From your experience/knowledge/shit you've heard, how do they treat their people relative to other places on the street (top tier bb)?Assume I would be coming in as a juniorish vp on a flow desk. Pay? Advancement? Hours? Respect?

Pay? Advancement? Hours? Respect?It all depends on your boss and unique culture of your sub-group. JPM may treat people great in general but you could still find yourself in a bad group. Or it may be a shittiest place to work for, but your group might be the best. One guy I know in an IB was happy where he was right out of school. He got promoted to VP, changed groups to get more experience and lost his peace of mind. Same guy,different group,different state of mind.

That is always true. However, I am unwilling to get more specific, and even if I did, there would probably be nobody around who could give me any feedback. I know what I think of my prospective boss, and I'm trying to update my priors with info on the group as a whole.
