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

    Pros

    Professional organization. Atmosphere is very collegial. Lots of good people working there

    Cons

    Subject to all the same big-business inanity as other large companies. When profits drop 20 basis points, they stop providing coffee cups, spoons and sugar for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get in touch with what the working employees three levels down from you are experiencing.

    Many office locations for convenience of working closer to home.

    Look in the mirror.

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

    Pros

    It's about as stable as a bank can be (too big to fail). If you like being a cog in a gigantic impersonal machine (and, yes, some people do), you'll fit right in.

    Cons

    If you don't like being a cog in a gigantic impersonal machine, if you want the kind of less formal, more entrepreneurial, more creative environment (like most software people), a giant bank is not for you, and this is certainly one of the most giant banks.

    Advice to Management

    A banking culture is appropriate for bankers, but in a corporation so large, you have lots of employees whose jobs aren't about banking. Those people need a different culture. If you can't have two cultures in one company, spin those jobs off into a separate company that has a client-vendor relationship with the corporation and then that company can develop an appropriate culture.

    Pros

    Associates are great to work with. Many locations to work at.

    Cons

    Lacking in company culture. Constant reorganization of leadership makes it almost impossible to build culture within departments. Benefits package standard.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a good job of online town halls but need more local connection with associates.
