Just began a new job at JPMC, & i’m very confused. I don’t want to get fired for doing nothing but they’ve literally delegated me no tasks so far. My days consist of meet & greets and meetings that i just sit in for. I have like 5 hours each day of completely nothing. I come from a very busy company so it confused me to have so much free time. my colleagues are always trying to get me to hang in the cafe or etc and it just feels wrong &I’ve been having to schedule my own training with teammates

Work Two Jobs: I’m about to accept an offer from another Bank, could I hypothetically work at my current bank until they realize that I’m simply not working enough/ doing anything and eventually severance me? I would meet 100% of my obligations at my new shop, and just not do anything with my old one.

I don’t care about burning bridges. What are the ramifications of this? What do you think the likely hood that my new shop would ever find out. I work remotely and so I feel like I could swing it
