    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...

    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.

    Pros

    The company is moving toward the right direction which is customer oriented. the leadership is very supportive if there is any interest for further improvement. It provides many resources to learn and excel via learning courses and trainings and constantly is trying to implement process improvement tools in place.

    Cons

    The Salaries could be reviewed to match work loud. The changes in leadership team are constant which it cause different fundamental strategic changes. Movement of physical location is another inconvenience matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture needs to change and bring more enthusiasm. In many locations, advices to the employees regarding business attires could help with creating a professional culture and environment.
