    I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are good, and of course you get bank holidays off.

    Cons

    It is essentially a hostile work environment for the Financial Solutions Advisers who sit in the banks. You will fight with the bankers to get in front of clients. Regional managers are given their positions based on how well they are liked by their managers. Usually less than 5 years of experience in the industry. They will avoid problems when you ask for help.

    Advice to Management

    You have to manage EVERYONE, not just your success stories who do well because they sit in high traffic, high net worth locations.

    The number of projects a designer can get their hands on is quite impressive - even for a contractor.

    Pros

    The people you directly work with are great, the benefits are solid especially if you have a family but that’s about it

    Cons

    When talking to market managers and higher the problems become apparent. The company wants you to document an asinine amount of info while seeing back to back to back customers and burning yourself out. Unrealistic expectations are placed on employees to turn every sit into a mortgage or a business account - you WILL NOT hit your goals in many cases no matter how hard you try. This is by design, as talking to other RBs and RMs will show you that entire markets are set up to fail. Market managers do not care about your concerns and will blow you off for months - the only time mine cared was when I told him I was on my way out the door. Most importantly, pay is significantly lower than their competitors

    Advice to Management

    Just care about your employees a little more. Don’t ignore us when there are problems and don’t set unrealistic expectations and burn us out
