I worked at Bank of America full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

There are many opportunities to move around and advance within the lower bands. Great vacation (4 weeks!). Flexibility to work from home when needed.

Cons

Very difficult to get a band 4 and then when you do, it puts a target on your back when layoffs come. Health benefits are very, very expensive. Senior executives are brought in from outside the bank and then they bring folks from their old jobs rather than promoting from within

Advice to ManagementAdvice

How do you expect to groom your next gen leaders when the focus is to cut based on band rather than on talent??

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great place to start if you want to pursue a career in retail banking, or in the banking industry. Great way to learn sales and operations, different products. Full benefits, especially for part time employees.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is tough. Very goal oriented and stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More flexibility, also allow BCM/AM/TOSS to do schedules instead of an outside person who does not know anything about the employees themselves.

    I worked at Bank of America as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay rate is good a little better than other banks. Managers are friendly and they try to give you everything you need to get the job done that you are requested to do.

    Cons

    Working as a contractor for years on and off because of the 'no more than 18 months contractor then layoff for 6 months to reset you back to another 18 month contractor', It's hard to get a full time position. They like to hire more from colleges then experienced contractors, because it saves them money. Contractors make a little more starting then a new college grad, but it's only temp and no benefits so they continue to add contractors instead of hiring them at the end of the contract period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your contractors a good chance to be part of your business, with our experience and the need you have, you should be more open to them and less on hiring new people fresh out of college who normally leave for another position. That is why you call us back because they don't have the experience you need to keep your bank running and growing smoothly. Give everyone Contractors and College Grads the same consideration for jobs and advancement, don't just think of the bottom line at the moment look at the future and how you can grow.
