    Pros

    Perhaps in the past there were, none now. Will bofa want you? There might not be any reason to work for such a miserly company. They suck you dry on vacations, benifits and all they are concerned is that you should be there, 8-5. Perhaps in the past there were, none now. Will bofa want you?

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Everything! Management thinks of themselves. Promise you the moon to get the job done, then the promises are quickly forgotten. Worked 60 hours a week to get the new computer system up, and got a candy bar as a "thank you", only to give us "pink slips", and send the payroll department to Fort Worth, TX from Pasadena, CA. Just to save 8K per employee per year. Mozilo spends that in one day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some classes on Management Skills. Even the H/R Vice President would not even say "hello" to you...
