    I worked at Bank of America

    Pros

    As soon as your skills aren't needed you get the RIF (reduction in force) . Decent pay but rare bonus surprises.

    Gov't fines and legacy acquisitions are crippling the company, but it manages to survive.

    Cons

    No job stability, high anxiety and stress to deal with.
    Gov't fines are unpredictable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan to retain associates. Contractors are not the answer. Too mich time lost on. OJT.

    Pros

    I had full benefits which I needed since I am single. I loved my manager and although firm but very fair.

    Cons

    after medical leave there was a new manager that for some reason took an instant dislike to me and for whatever reason in the three months she was there many people left our center.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    find out facts before you make certain people center managers. make sure they can accurately do their job.

    Current Employee - Vice President - Technology in Jacksonville, FL

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Little to no micro-management, distributed work environment, flexible work location, average salary, average benefits.

    Cons

    Bonuses have plenty of room for growth, salary could definitely improve when compared to other banks. Health/Medical benefits are inferior to other smaller companies (i.e. Coca-Cola). You'd expect benefits at BoA to be top-notch (i.e.: no co-pay, very low deductibles), not the case.

    Employee performance reviews allow very little room for feedback from managers. Their only choices are 1) employee sucks, 2) employee is OK and 3) employee is awesome. Nothing in between can be reported.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-vamp and overhaul medical benefits package and bonus criteria to be more aligned to bank's size and ROI.

    Increase options to evaluate employees that would be more indicative of their performance so as to render a clearer criteria for bonuses, salary increase, etc.
