Good benefits, slow promotions.

Teller Operations Specialist (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsBank of American has a great benefit package. There's good internal organizational communication, and it is a respected company that works on many community initiatives.

ConsProcess of moving up can be slow and difficult if you start as a teller (regardless of experience/education), but this tends to vary greatly by region. The Pacific Northwest is notorious for hiring through word of mouth instead of through actual applicants (which means networking is vital). Once an employee begins as a teller, regardless of what education they have completed before or since then - or previous experience - they are required to go through each successive position one at a time, even when their education or experience is equivalent to management level work, which makes moving up a slow process.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore emphasis on promotions for quality of employee (skill, education, etc.) versus time with company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
