I have been working at Bank of America Merchant Services full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
The company has a new CEO who is making smart, strategic changes to grow the company and better serve the needs of our clients. The focus is on training and preparing associates to be more consultative with clients, not just sales people. Leadership understands that for the company to succeed, it has to invest in its workforce, so training and growth opportunities are abundant. This is the kind of place where you make the job what you put into it. If you're dedicated to growing your business, you will be very successful here. In the payments industry, there is no other company that has a better business model, better partners, better strategy. There is a reason Bank of America Merchant Services is the global leader.Cons
Benefits are excellent. Work-life balance differs with different roles -- some have more than others, but the company is 50% sales people, so they own their own schedules. I think our compensation structure is on par with other companies in our industry.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep sharing the vision of the company and giving associates the authority to take more ownership. Don't assume all messaging is being cascaded from the top down, or that all managers are equally great. Provide ongoing manager training to ensure all associates have leaders who know how to develop them to their fullest potential.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
