    My experiences working with Bank of America.

    SharePoint Site Developer (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    Better than average, but bureaucracy and job security can be a challenge

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsBetter pay than smaller companies for most professional positions. Supportive environment in majority of the company for women, minorities, and LGBT.

    The 'highs' outweigh the 'lows'

    Change Manager (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsWork-life balance was great. Many opportunities to work from home. Not sure if that's still the case. Compensation, benefits, and bank holidays were phenomenal.

    ConsChange takes forever in a big institution. Nothing is ever quick, except of course, layoffs!

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove the BRAND by starting with your employees. Regaining national trust will take some time after a myriad of unfortunate mortgage dealings, lawsuit settlements and bad press.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The good, the bad and the ugly...

    Assistant Vice President (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    Proscompetitive salary and good benefits. I learned a lot of valuable technical skills as well as protocols and processes.

    ConsOffice politics are brutal. While they promote the idea of work-life balance, they do not practice it. The cubicle size continues to get smaller - it's hard to concentrate in an environment when you can hear every conversation around you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou lead by example, so try to set a good example. Pay more attention to work-life balance issues. Learn to LISTEN to you dr.'s.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
