I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than a year)

Pros

New hires can get licensed.

Cons

As the industry moves to fee-based investment consulting, Merrill Edge still slams clients into front-end loaded mutual Funds.

Advice to Management

Management is thick as thieves and unable and unwilling to look objectively at their business

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and pay. I was grandfathered in for pay, but if you're coming in new, the money is NOT worth the pain you endure each and EVERYDAY

    Cons

    EVERYTHING. Entire line of business/site changes in the blink of an eye, hundreds of employees laid off at a time... they're all about work/life balance right? WRONG- schedule changes that don't work with ANYONE'S lifestyle, especially if you have a family. Gone from mortgage, which is not micro-managed, to a CALL CENTER where it's micro-managed for EVERYTHING you do (don't be a minute late to work, from break or lunch). And also be ware that customers are able to verbally abuse you until a manager is available (far and few between).

    Advice to Management

    Most employees can accept and adapt to change. But the way you all change things ABSOLUTELY SUCKS! Scheduling for long-term employees? SUCKS! The way you are rated? SUCKS! Your computer software? SUCKS! Even your buildings SUCK! Something is ALWAYS broken. For all the money you rob your customers of, you SHOULD be able to provide a little more incentive for employees or at least keep your buildings from leaking when it's drizzling outside. You rave about work/life balance, but your scheduling SUCKS especially when you are forced into a crazy schedule without request. But I'm sure none of management would understand with your 6 figure incomes and ability to work from home...

    I worked at Bank of America full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, perks, great health insurance, and decent 401K

    Cons

    No room for advancement in your job choice. Management couldnt' relate to the employee. Fast paced work environment can get stressful but that depends on the individual.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for advancement in my former line of work. Hire managers from within so they understand and relate to the work culture and the people they are managing.
