    BOA credit card call center-Customer service and sales specialist

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Belfast, ME

    ProsThey offer very good benefits and some what comfortable working enviroment. The cubicles are small though. Very nice office building.

    ConsI have to agree with previous review. There are Inconsistencies in supervisory roles, reorganization was rampant with no apparent reasoning or goals. Opportunities for advancement were sparce even though Top Performer status was acheived regularly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize performance with incentives that are better than certificates printed from a supervisors PC. Cash incentives should not be lost due to small shortfalls of goal.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Company Had no direction. Looked for any reason to let people go.

    Credit Analyst (Current Employee) Belfast, ME

    ProsThe company has a good benefit package and allowed good time for training. They did try to make the workplace comfortable and worker friendly.

    ConsPoor Management. No direction from the top down. The company made frequent Policy changes with little notice and expected the employees to have been implementing them previous to when they were told. Didn't let employees work to there strengths. While they would ask what type of work you preferred the management would frequently do the opposite.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork with the people you hire strengths instead of making them fit into a situation that hurts the employees and your companies productivity.

    Great people to work with, but a sluggish organization when direction changes are needed

    Section Manager (Former Employee) Belfast, ME

    ProsHonestly cared about the happiness and success of their people. A great deal of attention was paid by managers to the mood of the floor and what could be done to improve the ability of the group to succeed

    ConsThe company was slow to recognize the changes needed to improve the business and would hold on to outdated approaches when past their prime. When mistakes were made, if took front line managers forever to escalate the issues to the right department and to make changes happen

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnfortunately our senior managers were more involved with the politics of the current administration (as it matched their own) then doing what was right for the bank and it's customers. We should have been fighting Dodd Frank and the Durbin amendment long before we did. It seemed that they were more concerned with supporting friends then being good business people

    Do not Work here!

    Senior Account Manager (Current Employee) Belfast, ME

    ProsVacation time when you can get the time off and benefits are not bad considering the economy.

    ConsManagement does not have a clue. Middle management is terrible and pits customers against customer service reps just to make a buck! It is horrible telling a customer you can't waive fee's when it is apparent it is the banks fault. And lower managers are just stupid. No other way to put it and that is being nice.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGET A CLUE! Management is out for themselves and not the good of the bank or their customers. It is horrible. Hope you all have a good night sleep. Son you will be all out of jobs!

    If you like stress

    Customer Marketing (Former Employee) Belfast, ME

    ProsManagement all on the same sheet of music as far as changes go. They all say the same things about guidance from above and do their best to implement it.

    ConsCranky customers, changes to what is required without any consideration of economic stress or the type of calls received in a given period of time. Static requirements for sales with reduced incentive plans and favoritism among team managers are what you should expect.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhy do you terminate people who are in the top 10-15% in overall sales because of a "Failure" to sell one product which was arbitrarily created from a standard product. (It may end up as more profitable) I guess paying salary and training expenses is a better choice than keeping current employees. Of the 40 people who started with me, there are 3 left less than 2 years later. That attrition is mostly due to termination or quitting because of stress and abuse.

    Associate Semi-Satisfied...but there is a lot of work to do.

    Change Consultant (Current Employee) Belfast, ME

    ProsTime off is fair. They try to find ways to increase associate satisfaction.

    ConsCompensation is not consistent across band levels.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHelp find a way to allow associates to balance work and family better, especially for those associates that work in technology. Don't rely primarily on contractors. Use the talent that is already in the bank.
