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

    Pros

    Pay is competitive.
    Benefits are good.
    There are good people.

    Cons

    Long work hours, understaffing, fertile ground for management abuse.

    Advice to Management

    Create an environment where top management is not creating chaos and additional issues for all due to in-fighting.

    I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Above average pay for managerial and technical staff. Nice work facilities.

    Cons

    No working remote. Company got into the habit of laying people off 3-4 times a year during the down turn and haven't kick the habit. Get connected or get caught in a wave of Reduction in Force (RIF). No idea how employees last more than 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like people not a commodity. Direct management and senior management don't care about what you if it does not related to work. Got pictures of your vacation or special event. Keep them at home. Feeling is, if you have time to share photos you don't have enough work. See RIF in Cons.
    Bank has a callus disregard to the impact of a lay off. Won't assist or give you time to find another internal job.

    "Great Benefits!!"

    Current Employee - Home Servicing Specialist in Charlotte, NC
    Current Employee - Home Servicing Specialist in Charlotte, NC

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are better than the average company.

    Cons

    Poor management--managers often preach "open door policy", but this is definitely not the case. Speaking with a manager about a genuine concern often times makes you a target. No room for growth in certain departments.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits. Good communication. They really work with your schedule. Good team leadership. Everyone works toward a common goal.

    Cons

    Long commute. Not really a lot of cons for this company. I don't know what else to say so I am just typing to meet minimum word requirements.
