Pros

Bank of America has good benefits
Well capitalized so has the potential to build great things

Cons

Bureaucracy slows down innovation
I found that many business people could sometimes know less than the technology staff - this was especially true in the risk organization
Wasted money on projects with bad design using purchased products that were expensive, and not needed (often < 10% of products functionality was used)
Often it was difficult for people to move up the company if they weren't in the "right" group of people

    Pros

    Supreme platform, lots of great investment support, base pay is good so as incentive. You can find connections with other boa employees if you look for outside work activities.
    You will never feel bored at work as FA. As. FA, you get the opportunity to carry a positive attitude to work and build your character through good and bad times.

    Cons

    Hurdle during first year production is easy but tough in year 2 or 3unless you are lucky to find a senior FA to team or from wealthy family. I got the bull award, exceed hurdle constantly but still not able to feel secure in pursuing my goal.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps only less than 10 percent of PMD can graduate, please spend more time with each PMD apart from spending the only hour with them before they end their journey.

  2. Benefits great- job opportunities are low

    Cons

    Going up the ladder is hard and political.

    Advice to Management

    It would be better to see a persons tenure and experience and to offer that person a job
