Current Employee - Financial Analyst in Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at Bank of America full-time (less than an year)

Pros

*Excellent brand name to put on your resume
*Learn the fundamentals of financial analysis, credit, banking, underwriting & due diligence
*Laid-back and positive environment; not cutthroat at all
*Relatively tame hours for banking (40-50hrs/week)
*Great compensation for the hours

Cons

*Middle office position; no client-facing aspects whatsoever despite the fact that you will be underwriting credit products for some of the Bank's most ultra-high net worth individuals

*No opportunities for vertical advancement; if you want to be client-facing or in the front office, this position should be viewed solely as a launching pad

*Work can be repetitive and at times not challenging enough

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out a way to have private banking analysts interface more with the front office. Even if this means just establish greater communication with client advisors, I see no reason why this wouldn't or shouldn't be mutually advantageous.
