Director - Compliance (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 11, 2016
AML and Transaction Surveillance was my major role and this proved to be very challenging. Getting knowledgeable and experienced AML personnel is difficult however, we addressed this effectively through extensive in-house training and guidance. Training was given to both US and Chennai outsourcing staff. The staff, both in US and Chennai were of the highest caliber. They were extremely dedicated and strove to meet (and exceed) all quality and productivity guidelines. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the sheer volume of work but the most enjoyable part is having the right people.

involved not large projects, but huge projects. I have had the opportunity to be engaged into many of those projects. Chase is a challenging place to work with many types of individuals to gleam information and wisdom from.
Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 23, 2016
They love playing the blame game, not much opportunity for growth; when there is one they give it to a candidate with no experience. Work you to death, very intense, work through lunches, hostile environments. Managers are inexperienced and unkind. Not a good place to work.
On a typical day of work there was always interaction with other departments within the bank. I learned a great deal within the investment bank industry; from managing pertinent investment banking data to dealing with clients on a daily basis. Supervision was very minimal so; only of the ongoing project status. There was a great deal of interactions with co-workers as far as validating the accuracy of the information being submitted to internal and external clients. The most difficult part of the job was training the staff from overseas, due to the fact of differences of global professional views. But in the long run, that experience became a learning curve. In conclusion, the most enjoyable part of the job was the exposure to financial instruments; whether it was within the Forex market or dealing with equity and derivatives. So, in the end I hope this can serve as a stepping stone and step forward for my career.

Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Boulevard de Centre Cormmecial – June 2, 2015
There's a tendency when you start any new job to learn the basics of whatever software program your company uses so that you can plunge directly into your job. That's fine, if you already know said system. But if you aren't familiar with how your email (or any other communication systems) work, learn them now and learn them well. It will save you tons of time from having to go back later and figure out how you actually reserve a conference room or schedule a meeting electronically with a colleague. Plus, knowing a system -- as opposed to faking it and hoping that you don't accidentally hit the wrong key -- will actually make you feel more confident and like you belong. Which is why -- on my very first day -- I sat down and took an online tutorial in Outlook 2010. I'd used Outlook before, but it was two versions ago and a lot has changed. After a couple of days, that "recurring task" was like a piece of cake.

ability to work from home and flex time. Managers are helpful. Day is packed with many things to do so time goes by quick. the only issue is with management not able to give a better understanding of what is going on in the company
great work life balance
management should pass on information to the lower level employees
