    I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues are generally nice, smart, and helpful.
    Good work life balance.
    Great maternity/paternity leave.
    Good 401K matching.

    Cons

    Some managers are very political and manipulative.
    Frequent annual reorganization.
    Overall code quality is low as unit testing and code reviews are not enforced.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers to treat people with respect and show some appreciation from time to time. You can tell a lot about a manager in the way he treats people who are leaving the bank.

    Lots of the banks are frugal now but come on, can’t you at least afford to supply some paper cups for coffee?
