    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are so many great employee benefits. The location is great. The pay is decent. Company outings are awesome.

    Cons

    Things constantly change. One day you are supposed to do things this way, then they want it done differently. Sometimes this interferes with customers you are working with, and it can cause them extra stress.

    Advice to Management

    The managers are great. However, they have so much on their plate that it can be difficult to ask for help.

    Pros

    People were great, Good atmosphere, hours weren't bad and opportunity to advance was there if you are willing to work hard.

    Pros

    There are some great teams to be a part of and pay can be good on these teams.
    Some good perks for financial products

    Cons

    Financial Advisors get all of the credit and perks
    The great teams are limited in number and it may be hard to get on them
    Compliance and regulations make it hard to work for the client

    Advice to Management

    Give a little bit more credit to the Client Associates and operations staff. The Financial Advisors get a lot of credit and not all of them reward their associates enough.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff, pay attention to your survey's, you have lost a lot of great workers who could not take it anymore. You should worry that many of your best employees have gone to work for a competitor, greed is not good.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    benefits and discounts. If you just want a paycheck, this is the place for you. But long term, this would not be a wise choice.

    Cons

    No career advancement unless you relocate. You must dress nice, look hot and make best friends with upper management to get promoted. Some managers aren't qualified academically nor analytically to be managers. Bank of america prefer to hire outside rather than within.

    Advice to Management

    Take some business management classes. Learn to be more approachable to your team. Give some positive feedback. Reward your team when needed and be proactive.
