    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Bank of America full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    great benefits, best I've ever had. Great medical, dental, vision for employee and family, 401k, pension, corporate discount program, and volunteer hours.

    Cons

    Team managers aren't really trained as managers. They're just thrown into positions, and for the most part, most of them are ill-prepared to MANAGE. They tend to be good at front line support, but are not actual managers and this can lead to various levels of HR issues. Team Manager roles are sold as stepping stones and the pay reflects that. Although benefits are top notch, pay leaves much to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Assign more prestige to the front line manager role, and don't sell it as a corporate stepping stone. Pay team managers more and screen them or stringently accordingly. Empower them. Protect them from the political dangers of middle management. You'll see a huge shift in company culture and associate satisfaction.
