Work experience was average compared with other large corporations.

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Plano, TX

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

ProsNot as political in the area that I worked compared to other large corporations that I have experience. Pay and benefits are average. I worked from home the 3 years I was at BoA which was a big plus. However, less than 10% of employees are allowed to work from home.

ConsWork life balance is not good, especially for salaried employees. In many cases people were not allowed to take much of the vacation that was allotted to them in HR policy, by local management. They continue to lay people off and work the rest harder to make up for lack of staff. Poor communications by many managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you really want Bank of America to be the best place to work, as you say, then you need to find a way to provide a better work life balance for your employees and allow them to take the vacation time that is provided under corporate policy and is stated in the offer letters.

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