The company culture varies depending on your location, your shift, your managers, and so on. Personally, I would say that they don't have great protections in place for workplace harassment, surprisingly lax security protocols, and a commitment to profit. Most workers at this level will start out as contractors-- you will get no benefits and few incentives to excel, as there are usually 1-3 permanent positions open for 50-60 contractors. On one shift, you might find the majority doing the bare minimum to get by, while on another, you'll find vicious competition to rise up (I worked on all three shifts). The difference is mainly due to management and the availability and visibility of permanent positions. One of the other Chase values is a "Great Team," but at this level, there are no opportunities for bonuses. There may be a small increase when you convert from a temporary contractor to a permanent worker, and they will occasionally do some workplace trivia questions (where are the emergency exits) for candy prizes, but aside from some reusable bags, there are no great monetary incentives. On some shifts, there will be cupcakes for individuals whose birthdays were the preceding month. However, due to the nature of data entry, talking a lot with coworkers while working is discouraged, particularly speaking loudly. One shift was regularly instructed not to speak to one another unless it was about work. As far as data entry goes, it is not over reliant on teamwork, aside from training.
Former Consumer and Community Banking, Business Operations Intern at JP Morgan & Chase

I would say extremely well. I've heard stories of the corporate environment being extremely cutthroat and these rumors made me very uneasy when I began my internship. However, I've found that the environment within JPMorgan Chase & Co. to be very pleasant. Many executives, including senior officials within the organization, will take time out of their busy schedules to meet with you and inform you about their role within the organization. People are always glad to network, my team within Business Operations was composed of some really cool people, including a few that I still keep in touch with, and they were all very easy to work with. Now that I have returned to the company for a second year, they have taken time out to meet with me, even though we work in different teams now, to ask for help on their projects, catch up over my first year in college, and just to hang out. I really believe that this company believes in taking care of its employees, a quality that specifically made me rejoin the industry even without a specific interest in finance itself.
