Current Employee - Senior Account Manager in Atlanta, GA
Current Employee - Senior Account Manager in Atlanta, GA

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

Pros

Awesome training system in place, BOA employees are some of the best trained in the industry.
Great benefits package and access to EAP that really work.

Cons

The management staff believes in micromanaging you. If you aren't performing in the top 95% look forward to constant emails and meetings with your supervisor. Their system for improving performance is counter productive because they spend so much time sending emails and taking you away from your job that you miss opportunities for improvement.

Zero work/life balance. They make you work 2 late nights during the weekend and 2 Saturdays a month. Forget about picking up a part time job, it won't be possible. Other activities like attending your child's after school functions may be difficult as well. They really invade your entire life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop rushing success, allow employees to get adjusted to their role, familiar with the duties of the job before pressuring them about performance only a week or two out of training.

    Former Employee - Mortgage Loan Officer Team Manager in Greensboro, NC
    Former Employee - Mortgage Loan Officer Team Manager in Greensboro, NC

    I worked at Bank of America full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and perks, very inclusive workplace,

    Cons

    Silo mentality is pervasive. Employees seem to run the show and are able to advance by getting their leaders canned. Advice and Counsel line appears to make the decisions, rather than allowing leaders to use their hearts and minds to make decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead with your head, rather than letting some person at the other end of a line tell you what to do.
