No opinion of CEO

I worked at Bank of America Securities full-time (More than a year)

Pros

*Salary and benefit package was generous,better than most other local employers. *Plenty of growth opportunity should be available in this large company, though relocation would be required. *Convenient location, easy access to major highways.

Cons

*Secretive, closed-door management style, apparently from the top down *Management team was aloof, usually behind closed doors and rarely acknowledged your presence when they walked through the office.

    Pros

    BAS gives you the same basic training as any other Investment Bank and deal flow in certain areas is very strong

    Cons

    Not being in NY can be challenging and working within the ever changing org structure can become very frustrating over time

    Advice to Management

    Advice would include better feedback and provide more stable work environment by not constantly re-organizing product areas and promote better communication across geographic regions


  2. Slow deal flow, lots of hours, but excellent learning curve.

    Pros

    BofA had an excellent investment banking analyst training course. The learning curve of an investment banking analyst cannot be beat, although this is true of almost any investment bank. Benefits and bonus seemed fair, given I was toward the top. Although deal flow was slow, the deals I did work on were also extremely educational.

    Cons

    Hours, hours, hours wasted on pitches that were never technically scheduled! Also many hours spent in the office simply because that was what was expected, but did not seem necessary.

    Advice to Management

    I do not mind working hard, but I like to see some results from the effort. I also felt there were definitely times when managers required the analyst to be at the office simply for the sake of being in the office.
