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

    VERY flexible on work hours and working from home, even as a contractor

    So big the company gets in it's own way. You'll see that in any enterprise though.

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, monthly reimbursement for childcare(up to $240.00 per child),some good people to establish good relationships.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement depend on rubbing shoulders with the right people instead of relying on good performance. I been fortunate to have great managers but many others cant say the same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of favoritism.
