    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    good place to work. good salary and bonus. flexible work hours. good place to build career. I recommend this organization.

    Cons

    sometimes work can be very hectic and may require work off hours and weekends. since its a large organization, sometimes its difficult to network between employees.

    Advice to Management

    arrange more career development option for the employees so can upgrade their skills and switch to jobs they like. There should be more networking events.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Bank of America full-time

    Pros

    lots of high profile clients, will look good on a resume

    Cons

    So much racism. There is a reason new hires don't stay for very long. LOTS of favourtism when it comes to working from home (even when you are given a laptop)/ approved sick leave. There is a huge aging workforce that will be retiring in the next few years but because the company culture is so bad there aren't adequete replacements. This place is honestly a human rights violation waiting to happen.

    I worked at Bank of America as an intern

    Pros

    Name recognition
    Working on a trading floor was neat

    Cons

    No co-op program - didn't even get a chance to meet the other co-ops there
    little room for learning - narrow focus
    basically do a lot of monotonous repetitive work so full time staff don't have to
