    I have been working at Bank of America

    Pros

    Good benifits. Good people. Exact opposite of what you hear about the bank in the press. the have been nothing but positive and trying to do the right thing for the last 5 years.

    Cons

    No job security. Lay offs have been part of the culture for the last 3 years. As the bank is shrinking it is not a stable place to work at any level. Be sure to have a contractor mentality as work is shrinking as are jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparancy around job life spands.

    Nepotism is rampant. It's who likes you not what kind of job you do. Very secretive. Managers are quite standoffish and not very helpful
