    Pros

    Hours, benefits, paid time off, paid holidays. Great first line managers.

    Cons

    Speaking only of my organization... Constantly changing and punitive pay incentive program. Overly petty and micromanaged. Constantly threatened with sanctions (write-ups, loss of incentive and job.

    Advice to Management

    Learning moments should not become cause for punitive action.

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits, vacation and sick time are unlike what any other company offers. There is a lot of opportunity for growth if you’re willing to move cities or states.

    Cons

    Management has become so top-heavy that your direct manager no longer has a say in your development or performance. I have routinely witnessed my manager struggle with policies and guidelines implemented from above but not given a choice or allowed to submit feedback. When policies and procedures change, it’s very clear the ones making the changes have little to no experience in the roles their changes effect.

    Advice to Management

    Team and lower level managers need to stand up to upper level management. Feedback needs to be heard and when policies are changed, better understanding behind the change would be helpful and allow front line employees to provide feedback before changes are implemented rather than after would prove to be a huge employee satisfier the bank always claims they’re looking for.
