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

    Pros

    I loved working at BOA! BOA was vary face paced and the employees were a great joy to work with. You had to be very detailed ordinated and able to work under a lot of stress. At BOA you could learn lots of other responsibilities if you were willing to step forward and take charge in learning. I loved being able to learn new things and doing several daily tasks that weren't just in my job description. If you showed that you were willing to be a leader and learn different things there was opportunity to grow within the company. Best place I were worked!!

    Cons

    Only cons were having to sell produces while working in the drive-thru window a lone and having to meet a referral quota.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We had a great manager!! If we meet our quota we got a bonus and management was very understanding about having to leave early if we had children or other personal appointments. Management was always willing to help everyone succeed in training and meeting our personal quotas.

    I worked at Bank of America full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Started as 20HR teller, full-time 30. Vault, then Senior Teller. I left for about a year so I can pursue real estate. I then returned back home (BOFA) and was almost immediately promoted to TOS. I didm;t mind the pay wasn't so I great. I was part of a remarkable team.

    Cons

    The pay could be more. After Edgar left, the Banking Center went to crap, Audits were 2 while I was on leave. If you get a 2 on an audit, the BCM should be thrown out head first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it right. We did...

    I worked at Bank of America

    Pros

    Caring to their employees, especially if you show effort and initiative. The opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    My biggest challenge was the constant push to meet sales goals, especially because that is not my strongest attribute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People like to learn. I suggest teach them and don't only look at the numbers. The more you educate your employees and offer them guidance, the better they will perform. And make sure they are rewarded and feel valuable to the team.

    I worked at Bank of America as an intern

    Pros

    The program is extremely well structured and your exposure to senior management is definitely sufficient. The work is taxing but the people are great and benefits are phenomenal.

    Cons

    Work/life balance was a little tough but you are going to get that anywhere to be honest. There aren't many cons...if you work hard and can produce then you are rewarded well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job.

    I have been working at Bank of America as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are very helpful. They are on cutting edge with some technology.

    Cons

    Takes forever to get things done. Contractors are the doers. No training for Contractors and you can lose your skills fast. Processes and Procedures consume your day. Have to be a self-starter to learn everything you need to do you job as no one will train you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to train people. If you ask 10 people the same question, you will get 10 different answers because there is no training consistency.

    Be present. Know the job you're supposed to be managing.

    Pros

    You know your job and expectations. Very keen on policy and procedures and ethics.

    Cons

    Took hit with mortgage industry crisis that was felt all around. But no cons specific to my job except that it was impacted by mortgage crisis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to skip level meetings, the bigger the skip the better.
