    Pros

    The company is like a giant family. Everybody looks out for each other, and does their best to help when they see someone struggling. In the event you do have trouble in the position, the managers take the time to work with you, and if necessary transition you into a different, more suitable role before considering termination. They do everything they can to keep their people and use their strengths to the company's advantage. Benefits are great, lots of opportunity to be part of the community and local events (i.e. NASCAR, NBA games, NFL games - depending on location)

    Cons

    It is hard to get in from the outside. Positions that are posted first thing in the morning, usually have dozens of candidates within the hour. If you don't get your application in almost immediately after the position is posted, you may not even get looked it. And prior to getting an interview, there are personality tests you are required to take, and they will base even contacting you on the results of that test - without even meeting you first. There is a lot of movement as well, so don't necessarily expect that the job you were hired to do will be the same in a year or two.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the testing required to interview. I'd prefer you get to know me, to determine that I am a good fit, rather than by how I answer a test question. And sometimes, how I would respond isn't even an multiple choice option. Its not an accurate depiction of my character.

    Pros

    Benefits are great, pay and hours are decent. If your leadership team is good then you’ll be fine, if not, good luck!

    Cons

    Far from empathetic leaders. It’s like you are working for machines. The sales goals are outrageous and their expectations are borderline unethical.

    Advice to Management

    Have a personality!

    Company provides good benefits for employees

    Pros

    Great benefits, great salary, discounts, 4 weeks paid vacation for managers, 10 paid holidays and 10 sick days. Fast paced environment, multiple different lines of business so there is plenty of room for advancement. Bonus potential is pretty strong too if you hit your goals. They really have several programs in place to help employees grow with company. To be a successful Financial Center Manager you have to be able to adapt to constant change and have a positive outlook. I would recommend, definitely one of the best banks to work for.

    Cons

    Staffing at times can be a big challenge. Company is very focused on convenient banking options, ATM, online, mobile banking etc. Unfortunately not all clients are willing to adapt to this ever growing technology. If you can roll with some of the staffing gaps at times then you will be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, great company overall, not many cons.

    I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The only pro is that I met some great people. Even though I was told who I could or could not go to break or lunch with. Unfortunately those great people were cut from this horrible company because BAC doesn't care about who is a hard worker and who meets their numbers. They rely on the close minded opinions of their management sheep to weed out anyone who has an independent thought and strives to do what's right for the customer and company.

    Cons

    Low pay, high stress, unethical actions from Sr Mgmt. They don't care about their employees. People are just a number, easily replaced or cut. Your tenure doesn't matter. Your hard work and dedication doesn't matter. How other employees feel about you doesn't matter. This is the worst company you could ever work for!!

    Advice to Management

    If you're a manager in this company, you should just quit. Don't wait for them to target you. Go somewhere else where you'll be happy and compensated fairly.
