willing to answer any and all questions. as well giving meaningful assignments.

Software Engineering Intern

June - August 2019 • Houston, TX

What I liked

I really enjoyed the project I was able to work on- a full-stack web application. And it was nice that the other interns on my team and I got to decide the entire tech-stack for the project and build it from scratch. JPMC also really focuses on interns getting to speak with VPs and other people higher-up in the company.

What I wish was different

Each intern at JPMC has a VERY different experience, and even different expectations from their managers. This often makes it difficult to feel that you got something out of the internship as equally as your peers. Additionally, the company mentions to putting interests and preferences for what to work on as a high priority, but after talking to many other interns, this just doesn't seem like it happened.

Advice

Advocate for yourself. If you aren't getting work, speak up. If you aren't working on something you want to be, speak up. If you're having a bad experience, don't complain and tell others it's great. Talk to your manager and make sure that you get what YOU want from the internship.

Tax Intern

May - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I really enjoyed the corporate experience and the opportunities they gave me to learn and take initiative.

What I wish was different

I wish I had more time to progress even further and get more notable roles (such as presenting or something along those lines).

Advice

I would share that to succeed, all you need to do is be ready to work and ask good questions. If you show initiative and look for more work and harder work everyone will notice and not only respect you, but trust you with more responsibility.

Private Wealth Management Intern

May - August 2019 • Houston, TX

What I liked

I loved that we were able to fill ou calendar to our liking and request projects that we were interested in.

What I wish was different

It was a very traditional work environment, where face-time and networking really mattered and go in the way of time-management and the ability to work during business hours.

Advice

Make sure that you are getting to know people from 9-5 and getting your actual work done from 5-9pm, unless it time-sensitive. A written calendar is your best friend.

Summer Analyst

June - August 2019 • Newark, DE

What I liked

I loved the company and culture. I was in a 10 week program and during this program we had the opportunity to hear senior speakers, have networking events with other interns and employees.

What I wish was different

I fully enjoyed my experience and internship and have nothing that I would change.

Advice

With this internship, you have to be ready to learn and adapt. I was constantly learning different aspects of the business throughout the summer. You also have to be willing to speak up and talk to employees who are higher up in the company. They are all willing to speak to you but you just have to speak up and ask.

Software Engineering Intern

June - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

Great pay and location. Lots of intern events to meet people and have fun; made a lot of friends. All employees I talked to were very kind, especially my team.

What I wish was different

Career-wise, the internship was definitely lacking. The program does a poor job of assigning a mentor or someone to guide you through your work. Boss essentially dumped the project on the other intern and I (team of 2) during the first week, then was rarely around for questions/feedback. Only had one small demo the entire 10 weeks; boss was out of town our final week and never scheduled a final presentation. No code reviews or checking of work to ensure good practices and learning. Lot of red tape to get through when installing software--sometimes gated on working on features by up to a week because of this. Poor documentation all around, especially with the technologies we used. Had no one with fulltime or company experience helping us; had to ask any questions to people not a part of the project.

Advice

The internship will really be what you make of it. Even if it will not develop your technical skills too much, you can still improve in many other categories, like soft skills. Network first with other interns and be sure to have fun outside of work/on breaks. Try to get close with some team members to find technical mentors to help on your project. Email interesting people to set up meetings over lunch/coffee and make new connections. Network as much as possible!
