Other Employee Reviews for Bank of America Securities

  1. Merrill Lynch seems to be running the merger and may be the ruin of BofA if you don't watch out.

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Research Department Professional in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Research Department Professional in New York, NY
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Smaller operation within a huge corporation. BofA gave the Global Corporate & Investment Bank shelter.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy of a huge corporation when it came to benefits, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so enamored with growth. You overdid on the Countrywide and especially the Merrill Lynch acquisitions.


  2. BAS - Not a bad place to work...

    Former Employee - Investment Banking Associate in Dallas, TX

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    BAS tends to be one of the more stable investment banks. They may not pay the highest on the street, but they also do not get hit as hard during the downturns.

    Cons

    Working for an investment bank tied to a commercial bank (in the pre-fallout era) did mean that you had to put up with some commercial banking PR garbage that was unnecessary. Stuff like corporate donations to various charities, training that was a waste of time for investment banking personell...etc. There were a few instances in 2007 of groups that received zero bonuses for the year, although this was laregly in groups that were MBS/ABS related.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management has done an acceptable job in managing the investment bank, but they should let BAS have more autonomy from BAC.
