Thursday’s headlines: Employee Survey Finds JPMorgan’s investment bank best Wall Street company to work for

Apparently billion-dollar trading losses don’t make workers cranky. In a survey by the Vault of 3,500 Wall Streeters, JPMorgan Chase’s investment bank was deemed the best place to work for, according to DealBook. We'll have our take on this assessment later.

The survey ranked Wall Street firms based on quality of life (hours, comps, culture, office space, green culture, training) and overall prestige. Blackstone jumped to No. 2 from No. 24 last year, and Goldman dropped one spot to No. 3.

Vault's website breaks down survey results, including diversity ranking, where JPMorgan’s investment bank also topped all others, followed by Centerview and Houlihan Lokey.
