Bank of America tries hard to strive for Work/Life Balance and provide growth opportunities but has fallen short.

I worked at Bank of America full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Coworkers. Fast Paced. No 2 days are alike.

Cons

Lack of training, work/life balance issue, poor upper management, too much red tape and hurdles to jump over for approvals and funding. Not on the cutting edge of technology.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Merrill Lynch work ethic has taken over since the acquisition and I don't mean that as a positive comment. Work/Life balance got thrown out the window. Too much emphasis on face time and not enough and actual results and accomplishments. Need a housecleaning across the top 3-4 levels of management to bring in new ideas and current technology.

    Former Employee - Credit Analyst in Hunt Valley, MD

    I worked at Bank of America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Bank of America was a great experience, a good mixture of reasonable and unreasonable lower level managers, good chances to prove yourself, easy hours(relatively speaking). Large amount of politics in a low level office. Fellow associates were fairly nice in general.

    Cons

    Weak salary, competitive, but not collegiate about it, everyone is a number. Doing the right thing was not as important as doing the best thing for you, your manager, and your department. Often felt pressure to do activities that weren't in the right spirit of judgmentally fair action. Upper management treated the office more like a pen within which people had to be managed, and people embraced it. People lacked professionalism in many cases, and lying/irregular behavior was common. High turnover.
