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

    Pros

    Good benefits, many good people to work with.

    Cons

    I worked in a call center as a customer service representative for the credit card division. You are a unit of production and as a typical large corporation they strive to keep costs as low as possible to maximize returns for the share holders. This means pay is kept as low as possible. It is routinely made clear you are replaceable.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the pay of your employees - even the lowly ones (as I was). It will pay dividends.

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

    Pros

    Confidence gained in speaking on daily basis to variety of customers and exposure to Banking, Sales and Marketing, and Credit and Risk Analysis.

    Cons

    Sales goals are not always attainable if the customer says no.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible to retirees and senior staff on sales goals especially when they do all they can to meet their goals and customers just do not want the products

    Good benefits but that is about it

    Cons

    The company is too big. Management is poor and the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing in the same department.

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

    Pros

    BofA is a huge company so there are numerous different departments to move to.

    Cons

    Associates are underappreciated and under paid in the technology area. Management expectations of hourly commitment is unrealistic. Senior management is too far removed from the reality of most situations to make well informed decisions regarding the direction of the department.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people, get a better understanding of what they truly do.

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

    Pros

    When I began, compensation was fair and the schedule was flexible in order to accommodate my school schedule. As time passed, schedule flexibility ended and bonus compensation for exceeding goals continually decreased.

    Cons

    Sitting for 8-10 hours at a stretch with little opportunity to move is hard on the body. Lots of people with health issues. Company is not pro-employee. Maine also closed branches and laid off different departments after stating this would not happen.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in employees in the U.S. Have a more health-friendly environment.

    Pros

    The company has a good benefit package and allowed good time for training. They did try to make the workplace comfortable and worker friendly.

    Cons

    Poor Management. No direction from the top down. The company made frequent Policy changes with little notice and expected the employees to have been implementing them previous to when they were told. Didn't let employees work to there strengths. While they would ask what type of work you preferred the management would frequently do the opposite.

    Advice to Management

    Work with the people you hire strengths instead of making them fit into a situation that hurts the employees and your companies productivity.
