I worked at Bank of America full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Really great HR team. Bank of America on the whole treats employees really well. Sometimes management is a bit questionable and it can be really political there but they pay well, and don't screw you over when you leave.

Cons

Personal growth: if you are good at sales they will keep you in sales even if you want to move into management.
Company values: banks are all conservative. The more personality you show the less happy management will be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care more about what the employee wants not what they are good at. Listen to employees for input for process improvements. Seek to be innovative by leading from the ground up not the reverse

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well known, good pay, lots of growth opportunity, amazing benefits (tuition, child care, 401k match, corporate discounts for a few), competitive environment

    Cons

    The job is great as long as you have a manager who isn't emotional and a drama queen- some are detrimental to their employees growth and jealousy can be apparent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really consider if a person is a leader or just a manager when promoting- don't let people get comfortable

    Pros

    Team and associates worked so hard and loyalty to the bank. Knowledge and skills developed here were great for own life and future career.

    Cons

    No work life balance in retail and no room for advancing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more one-on-ones with your retail staff. Allow recruiters to seek for internal candidates prior to external, and not just for retail postings but for corporate ones. Lots of great talent leaves bank since no potential for movement. I have seen so many recent college graduates leave because they felt BOA wouldn't give them the time of day. Also, retail associates are sometimes working 6 days a week for 4+ weeks straight. Saturday coverage is a very touchy subject within some markets. Especially when a team is short staff, which seems to happen quite a bit. There is not enough anticipatory positions or floating retail associates for when staffing goes low. As a branch manager, I was working 8 Saturdays straight and never had a day off in the middle of the week. I understand the expectation of a BCM and appreciate it, however, your motivation and drive seems to turn negative when you have no work life balance and hardly spend time with your family.
