    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ability to grow within the company, they love to promote from within. Great benefits. Associate oriented. Amazing resources to learn from.

    Cons

    Always changing procedures and expectations. Usually under staffed. Job expectations too much for the pay at the lower level of the banking center.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Stop scrimping on staff
    2) If you want stellar employees at the banking center level, you have to pay more. You can't expect CEO performance for $11 an hour.

    I worked at Bank of America full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, multiple locations all over on case once decide to try a different state, job will follow

    Cons

    Does not pay well and there is favoritism from management to certain groups of employees. Inequality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all equal, do not show more importance and praise the job of some and not the others when both bring the same quality of work. The Global Compliance Group at this bank is a one way street. No room for advancing your career if you are not among the "favorites".

    Former Contractor - Senior Recruiter in Boston, MA

    I worked at Bank of America as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    BofA really impressed me for several reasons.....even though they are a large company, they are able to move very quickly when they want to hire someone which can give them a competitive edge. Salaries and overall compensation is very competitive to the market. But the main thing that impressed me was that they are very open to moving people around within the organization and look outside the black and white box of resumes and title and instead consider special skills and strengths and potential. It's very progressive of them. Another strength is that they are very flexible about working from home as long as you are able to get the work done.

    Cons

    My biggest con was meetings! Conference calls...not a big fan. :)

    Incentive plan could be more lucrative.

    Great place!

    Pros

    Easy business. If you work hard it is very easy to get promoted. Show interest in a particular position and your manager will work on getting you there. Excellent benefits! Quarterly bonus is a plus too.

    Cons

    Working 6 days a week, conflict with what is right for customer and sales goals.

  11. Supportive, challenging, great place to develop skills

    I have been working at Bank of America

    Pros

    Career advancement, salary, global brand, skill development

    Cons

    Some positions in retail banking are micro managed. Change consultant positions have high degree of trust and teamwork.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bank managers do not need to be micro managed and resent having to provide stats 3-4 times daily.
