    My experiences working with Bank of America.

    SharePoint Site Developer (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsVery nice work environment and co-workers are all skilled professionals. Provides the ability to grow from within.

    ConsSome managers are more accessible than others, when a team member needs to communicate potential issues. Also parking uptown to access assigned work locations are expensive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConvert more contractors to FTE employees rather than re-hiring as contractors on different contracts.

    I rate Bank of America as outstanding. My disability allowed me to continue my regular life despite my injuries. I was

    Personal Banker (Former Employee) Lansing, MI

    ProsThey have very good benefits. The pay is avg and if you need time off, it's available

    ConsIf you're willing to put forth 110% effort, many promotions are available. It is the manager and yourself responsible for your training. Use appropriate channels if your not being trained.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust ensure that every branch is covered so they don't get behind. Personell should have a file of applicants they could hire for another branch but the employee wants to work at a specific branch closer to home.

    Work review

    Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO

    ProsQualified leadership, very low risk appetite, flexible working conditions, relatively good compensation package. Lots of accountability for managment of funds, schedule, and resources. Very good company to work for if you are female or a protected minority.

    ConsNot much consistency between appointing people to backfill vacancies and posting these positions. Very difficult to navigate the political structure of the organization.
