I worked at Bank of America full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

It was a steady job with insurance and vacation.

Cons

1. Although sick days were allotted each year, be sure not to use them. Use of the days is counted against the employee for a year to the date of use. People are fired (not me) for using sick days.
2. Benefits package seemed to diminish over the years to lesser forms of health insurance with higher co-pays and deductibles.
3. You can climb the latter if management likes you. Otherwise, you're stuck.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop playing favorites, loosen up on the sick days, if you have a layoff, review your severance package and be a little more generous and competitive with the market, and don't allow your managers to promote only those with whom they have a friendly relationship.

    Pros

    They provide a lot of opportunities for continuing education and building skills.

    Cons

    Pay is very low and opportunities are not always based upon your experience. There is a tendency to only consider experience within the company itself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay should be in accordance with skills and job, not based upon your department. Some areas within the company pay a lot more for doing the same job. This makes it difficult to stay motivated.
