    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

    Never Again

    Business Support Manager (Former Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    ProsGreat Teammates
    Access to Learning and Development Resources
    Holidays

    Cons"Family-Friendly" is just for PR. There is no time for family when you are doing the work of 3-4 people and pulling regular all-nighters.

    All you will ever be there is a name on a row of an enormous spreadsheet that is constantly being examined and trimmed. When you are up for trimming, none of your 80-hour weeks will matter.

    The overwhelming culture is "eat or be eaten," made alarmingly worse by the rapid spread of privileged young MBAs who know nothing but the classroom, daddy's money, and how to Instagram themselves ad nauseam while out on the town.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpdate your resumes.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Consbeaurocratic atmosphere, does not manage out low performing managers

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the managers that are causing your talent to look elsewhere

    Great company, great name to have on your resume.

    Finance Manager (Former Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    ProsI worked at Bank of America for seven years and it was the best role I've had throughout my 20 year career in Finance. Management has done a great job in their steady climb out of the financial crisis of 2008.

    ConsCompensation can be lower than some banks due to the easy availability of lower cost location employees (Charlotte, NC). BOA has a "genteel" culture that can make getting direct honest feedback at times difficult.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing in terms of reducing risks and staffing up regulatory compliance teams.

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

    Responsible for 2 COO, 4 Directs and 177 FTE's. Responsible for calendar scheduling, travel arrangements & expenses.

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    ProsMost interesting thing about my position was the ability to work with o workers in other countries (India, Costa Rica and Mexico). I especially enjoyed taking on the challenges of the calendaring and travel scheduling as well event planning for team and community events.

    ConsAs administrative assistant in BOFA it is hard to move up since they removed the position of Business Lead I & II within this position you would be able to learn more of the business and prove your analytical and communication skills.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI believe in open door policy and clear direction. Also, management could when possible suggest placing an admin to assist in a project that would advance her skills and the team goals.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good working hours, terrible environment...

    Assistant Vice President - Sourcing Lead (Former Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    ProsLarge financial institution exp., good benefits, flexible work hours, many great opportunities to build a fantastic resume and get extensive background in different business groups.

    ConsLeadership disorganized and unqualified, compensation not competitive, negative work environment, constant fear of losing job, favoritism is ridiculous

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership would benefit if they actually listened, heard and worked to address issues so they could be adequately resolved . Too much talking and not enough action. Would be great if people took more accountability. Crabs in a bucket mentality.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
