    I have been working at Bank of America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits are a huge asset...there is many things that are offered health, dental, eye, 401k, company match, disability...and you are also able to buy into an extra week of vacation.

    Cons

    No room for growth...pay is not amazing, and most areas do not have overtime options, or bonus structures...what you get is what you get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take pride in your associates...we work to make you look good.

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

    Pros

    I feel like they make a pro-active effort to treat customers and employees well. There are ample opportunities for education and to hone skills all provided free of charge by the company. I have heard co-workers say that BofA is more "human" than the other big banks. I feel like I can speak up to senior management and they actually listen.

    Cons

    Bank of America is an enormous institution and of course that present problems. Sometimes it feels like bank's recent history has burned us and makes us more risk averse than we should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to employees when they bring issues or opportunities to the table.

    Pros

    Benefits, pay is good that's about it

    "Leaders" are clueless and the ones that actually know are looked over or demoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge your leaders and weed out the dumb ones there are A LOT there.

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Well known, good pay, lots of growth opportunity, amazing benefits (tuition, child care, 401k match, corporate discounts for a few), competitive environment

    Cons

    The job is great as long as you have a manager who isn't emotional and a drama queen- some are detrimental to their employees growth and jealousy can be apparent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really consider if a person is a leader or just a manager when promoting- don't let people get comfortable

    Pros

    OK pay, bank holidays, lots to learn if you are interested in finance/banking/accounting. Beautiful campus in Jacksonville, FL.

    Cons

    Lots of overtime expected in production environments. Scheduling time off is tricky because the bank only allows a certain amount of associates off at the same time for all sites in your department. Many people put their requests in early for Mondays, Fridays, and days around holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider a formal mentor program to help newbies who want to advance.

    Pros

    I do like the experience I gained

    Cons

    The instability of the jobs at this company. They constantly lay off their employees, it doesn't matter if you do a good job or not

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to identify the real contributors in the company. I experienced my peers taking credit for my work to make themselves look good and get ahead
