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

    Pros

    There are a great deal of opportunities if you work outside of the banking centers. Most of the people I worked with had been with the company for 5 to 40 years so there is a chance for longevity. The benefits are excellent and can be extended to family and partners.

    Cons

    If you don't know the right people it can be hard to move into a new role. Networking is critical. There are also frequent org changes so its possible to be moved into new roles every or under a new executive every year.
