So with a 2.1% unemployment rate for college-educated folks, we’re going to unilaterally disarm ourselves in the talent war against our competitors to do something the vast majority of our clients don’t require? I call fake news unless you cite a source.

Whooo said that? Drug testing is stupid. Unless you’re a heroin addict, it’s only going to detect marijuana, which is used for medical purposes and is legalized for recreational use in some jurisdictions Everything else leaves your system quickly. And people should detect whether you’re a drug addict when they interview you

Thank you PWC. We needed a recruiting shot in the arm

Does JPMorgan entertain counter offers ? I have an offer of 18.5 lpa including bonus.

I am keen to join JP morgan but I want to negotiate the offered CTC. During HR discussion, HR said they'll not entertain any counter offers later
