Great management

Pros

Ive worked for many different companies and have learned to expect to meet a manager or two that are fantastic while the others are good but nothing to boast about. So far at Bank of America every manager I have had the chance to meet and talk with, at the branch and market level, have been outstanding. All the managers are motivated and believe in their teams and how they perform. They show genuine concern for their employees and their customers and always ensure that they do everything they can to make both happy. So far it is the best work environment I have ever worked in.

Cons

Although it is a great place to work it is hard to move up out of college. They don't have clearly identified positions for college graduates. The management is mor than willing to work with you for advancement but are just as lost as to where to go as a college grad or how to get there.

 Bank of America's "career development" site is extremely good and helpful but inaccessible to branch employees. You can only access the site from the Bank's computers but working at the branch doesn't allow you anytime to actually explore and use it.

    Pros

    Holidays and time off are very generous.

    Cons

    Management often checked out of day to day activities and instead focus time on creating spreadsheets for upper management. Decisions are made without consult from the employees that know the business the best. Can be terminated for small infractions even with 10+ years of experience and exceeds expectations on reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better feedback from employees. More loyalty for dedicated workers.

    Pros

    Pay is comparable to a large law firm, but few if any weekends or late nights. There are some people who have worked at Bank of America for decades and who like it. Further, your role will change frequently, and so the job you are hired for won't be the job you're doing in even a year.

    Cons

    Extremely stressful; lots and lots of politics (and so much of your time is spent fighting with people internally); uncertainty, with frequent rounds of layoffs that are not performance-based. People can win medals for performance one day and be terminated shortly afterwards. Also, few opportunities for internal advancement; promotions are rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire from within, which would build loyalty.
