Pros

The fact that you get paid regardles of whether you do a good job.

Cons

This is one of the most nepotistic companies I've seen. People advance here by sleeping with people in power. There is no reward for going above and beyond. Instead, the firm prefers to institute a culture of fear and scare people into performing their jobs for low cost. The corporate bureaucracy wastes money and ties the hands of line managers. Many senior managers throughout the organization only care about their own pocketbooks and are therefore disingenuous with their communications. It could be due to incompetence, but that's equally pathetic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop chasing money and pay attention to the bloated infrastructure you've allowed to develop.

    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?
