    I have been working at Bank of America part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are many pros to the job. You are working in a professional environment, so it's something that looks good on your resume. The compensation is above average which is a plus. Work-life balance is manageable. Co-workers are always fun to talk to and the hours you work aren't bad at all. As a part-time employee you are still eligible for the benefits BOA has to offer.

    Cons

    Sometimes 30 minutes isn't enough to go eat lunch somewhere or even take it to-go and bring it back to the break room to eat. There are so many things to learn to do your job well sometimes you may forget something that may affect your productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Plan more company events in order for employees to network with each other from different branches and make new connections.

    I worked at Bank of America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It has great benefits, great hours, good vacation time, overall good work life balance.

    Cons

    Too many things to do and more keeps getting added ever so often while staff down sizes. company sparing every penny, they care more about their revenue than employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very poor management in some branches, in most cases every branch you go to has different ways of doing things so you can never be to sure of knowing anything.. Though to move up the latter if no one is willing to help.

    I have been working at Bank of America part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy talking to and meeting new people. I also enjoy the benefits that come with the job like tuition, assistance the discounts on cell phone services.

    Cons

    The personal growth is minimum at best, and promotions are seldom especially for part time associates. Some performance factors include how other associates are performing as well. Plus the requirements for a teller are unrealistic at time. They expect us to refer every product to every customer even if it seems like that customer wont benefit from it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to say to management that they should care more about there tellers especially since we are the face of the company. We are the ones the customer sees and deals with daily and sometimes it seems that we go unappreciated.

    Pros

    The pay is decent and the company has a strong brand name in financial circles. There are also tons of technological resources to help employees do their jobs.

    Cons

    You are just a number and in such a big company it's really difficult to advance unless you hook yourself on to someone who'll move you up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees a clear path for advancement. A new boss every year is not a good thing for employee perfromance.
