It's a high pressure environment but a lot will depend on the personality of your manager. You will have the opportunity to meet a wide variety of people but expect to put in a full workday + more in to your main job. It can be disheartening and thankless at times but the best thing to do is to learn from the experience and move on. Members of teams with managers overseas are generally depressed.

I had a challenging and interesting role during my time at JPMorgan. The nature of the role being in the engineering field I was given the opportunity to manage data centres, review technical designs and see them through construction and oversee large scale projects. I also had the opportunity to maintain and developed all JPMC critical systems infrastructure and occasional travels international and national to support location teams.
